In an interview in 2013, Adebayo Salami was asked about the number of his wives:
Please let’s leave the number of wives. I don’t want to talk about that. I met my first wife in secondary school and I met the second through my younger sister. – the actor replied.
It is not easy to run a polygamous house, and it is only by God’s grace one can do that. It cannot be applicable to everybody. The best marriage is that of one man and a wife, but if any of my children’s destiny is to have more than a wife, then there is nothing I can do about it. I believe I am destined to be a polygamous person. – Adebayo Salami said about his polygamous marriage.
The rumors about several wives was fueled because the actor has 18 children. According to an interview published on naijagists.com, Adebayo Salami doesn’t hide that he had some relationships with women and the stardom played a big role in his fatherhood.
