Jide Kosoko opens up on how he lost two wives within a year and how he married two wives again
Nollywood veteran actor, Jide Kosoko has opened up on his marital history.
In a recent chat with punch.ng, the ace actor who is seen to be ladies’ man, said; “I have been blackmailed many times, but I sailed through. They have called me a ‘ritualist’ before, which means I am a murderer.”
“Initially, as a human being, I felt bad. But my skin is too thick for all that rubbish. Instead of feeling bad, I will go on my knees and pray to God to give His judgment.”
“And I always see these people get their judgment. I don’t want to mention names. I don’t know anything about what is happening to Kemi Olunloyo and I don’t follow her on social media. Apart from her, there are other people who have rubbished my name in the past.”
“Becoming a polygamist wasn’t my design. With my upbringing, I am not supposed to be a polygamist. Though my father was a polygamist, he didn’t marry the number of women I have married.”
“My first wife, Sola’s mother, was working with the Nigerian Customs Service. She was not involved in my industry and then I would travel for two months.”
“So, I was tempted to take a second wife. But unfortunately for me, in the circumstances I cannot explain till today, I lost two wives within a year.”
“You can imagine that! So, I decided not to remarry again, though I had girlfriends; I was a ladies’ man. Two of my girlfriends were very close to the house and my friends too would come with their girlfriends.”
“So, we were almost turning the house into a brothel. Later, my doctor, a lady, visited me and advised me to remarry. She said it was the best for me, insisting that I was too young to be without a woman. I lost my two wives in 1992 and 1993 respectively, and I was not up to 40 then.”
“I agreed to take a wife in the long run, but I had two women who were intimate with me – Henrietta and Alhaja Bimbo. Since I couldn’t say no to either of them, I married two wives again.”
