Kanayo explains why he supports the idea of having multiple wives

Kanayo O. Kanayo, has opened up about his position on monogamous unions, noting that he is against the practice of marrying one wife.

The veteran actor said he does not believe in monogamy because it is an imported culture which is alien to the African way of life – which embraces polygamy.

Kanayo, who is married to one wife; Nneka Onyekwere, spoke when he appeared as a guest in a recent episode of The Honest Bunch podcast.

He said; “I don’t believe in one wife. It is not our culture. It is not our tradition. It is not who we are. These are imported things”.

The 62-year-old thespian also claimed he never knew about divorce until he left the outh East and moved to Lagos state. He emphasised that the Igbo man prefers to die in marriage than divorce.

“I never knew anything about divorce until we came to Lagos. The Igbo man prefers to die in the marriage than divorcing,” Kanayo said.
