Controversial musician Charly Boy has claimed he has taken a second wife despite recently celebrating his 37th wedding anniversary to ‘first’ wife, Lady D.
Charly Boy and Lady D have five children together.
According to the self-titled Area Fada, he met new wife, Ify Koko, when she called in during a radio programme about a year ago and they made things ‘permanent’ a few months ago.
The ‘weird couple’, Charly Boy and Lady D celebrated their wedding anniversary with loving words a couple in June.
Charly has said his new marriage has not and will not in any way affect his marriage to Lady D.
Charly Boy and his wife Diane
He said: “Diane is still with me, we are not divorced. We have been happily married for 38 years now and she is the chief mother of my home and all my children, and that is not changing. She goes no leave, no transfer. Every other woman I have live in their separate places. I really don’t see the big deal about it; People are over blowing the whole thing. I am an African man, and I can marry as much as I can take care of, and I don’t believe in divorce.”
On his new wife, he said: “I met her on another radio show. She was one of the callers and that was how it all started. I have known her for over a year now until we decided to make it a permanent thing few months ago.
Some body of my status needs more than one wife; I need many wives, many children and plenty of love that will do it for me.
“Koko is the 18th woman in my life right now and she is the latest. As you can see, I am looking younger because I am very happy with my new bride, who is very beautiful and supportive. I have also decided to go on air with her because she has something to bring to the table; she is an advertiser and human resource manager. I am now married to Ify Koko, a Nigerian-Ethiopian.”
Fans of the artiste, however, remain skeptical, with deeming the entire event mere publicity for Charly Boy’s new radio talk show with Ms. Koko called, Talk Junction.
