Veteran actor, Jide Kosoko, would have been celebrating his 52 years of acting career, but the death of his wife, Henrietta, some weeks ago made him to shelve the plans.
He has refuted claims he will be getting married again after the death of his three wives.
Kosoko lost his third wife, an actress – Henrietta one week after her 52nd birthday. She died after a brief battle with diabetes.
The actor made news headlines after he was alleged to be behind the death of his his past wives, including Henrietta.
One of such allegations was that he used his wives for rituals.
But the actor in a chat with the Punch reinstated that it would amount to madness if he remarries again.
He said, “Forget all those things you heard. She was ill. She died of complications that arose from diabetes. Honestly, my family, friends and colleagues stood by me and I appreciate that.
“Of course, you will always have one or two persons, who would say one or two negative things. But you see, in my life, I have fought so many battles and I have won all.
“It is only people who want to be crushed that would confront me in war, because the Almighty God has His plans for me.
“It is just quite unfortunate that these things are happening to me, but I would still thank the Almighty God for everything.
“There are reasons for everything and I want to believe that it is natural.”
Asked if he’ll be taking a new wife, he said, “If at this age, I still think of taking a wife, when I have over a dozen children, it is madness.
“On January 12, I will be 63. I am taking care of some of the children, while others are now adults.
“She left and left me with two teenagers,” Kosoko added.
