“That voice wasn’t necessary; this looks like mockery” – Actor Yul Edochie faces backlash as he shares trailer for new movie on Peter Obi (See)
Controversial Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has raised eyebrows after he shared a trailer of his new movie project titled, “Peter Obi.”
Taking to his Instagram page on Thursday, February 2, the actor and movie producer revealed he has been working on the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and shared the trailer.
In the trailer, Yul Edochie who played Peter Obi altered his voice to mimic that of the presidential candidate.
However, the way Yul spoke in the movie, mimicking Obi, didn’t sit well with his supporters. Yul was heavily criticised and accused of mocking the former Anambra state governor.
Reacting, an Instagram user @obidiya.1 wrote, “Casting with Peter Obi name is ok but that voice is not his please. Edit bfr u release it. Don’t disrespect our President like u did to May. T for thanks”.
@icey_kingblaise, “Nice one.. But the voice wasn’t necessary.. You can pass your message without mimicking.. BTW, that’s not even Peter Obi’s voice! He has a nice and meek voice. This looks like mockery to me #RESPECTFULLY❤️”.
@ezeceey, “What type of voice act is this? You should have used your normal voice on this we will still understand. This looks more like mockery.”
