Reason Behind Marrying Multiple Women
Akon is a well-known singer. Besides his singing talent, he has always been a hot topic for discussion, all because of his polygamy thing.
He has been married to multiple women, and he finds it completely normal and has freely spoken about it.
However, with all the things he talked about, his upbringing is the first reason to marry multiple women.
In one of the interviews, he said that his father was married to five women and shared 19 children.
His mom was chosen by his dad when she was just 13 years old. The thing was, his dad’s dad and his mom’s dad was good friend, and they decided on his mother and father’s relationship.
So after his mom was chosen, his dad protected her and got married when she was 17 years old.
His dad is from Senegal, and he claimed that marrying multiple women is their culture.
He has married five women himself, and it is also said that he has other women that he has been dating besides his wives.
In a 2006 interview, he admitted him being a polygamist, which dragged him into a lot of controversy, and because of that, he stopped talking about it for a few years.
He stated that because of his statement, other people who were involved in any of his matters had been affected.
However, in a 2013 interview, he told the truth behind his polygamy.
He said that one woman could never satisfy all the needs of a man, and the same things apply to the woman.
He stated males as natural breeders and monogamy is freakish.
