From Chipukeezy to Suzanna Owiyo – Celebs who openly support polygamy
Kenyan comedian Chipukeezy has become the latest celebrity to openly discuss their acceptance of polygamy.
In a recent candid interview, Chipukeezy declared that one woman is not enough for him, while expressing his desire to continue the tradition of his polygamous family.
“I can’t marry one woman, for a fact,” Chipukeezy said during the interview.
Having grown up in a polygamous family, Chipukeezy was exposed to the concept from a young age and wishes to carry on the family legacy.
“Every household has its own dynamics. It’s a personal matter. I have many wives it’s the truth. In the whole family, it is me who has taken the challenge, not to disappoint our elder,” Chipukeezy said.
Expressing his unwavering support for polygamy, the comedian believes that as long as he can take care of his family, he should be able to have multiple wives and extend his legacy.
He acknowledged that he had attempted monogamous relationships but found that it wasn’t the right fit for him.
Nairobi Woman Representative, Esther Passaris, has similarly openly acknowledged having a co-wife. She is married to Pius Mbugua Ngugi, the owner of Thika Coffee Mills.
Singer Suzanna Owiyo is also in a polygamous marriage and has been a second wife to Ounga Ogunda for over 16 years. Together, they have been blessed with one child.
Gospel singer Muigai Wa Njoroge is married to two wives, namely Njeri Muigai and Queen Stacey.
Cotu boss Francis Atwoli is known for having several wives, with the youngest being TV journalist, Mary Kilobi.
Citizen TV journalist Stephen Letoo has also been vocal in supporting polygamy, advocating for women to assert their rightful positions in their men’s lives.
