Tony Tetuila has stated his refusal to catch the infection of “babymama syndrome” on entertainer in this generation. He also described his belief as monogamous, when it comes to marriage.
The recent rate at which young entertainers are polygamous, as well as comfortable with having babies outside marriage is alarming. The ‘foreign culture of babymama’ is now appallingly common that it’s even being celebrated most especially in the entertainment industry, almost every guy has 1, 2 or more babymamas.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Tetuila said, “due to my experience while growing up, I can’t marry two wives or have a baby mama. If one is not careful with women, one will run into trouble. Marrying two wives means trouble. Although men cannot do without them, women are hard to manage. The moment you sleep with a woman, you’ve lost your respect too. “I grew up in a polygamous home and the fact that I am alive today is by the grace of God. I was poisoned while I was little and I developed complications in my legs afterwards.”
Tetuila’s 16-year-marriage is blessed with three kids – two boys and a girl. “I see all my children venturing into entertainment because there are strong signs already. I have a good dancer in my house and a lovely vocalist,” he said. Formerly a member of The Remedies (along with Eedris Abdulkareem and Eddy Montana), he split with the group and has been successful as a solo artist. In 2014, Tony Tetuila ran for political office in the House of Assembly of Kwara state as a candidate for the All Progressives Congress party.
