CELEBRITY GIST: Veteran Nollywood Actor Prince Jide Kosoko has reveal he did not intend to become a polygamist and how he was forced to remarry because his house was gradually turning into a brothel.
Speaking with Punch, the actor who has lost 3 wives stated as a human being, he felt bad when some persons accused him of using his wives for murder and how losing 2 of his wives with a year remains a mystery.
These were Jide Kosoko’s own words:
“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 so bad. But my skin is too thick for that rubbish. Instead of feeling bad, i will go on my kneels and pray to God to give His judgement.”
He went on to say:
“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 married. My first wife’s mother Sola’s mother was working with the custom service. She was not involved in my industry and at time would travel for 2 months. So i was tempted to take a second wife but unfortunately for me, in the circumances, i can’t explain till today, how i lost 2 wives within a year. You can imagine that. So i decided to remarry 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 mt house into a brothel.”
He concluded by saying:
“Later my doctor visited me and advised me to remarry. She said it was the best for me insisting i was too young to be without a woman. I lost 2 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 2 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” – Jide Kosoko
