Quote of the day: Adewale Ayuba on marrying many wives
“I am a proud Muslim. I’ve been to the holy pilgrimage almost every year. My father was a prominent Islamic scholar from Ikenne-Remo in Ogun State. I can never marry a second wife. I have searched everywhere in the Holy Koran, I have not seen where it is written that a Muslim must marry more than one wife. Some people are merely twisting the scripture to satisfy their selfish desires by acquiring women and siring many children, whom, in most cases, they cannot cater for morally, educationally and financially.” Fuji artist, Adewale Ayuba.
Really? That's news to me. There's nowhere it's written in the Qur'an? Meanwhile, Ayuba is married to Azukaego Kwentoh, an Igbo woman he married in 1989. They have 6 children.
