April 1st, 2015 – Jide Kosoko Laments: I Lost My First & Second Wive To Childbirth Complications Within A Year
The Nollywood veteran recently talked with the Vanguard on how he became a man with many wives and how he lost his first and second wife during childbirth.
In his words:
‘My first wife was a business woman. I craved for somebody who was in the same field with me. In those days, the best advice you got was from your better half and that was how the second woman came to be. Along the line, I lost the two to childbirths within 11months interval.
‘I had seven children as at that time, so I didn’t plan remarrying or having 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 was not intentional but God’s design over which I do not have power.’
