Jide Kosoko opens up on being a polygamist, says "it's my biggest regret"




Veteran actor Jide Kosoko who lost his wife Henrietta Kosoko last year has revealed that one of his biggest regrets in life is marrying more than one wife.

The actor disclosed in a recent re­port, how he became a polygamist.

Kosoko said, “I did not really plan it and it was designed beyond my power because I never planned to marry so many wives.

“If I have to be frank, I regret being a polygamist. I must confess.


“I first married one wife but she was not part of the job I was doing and in those days, you needed a very trust­worthy assistant.

“That pushed me to marrying the second wife. I stayed with them until I lost them both eleven months apart in the same scenario – childbirth.

“I wouldn’t have married again but a doctor of mine advised against it. He said I was still young and needed to take a wife.

“I looked at the situation critically and realized that a lot of my friends were coming to my apartment with their girlfriends and I saw myself as becoming irresponsible and my house was a free house.

“Some of those of my friends were married yet they still brought their girlfriends to my house.

“I felt if I had a wife, all that would not happen so I tried to get another wife. I was romancing two women with the mind of settling down with one.

“But eventually, the two entered. That was how I became a polygamist,” he quipped, reinstating that it would amount to madness if he remarries again.
