Veteran Nollywood actor, Jide Kosoko has revealed that it wasn’t his intention to marry four women.
He made this statement while speaking in an interview with Vanguard.
According to her, it was God’s design that made him a polygamist, so, he never has any right to battle with God on this matter.
Jide Kosoko also revealed that he first got married to two women but lost them to child birth. They both had seven children in total.
He added that after their death, he was persuaded by his doctor and relatives to get married and this led to him having two wives.
In his words;
“I never envisaged being a polygamist though I am a product of one. My parents didn’t support it either. My first wife was a businesswoman. I craved for somebody who was in the same field as me.
“In those days, the best advice you can get is from your better half and that was how the second woman came to be. Along the line, I lost the two-to-child births within 11 months interval. I had seven children at that time, so I didn’t plan to remarry or have 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 is not intentional but God’s design which I do not have a right over.”
