Actor Solomon Akiyesi now claims: ‘I did not attempt to marry another woman while married’ ,On April 13th 2013 he attempted to marry another woman in Lagos while he had a wife in Port Harcourt. I even sent paparazzi there to cover the disruption that went down when his real wife showed up at the wedding venue . But now Solomon claims he wasn’t attempting to marry another woman, that it was all blown out of proportion…
What happened to the lady you were about to wed in Lagos?
‘Let me explain this, I was not going to wed anyone. It is not possible to wed another woman when you have a subsisting marriage. My wife…my ex wife and the woman I was purportedly marrying knew why we did what we did on April 13 2013. But the story became so crafted to look like I was actually going to marry another woman. I took all the shame and shut my mouth. Maybe one day the truth will be revealed. But who would marry a woman in Africa without paying the bride price and other traditional rites? And maybe proper court process. I challenge anyone to come out and say I did any of those processes on another woman beyond my wife. Which of my family members was there at the so called wedding? Who can stand and say I gave them a wedding invitation for April 13 2013? I did not marry or attempt to marry another woman as overblown by idle minds. I am a man and if I felt my wife no longer served her purpose in my life, I would disengage through due process and marry somebody else. After all I have seen men who would bring in another woman even into their matrimonial home while the original marriage subsist. Did I do such? No I didn’t. What happened on April 13 2013 was a combination of factors, both spiritual and physical. Whoever will use that against me may as well do that a million times and perpetually dwell on that. I have no apology.’ he told Encomium. SEE MORE ON PAGE 2
