Nollywood icon, Jide Kosoko, who recently buried his wife, Henrietta, has shared his greatest regrets in life which he attributed to being a polygamist.
The actor, married to four wives, three of whom are dead, said he does not wish his enemy practice polygamy.
In a chat with the Nigerian Tribune, the 62-year-old veteran actor, who has over 12 children, has offered a word of caution for those who practice polygamy.
According to the actor, one’s religion is not necessarily an excuse to marry many wives. He said,
“Let me say this today for the first time, from the beginning of my life I never planned to be a polygamist. I found myself in that situation and I had to adjust to the system. I didn’t set out in life to go into polygamy.
“Let me tell you, I don’t pray that my enemy should practice polygamy. And, this should be a lesson to the young ones coming. I know some people will say their religion permits it, but the religion did not enforce it. I have serious business to do now. I have young children to take care of.”
The actor said he wished God could reduce his age to 10 because he has many corrections to make.
Asked if he would love to have more children, he said,
“That will be madness. Stage madness. Apart from age, if you hear that Jide Kosoko welcomes new baby tomorrow, I am sure you will say this man is mad. Am I going to be selling the children to make money?” Kosoko asked rhetorically.
