Yul Edochie, a popular actor in the Nollywood industry, has said that there is too much jealousy and envy among Igbo people.
The Nigerian star gave this claim in a Facebook post on his verified account on Wednesday.
In his words, if any Igbo person is progressing in anything he does, his biggest hater would be a fellow Igbo person.
Edochie, who is also of Igbo extraction from Anambra State, argued that a successful Igbo man’s enemy might be members of his family.
He called on his fellow Igbo indigenes to change and do better, asking them to stop the envy and the competition.
“Too much jealousy and envy amongst Igbos. Why?
If you’re doing well as an Igbo person, your biggest hater is your fellow Igbo person. Sometimes even your family members. Igbos we need to do better. Why?
“We’re great. Stop the envy. Stop the competition. Things change when we address them,” he said.
