Nigerian rapper Phyno has shared his opinion about the rampant practice of polygamy by entertainment players.
Speaking during an interview with The Whistler, Phyno stated that having a child outside one’s marriage should not be described as polygamy.
According to him, when situations arise, it’s imperative to take up the responsibilities and cater for the child. He further insisted that home breaking is not polygamy, however, if a man intentionally decides to take another wife, while still married to another woman is what polygamy is.
He said, “Homes breaking is not polygamy, polygamy is when someone willingly says ‘I’m going to marry two wives,’ some people are caught in a situation and you can’t call that polygamy so let’s be clear Muslims practice polygamy.
“You Feel What Happens In The Industry Is People Getting Caught In Situations?
It can happen to you; it can happen to anyone.
“If you are caught in a situation, you have to stand up as a man and take responsibility for your child, you can’t call that polygamy. We always have to be clear on this because people come out to this.
“Polygamy is when I say I’m going to marry more than one wife that’s polygamy. Situation happens to people and they are always unplanned, you called that polygamy. I don’t have any position on (polygamy).”
