Veteran Nollywood actor Kanayo O. Kanayo recently shared his thoughts on monogamy during an episode of ‘The Honest Bunch’ podcast. Kanayo expressed his belief that monogamy is not part of African culture, favoring polygamy instead.

“I don’t believe in one wife. It is not our culture. It is not our tradition. It is not who we are. These are imported things,” he stated.

Kanayo also mentioned that he was unfamiliar with the concept of divorce until he moved to Lagos from the South East. He remarked, “I never knew anything about divorce until we came to Lagos. The Igbo man prefers to die in the marriage than divorcing.”
