Jide Kosokoâ€™s family
Your father Jide Kosoko married four women?
Eyin leâ€™n ka o â€“ You are the one counting for him.
When the other women came, how did you feel?
To be realistic, I am not pretending and I donâ€™t like pretending. I didnâ€™t feel good. I thought in my mind that he was making a very big mistake. I was not bold enough to call him and tell him that â€œDaddy, what you are doing is wrongâ€. Why would he go and marry more than one wife? Okay, I lost my mum and my first step mum â€“ My mum was my fatherâ€™s first wife, and together with his second wife, my father lost both of them.
He was still young then and the truth is itâ€™s only logical for him to remarry another wife, which nobody would blame him for doing. But going for two again is what I really disagreed with him.
