Veteran Nollywood actor, Jide Kosoko lost his wife, Henrietta Kosoko on June 6, 2016 to complications from diabetes. The actor spoke to
The actor spoke to Tribune recently about life after his wife’s death, his family, his stand on the MOPICON bill and his achievements so far.
The actor said he had regrets treading the path of polygamy and does not intend to have more children.
About having more children:
“That will be madness. Let me say this today for the first time, I never planned to be a polygamist. I found myself in that situation and I had to adjust to the system. I didn’t set out in life to go into polygamy. So for me, having more children at this stage is madness. Apart from age, If you hear that Jide Kosoko welcomes new baby tomorrow, I am sure you will say this man is mad. Am I going to be selling the children to make money?”
About his regrets practicing polygamy:
“Let me tell you, I don’t pray that my enemy should practice polygamy. And, this should be a lesson to the young ones coming. I know some people will say their religion permits it, but the religion did not enforce it. I have serious business to do now. I have young children to take care of.”
He is a pro-MOPICON actor and wishes to see the bill passed.
“I am part of the body that set up Motion Picture Council of Nigeria (MOPICON) and I will be grateful to God if it actually comes to be.”
