Polygamy, a popular term used to describe the practice or custom of having more than one wife or husband at the same time is illegal in Ghana and the laws of the country but the restrictions are not heavily enforced.
Polygamous marriages are illegal under civil law, though are arguably considered to be legal under customary law.
Shemima, a former contestant of TV3’s love-finding reality show has publicly endorsed polygamy marriage.
She has also counselled women to endorse polygamy in order to put an end to the promiscuity on the part of men and end the baby mama phenomenon which is rife in recent times.
In a self-recorded video sighted by unitedshowbiz.com.gh, the reality star posted, she said women have a role to play if men have to stop cheating and infecting them with sexually transmitted diseases.
Shemima claims that a polygamous man never cheats because he has women to care for all of his needs, notably emotionally and sexually.
She went on to say that polygamous males receive greater benefits from God as a consequence of the combined prayers of the ladies with whom he has settled down.
In a nutshell, she stated that she would not mind being Ghanaian millionaire Dr Kwaku Oteng’s sixth wife.
Shemima stated this in response to the widespread rumour that blogger Zion Felix had two babies with two separate ladies at the same time.
Business mogul, Dr Kwaku Oteng of Angel FM and Adonko Bitters fame is reported to have 5 wives.
In May this year, there came a lot of rumours that billionaire Kwaku Oteng has taken a fourth wife called Nana Akosua Achiaa Linda.
The rumours became widespread after Linda went to the funeral of Dr Kwaku Oteng’s mother to display like she was one of the wives of the owner of all the companies under Angel Group.
Despite all these and many more which unfolded in the social media space in the last few months, there was no real confirmation of these rumours.
