Jide Kosoko Says God Designed For Him To Marry Six Wives
Veteran actor Jide Kosoko has revealed it was God’s divine plan for him to marry six wives. The actor made the reveal during a chat with Vanguard Newspapers.
The 66-year-old actor shared he got married as a young man to two women and they died in childbirth. He then had to marry more wives to fill the gap they left.
“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,” he said.
“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 interval. I had seven children at that time, so I didn’t plan to remarry or have more children again.” He continued.

“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.”
Jide Kosoko is one of Nigeria’s most prolific thespians. The actor, director, and producer have featured in several Nollywood and Nollywood Yoruba films including “Last Flight To Abuja”, “King of Boys”, “Sugar Rush” and more. His daughter Abidemi Kosoko is also an actress.
