Veteran Nigerian comedian, Ali Baba has waded into the recent story that has got social media talking all week and it has to do with Nigerian actor, Yul Edochie’s decision to take another wife.
Yul Edochie made headlines when he announced that he’s had a child with his second wife, Judy Austin which sent the internet into a frenzy.
The news came as a shock to the entertainment fraternity and it is still one of the most discussed topics on the internet today.
According to Ali Baba, there is absolutely nothing wrong with polygamy in an African setting, and even Christianity does not frown on it.
Ali Baba appeared as a guest on TVC’s Your View, where he defended his position by submitting that Africans have come to embrace the western way of life moving away from one of the traditions in Africa which is the ability to marry more than one wife.
Weighing into the controversies surrounding actor Yul Edochie’s decision to take a second wife, Ali Baba posed a question on whether it would have been preferable for him to have a baby mama than to marry the mother of his child.
The comedian ended his comment by suggesting that there may be more to Yul and May’s 16-year marriage that is not known.
