In other events, Pete Edochie was questioned about his choice not to have a second wife during the interview with Chude, the seasoned Nollywood icon. He replied that he had no need for another wife because his present wife had given him five sons already. When his first wife had given him the children he had always wanted, he saw no reason to go for a second marriage.
Although he personally did not see the need for polygamy, he said he wouldn’t condemn it because everyone makes decisions for different reasons. The movie celebrity provided the example of a man who married a second wife after his wife forbade him from having sex with her.
