Anthony Olanrewaju Awotoye, better known as Tony Tetuila, has pledged not to marry more than one wife because of the experience he had as a child.
According to the one-time hit-maker, his decision to remain faithful to his wife and kids is due to the treatment he got as a child who grew up in a polygamous home.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Tetuila said,
“due to my experience while growing up, I can’t marry two wives or have a baby mama.
If one is not careful with women, one will run into trouble. Marrying two wives means trouble.
Although men cannot do without them, women are hard to manage. The moment you sleep with a woman, you’ve lost your respect too.
“I grew up in a polygamous home and the fact that I am alive today is by the grace of God.
I was poisoned while I was little and I developed complications in my legs afterwards.”
Tetuila’s 16-year-marriage is blessed with three kids – two boys and a girl.
“I see all my children venturing into entertainment because there are strong signs already. I have a good dancer in my house and a lovely vocalist,” he said.
Formerly a member of The Remedies (along with Eedris Abdulkareem and Eddy Montana), he split with the group and has been successful as a solo artist.
In 2014, Tony Tetuila ran for political office in the House of Assembly of Kwara state as a candidate for the All Progressives Congress party.
