Ned Nwoko, billionaire husband of Nollywood actress Regina Daniels, has finally opened up why he has more than one wife and prefers to marry young women.
Speaking in an interview with BBC Igbo, Ned explained the economical reason behind his choice of polygamy. According to him, the average Northerner has at least two wives, which he agrees helps the society by preventing the women from being promiscuous.
“The average Northerner marrying two, three, four women, they are helping the society because it is the economic downturn that has affected so many women who you see doing prostitution and all that.
He also noted that the polygamist nature of northerners has helped to increase their population and made them the majority.
Nwoko also complained about how enlightenment has encouraged monogamy even though it is not our culture. “I love my culture as I know it, not as they are trying to dilute it. Igbo culture is wonderful and should be promoted the way it has always been.
”But even looking at that, look at your population in Nigeria and what I will call economy of marriage, as an Igbo man with one wife, four children, a Northerner has four wives with five children each, in the next 10 years, 20 years, imagine the population of the Northerners.” he stated.
Obviously Ned Nwoko believes Polygamous marriage is the best.
