‘My first wife left me no choice’: Why I married Mercy Aigbe — Kazim Adeoti

Yoruba film mogul and entrepreneur, Kazim Adesoji Adeoti (popularly known as Adekaz), who has taken Nollywood actress ‘Mercy Aigbe’ as a second wife, is defending his honour as his first wife, Oluwafunsho, has accused him of bringing another woman to the home she largely contributed to building.

Disclosing why he had to marry a second wife, the Nigerian movie marketer claimed his first wife, left him no choice “when she relocated permanently to the US”.

In a since-deleted Instagram post, Adekaz said; “I have read many things that have been written about me and my family. Many of which are fabricated lies and some directly from my first wife (which understandably is angry I married a second wife),” he wrote.

In an already deleted Instagram post, Kazim explained he is still very much married to two wives which his religion permits but with some conditions, and is aware his first wife ‘Funsho Adeoti’ is upset he took another wife, but he was recently in the United states to see his family, and try to get back into Funsho’s good graces.

His post reads “At this point, it is necessary I put record straight. I have two wives. One lives in the US while the other lives with me in Nigeria. As a matter of fact, I just got back from America 3 days ago where I spent quality time with my family and tried to mend fences with my first wife who is obviously still angry I married a second wife (A move my religion permits as a Muslim ).”

‘’And talking about being a Muslim and a responsible man, I make sure none of my family in the US or Nigeria is suffering. It is laughable that some people said I have abandoned my US family.”

“For the record, I ensure my US family gets 1500 dollars since 2016 monthly until recently when I reviewed it to 1000 dollars cos our daughter is now in the private university and I have been solely responsible for her school fees and upkeep.”

Kazim also added he built the house himself but his first wife contributed with furnishing material, just like the second wife has done. He also gave his reason for marrying a second wife, stating his first wife relocated permanently to another country.

“In as much as there is nothing bad in husband and wife building house together, in my case, we did not. I built the house by myself,”

“When I was furnishing the house, she bought some furnishing materials and part of the money I have refunded. My second wife had added some furnishing to the house as well.”

“It is not in my character to speak ill of people who were once friends not to talk of my first wife (who is still my wife as we speak). I will not speak ill of her for the sake of good and bad times we shared and the good kids that God gave us.”

“It is understandable that my first wife is unhappy about getting a second wife but she left me no choice when she relocated permanently to the US.”

“I am a Muslim and Islam permits me to marry more than one wife as long as I take care of them and I don’t maltreat them. I can stand before God and man that as a man, I have done my best not to maltreat them.”

“And I will not paint my first wife bad no matter what or use foul language on her and her family (who have been with us all through this journey).”
