“I don’t mind having more kids” – Nigerian man with 3 wives and 18 children
Mohammed Suleiman became a viral sensation after he posted photos of his large family on Facebook during the Eid-el-Kabir celebration has said he doesn’t mind having more children as long as he has a good job that earns him legitimate money.
He granted an interview with Punch recently where he opened up about how he felt after his family photos went viral, his plans for more kids, and how he handles the financial obligations of having many kids.
“Actually, it is a tradition in my family for everyone to come together and take pictures, and I’ve been posting them on my page for years. If you follow my page, you’ll see them, but this year it became something else. I just discovered it is trending and has gone viral,” Sulaiman said.
He said he didn’t plan to marry multiple wives because he was scared of taking caring of many wife and kids, but here he is with three wives and 18 children with plans to take a new wife soon.
“Before I got married, if they had given me a wife, I would have said they should divide me into two. This is because the way we were brought up, we constantly heard about the difficulty of taking care of a wife and the children, so it made me feel like having half a wife, not a full wife. That was my mentality then, but as I grew and understood the philosophy of life, I realised that all I needed was to strive and work hard to cater to their needs, and I could see a lot of opportunities to do that without even working in a collar job. I also see it as a means to cater to women because there are many of them without a husband. I now have three wives, and I’m hoping to marry another one in two months’ time.”
