Nigerian musician and internet sensation, Darlington Okoye aka Speed Darlington, has that he cannot marry only one woman.
He stated this while featuring on The Honest Bunch podcast, adding that a man is not supposed to be with one woman.
Akpi, as he is fondly called, said there is so much temptation that comes with being with one wife that he would not be able to handle.
He said humans are only forcing themselves to accept the principle of monogamy because we see ourselves as being superior to animals.
Speed Darlington claimed that the history of African society shows that it has not been known to practice monogamy.
He also said that rather than having to cheat on his wife, he would prefer to be a polygamous man with the hopes that his partner is open to the idea.

Similarly, rap star, Emeka Akumefule, better known as Blaqbonez, has said that he will settle down, but it would be a different type of marriage.
The Hip Hop act said that he does not want to be in the same room with his wife because of personal preference.
Blaqbonez stated this while appearing as a guest on The Nancy Isime Show, where he also tactfully tried shooting his shot, and said he would not mind having such arrangement with the actress if she is open to it.
The ‘Haba’ crooner said he and his wife would have separate rooms to cater to their individual differences.
He went on to cite an example of liking a dark room whereas his wife might be more inclined to prefer pink coloured room. The artiste also said he likes his bathroom to have a certain look and does not want to see things hung in different parts.
Furthermore, Blaqbonez said the separate room arrangement with his partner helps him keep up with his polygamous nature so that he will be having relations with other women without disturbing his wife.
He said; “I will marry but I will be in a different kind of marriage. I don’t want to be in the same room with my wife. You’ll have your room and I’ll have mine. First aesthetically, what if I’m a batman and I want everywhere dark and batman ish, and you are a barbie princess.
You stay in that room and I stay in this. Also, it helps for my polygamous nature, I can be doing my Ps on the low without disturbing you.”
