Nigerian Man Married To 57 Women, 150 Grandchildren by tola9ja: 11:50pm On Jul 19, 2015
But don’t want any of my children to marry more than a wife – Chief Simon Odo

Chief Simon Odo alias Onuwa, a herbalist, is based in Aji village, Enugu-Ezike, Igboeze North Local Government Area, Enugu State with 150 grand children, says he will not count the number of his children until he stops procreating. Excerpts:

How do you describe yourself?
My name is Simon Odo alias Onuwa in Aji, Enugu-Ezike. My nickname is King of Satan. If you go to my cars, you will see the inscription: King of Satan.

Why do you answer King of Satan as your nickname name?

King of Satan means that I am a traditionalist. I’m not a Christian anymore. I was baptised as a Christian in 1956. And I was a mass server between 1959 and 1960 and the evil and wicked people who didn’t want me to live, poisoned me with ukwaranta (whooping cough) which I suffered for five years. Thereafter, somebody kept poison for me and I marched on it. Consequently, my right thigh (he pulls his trousers for the reporter to see the deep scar on his lap) got lacerated for five years and I was taken to another place for medicine. So I decided to embrace the traditional way of life and I survived the sickness. When the enemy wanted to terminate my life, I was still single. So I survived the king of Satan. What I don’t do is bad medicine. I don’t go near human blood at all. That’s why I married 57 wives. My grandchildren are 150 in number.

Did you say 150?
Yes, I said 150.

Did you pay bride prices before you married your 57 wives?

Ok. I’m coming. (He enters the inner room and reappears with a book containing names of his wives and children). You know our community has taboos, if you go into fornication or adultery in our place, your children will be condemned or you may go mad. Here are the names of my children and my wives. The names of my wives covered two pages of the notebook – Igbo women are there, Yoruba women are there, Awka in Anambra, every tribe is there. Now, coming to your question, I paid the bride price on the head of all my wives as tradition demands. Above that, there are some of my in-laws, I bought cars for and also built comfortable houses for them. Some of my mothers- in-law I built a bungalow for. The wife that is next to my junior wife, I dashed her mother Peugeot 406 car. I spend as from N300,000 upward whenever I’m going to marry. I don’t marry from big (rich) families. I marry from the poorest families so that I can help them. If I want to marry a woman and she tells me that she is from a well-to-do family, I won’t marry her again. I suffered a lot in this life. As you hear the story of Job in the Bible, I suffered like Job. This snuff I am taking now, I started taking it in the year 1960 when I was in Standard Three. The cough poison which the evil people inflicted me made me to drop out of school at Standard Three. I hope you know that Standard Three is not Elementary Three? Whatever I’m telling you is the truth because you came all the way from Enugu, which is a very far distance, to come and interview me and so I will not like to tell you lies.

People say that your wives live like sisters from the same mother. What’s the secret?

It’s not just that they live like sisters from the same womb but they eat from the same plate. They cook in the same pot. My wives don’t fight, they don’t quarrel. If any of them fights, I sack her without wasting time. And when I sack the person, I wouldn’t go asking for the things I spent on her head as bride price.

Has any woman left you under such circumstance?
If I sack my wife, I remarry. About seven have misbehaved and I sacked them. But if the wife I sacked should repent and beg for forgiveness, I remarry her.

How do you fend for a large family of over one hundred members?
Whatever question you want to ask me, don’t shy away from such question, and I’ll answer you. Don’t ask me indirect question. The way I take care of my large family is simple. Thankfully, those I saved their souls, helped to solve their numer

I think i read this news earlier on Vanguard or so.

I don't care what people say about this man, but he should please share to us the younger men, what formula he uses to sleep with 57 women without getting tired, or even dying in the process.

57 Wive's? Whistling with an awe of respect for this man.

You even have more women than those idiot Boko Haram people, blowing themselves up to get 7 Virgins upstairs there.

Where does he, his 57 wive's and 150 Grand kids live?he has his own village? he has multiple houses, how do the kids differentiate each other without now dating each other?how did he ask (SPIN/TOAST)the women?no, i need to see this man.

Are you saying this man has more SWAG than all these young guys? i see a lot of people writing on Nairaland, complaining of being lonely, and need a date. And here is an older man getting HITCHED without any wahala.

Oga King Of Satan abi na devil sef, VIAGRA have nothing on you, and i raise my leg in salutation.

Could this be a fulfilment of the injunction to go into the world, multiply and fill the earth?
150 is enough to make a school and i hope he has one?
