Renowned billionaire cum philanthropist, Ned Nwoko has revealed in a recent interview that he married all his six wives just three weeks after meeting them.
The well-known polygamous man made this known when he was interviewed by the BBC in Pidgin.
“I married Regina DANIELS within weeks” That’s how i married other wives.
“I don’t believe in dating anybody to marry them, when you Marry them you can fall in love from within the marriage.
Like my time in the 60’s they were not dating, there were arranged marriage, most girls were expected to be virgins when getting married.
Before I met Regina I don’t know about her, I don’t watch movies, I never watch movies. I met her the first time when she came to my house with her mother with her siblings, my place in delta is like a tourist place, I liked her and that was it. Whether I Marry another wife or not it’s nothing, she (Regina Daniels) knows it can happen (I can Marry another wife), I came from a very polygamous environment, I love children, I want more children. She (Regina Daniels) knows it and my other wives know it, we will see what happens in the future. “Umunwanyi Juru everywhere”(everywhere is filled with women).
Before the advent of Christianity our tradition allows men to marry many wives. Christianity doesn’t allow multiple marriages in the South but an average man in the South has up to 10 girlfriends, I love my culture, Igbo culture is wonderful, and should be promoted the way it has always been.
An Igbo man marries one wife with four children a man from the North marries 4 wives with four children each that’s 24 and their population is increasing, Igbo man will never catch up he said”
