Veteran Nollywood actor, Jide Kosoko, has disclosed that marrying more than one wife was never his plan but the act of God.
The actor explained that though he is a product form a polygamous home, he and his parents never supported the idea either and the sad part of it is that he lost two of his wives during child birth.
Jide further explained that with seven children he had then, he never thought of remarrying or plan on having more children but after several advise from his doctor and relatives, he decided to take another wife he insisted on having her own children too.
“I never envisaged being a polygamist though I am a product of one. My parents didn’t support it too. My first wife was a business woman. I craved for somebody who was in the same field with me. In those days, the best advice you got was from your better half and that was how the second woman came to be. Along the line, I lost the two to childbirths within 11months interval,” he told Vanguard.
“I had seven children as at that time, so I didn’t plan remarrying or having more children again. But after much persuasion from my doctor and relatives, I decided to have a woman with the agreement of not having more children but a complete African woman will not agree to that. One thing led to the other and I got two women again. So being a polygamist was not intentional but God’s design over which I do not have power,” he stated.
