Popular Nollywood actor, Alhaji Yinka Quadri who is presently planning to mark his 60th birthday in September has shared his reason for marrying just one wife despite being a Muslim.
He also shared how he has managed to maintain his home despite being in the spotlight.
His words, “The truth of the matter is that I have a good home. Though it is not by my power but by God Almighty. Remember I also said, I commit myself into everything I decide to do in life. I give it all my all. If you are close to me, you will understand and bear with me, because I hardly have time for anything, and from the little I have, I still have to create time for my family. I also create time to visit and stay with my kids in the U.K.”
On how he copes with the fans, “It is very important to respect both the female and male fans. The issue of female admirers will always come up and as a star, you need to treat them with respect, because without them we are nobody. And for female admirers who are also colleagues in the industry, especially the younger ones, I always talk to them, to get their priorities right, and what ever help and assistance I can render at any given time, I always do that”
On his family, “There is nothing to hide and it is not difficult at all. I am with one wife, we have been together since 1985. But before we got married, I already had a child from someone else. I had the normal wedding ceremony with the woman, but along the line we discovered, we are not compartible, we will stay together, in a week, that makes 7 days, we fight for 5 days and just be friends for 2 days, so we were not compactable and we did that for 5 to 6 years, so our parents decided it is better we go our separate ways. And since she left, I met this my wife in 1985 and we started having kids in 1989 and she is the only woman in my house.”
