Yul Chibuike Daniel Edochie popularly known as Yul Edochie (born 7 January 1982) is a Nigerian actor, film director and a politician. He was named after popular Russian actor Yul Brynner. Yul Edochie is from Anambra State Nigeria, the son of Nigera actor Pete Edochie. He was raised both in Lagos and Enugu. He is the last of 6 children.

Yul Edochie is known to be one of the top actors in Nigeria who took the movie industry by storm with his perfect blend of good looks and top-notch acting. He has managed to make a name for himself, proving that he is not famous just because of his father but also of his own right.

His career in the industry began after relocating to Lagos from Enugu in 2005. When he arrived Lagos, for proximity to movie locations, he moved in with Nonso Diobi who housed and fed him. His intention was to hustle and become a big wig in the industry. And Luckily, that same year, he debuted in The Exquires together with Late Justus Esiri and Enebeli Elebuwa. Then, in 2007, he rose to stardom after featuring in the movie Wind of Glory together with Genevieve Nnaji and Desmond Elliot. Since then, Yul has gone on to act with other prominent artistes like Patience Ozokwor, Mercy Johnson, John Dumelo, Olu Jacobs, Osita Iheme, Chinedu Ikedieze and many more.  

Yul Edochie launched his own film academy, Yul Edochie Academy in 2015. The actor launched his Academy as a subsidiary of Yul Edochie Arts World. Founded in 2015 by the filmmaker, the academy was established in line with the vision of the filmmaker, to build an army of well-grounded, focused and professional actors and actresses, whom he can mentor and steer to greatness.

The academy, as stated by Yul Edochie, is supposed to train the next generation of Nollywood actors and actresses, a duty which he intends to personally see to. Also, the academy gives talented people the opportunity to be introduced to the Nigerian Film Industry.

Also, in 2018, he was appointed as a senior special assistant to the governor of Anambra state.

Yul Edochie’s wife and children

Yul Edochie happened to break many hearts especially that of the young ladies when he announced that he was engaged and getting married to the love of his life “May Aligwe” who he dated for six years. This was around the time he gained admission to the University of Port Harcourt and although he had nothing to offer at the time, she agreed to settle down with him and finally, they got married in 2004 when Yul was 22 years old.
