Nollywood Actor; Jide Kosoko Says “God Designed Him As A Polygamist”

Polygamy, a practice that involves marrying multiple spouses is what many women don’t wish for themselves but most men confidently indulge in. When a man is married to more than one wife at the same time, sociologists call this polygamy. When a woman is married to more than one husband at a time, it is called polyamory and it’s rare.

Veteran Nollywood actor; Jide Kosoko, who has four wives revealed in an interview with Vanguard that he became a polygamist by God’s design which he does not have a right over it.

He said;

“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 childbirths within 11 months intervals. 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.”


Life presents many choices, the choices we make determine our future. It all depends on the action we take to accomplish what you want or what you deserve is entirely up to you. No one is going to seek you out and no one is going to do it for you. It’s your move because all powers and choices belong to God.
