Veteran actor Jide Kosoko has said that actors and actresses in the Nollywood industry sleep with each other.
Speaking in an interview over the weekend, the actor said that even though actors and actresses engage in adultery and fornication, the Nollywood industry is one of the most disciplined in the world.
Kosoko noted that actors and actresses educate, entertain, admonish, enlighten the world through their artistic works.
He said: “That is far from the truth. In fact, we are one of the professions whose members are very disciplined.
“People tend to make noise out of everything we do as public figures. That is not to say we do not date or sleep with one another.
“The profession is a blessed one and people should please see the good side of our profession too.
“We educate, entertain, admonish, enlighten the world through our artistic works.”
About his personal life, Kosoko revealed that he did not become a polygamist intentionally.
The veteran actor explained that his marrying four wives is God’s design which he has no power over
He said; “I never envisaged being a polygamist though I am a product of one. My parents didn’t support it either. My first wife was a businesswoman. I craved for somebody who was in the same field as me.
“In those days, the best advice you can get is from your better half and that was how the second woman came to be.
“Along the line, I lost the two to childbirths within 11 months interval. I had seven children at that time, so I didn’t plan to remarry or have more children again.
“But after much persuasion from my doctor and relatives, I decided to have a woman with the agreement of not having more children but a complete African woman will not agree to that.
“One thing led to the other and I got two women again. So being a polygamist is not intentional but God’s design which I do not have a right over.”
