Yul Edochie, the Nigerian actor, has lost Kambilichukwu, his eldest son with May, his first wife, TheCable Lifestyle can report.


On Thursday morning, the internet was inundated with reports that Kambilichukwu is dead.

He was said to have developed a seizure while playing football with his colleagues in school.

Kambilichukwu was rushed to Mother and Child hospital in Lagos, where he was confirmed dead.


The actor is yet to make an official statement about his son’s demise.

But when TheCable Lifestyle contacted a very close associate of the family, the source confirmed that the news is true.

“He told me about what happened. He wrote to me, he said my first son is gone, slumped while playing football in school. Got to the hospital, and he was gone. My heart is shattered,” the source said.


Kambilichukwu’s death comes about two months after Yul celebrated his 16th birthday.

“A very happy 16th birthday to my first son, Kambilichukwu Leo Yul-Edochie. May God lead and protect you always. With many more years. Daddy loves you,” the actor wrote on Instagram.

Yul and May got married in 2004, after dating for six years.

Following Kambilichukwu’s demise, the couple’s children are now three — Dani, Karl, and Victory.


In April 2022, Yul unveiled Judy Austin as his second wife with a picture of their child.
