July 20, 2015 – Jide Kosoko Opens Up: I Have Over 12 Kids & 4 Wives, I Lost 2 To Childbirth Within A Year

See excerpts from veteran Nollywood actor Jide Kosoko’s recent interview with Encomium

How have you been managing your role as a father, husband, actor, role model, etc., over the years?

These are different sectors of my life. I know my responsibility as a father. I have eight of my kids who have graduated from the University. I make the money from being an actor to play my role as a father and husband. I try my best to remain focused and hardworking to remain a role model to many people.

Some of your children and fans were not happy when you took two wives. What’s your comment?

I never envisaged being a polygamist though I am a product of one. My parents didn’t support it too. 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.

Do you mind sharing those things that led to your marrying two women again?

The situation that surrounded marrying my wives made me go for the two.

How many children do you have?

I can’t be precise but my children are more than a dozen.

      @Arc go back to the drawing board again,the guy said he lost two wives to childbirth not his children. That simply means both wives died in the same manner during child labour. The child appeared to survive but the mother did not.
      There is no where in that interview where Jide said he lost his children.
