Polygamy uk dating
But I must tell you that, I achieved fame when I married my husband. How many Yoruba or English movies would say, you have featured in recent times? At that point, were you not aware that he was married? I returned to him in 1993, and since then, we have been together. But it was when I finally returned to him, in 1993 that people got to know about our relationship.
I'm happy to be living the rest of my life with Jide. I 'm happy to be married to Jide, and at the same time, I believe in myself.
How do you cope with marriage to a man that shares the same passion with you? I'm somebody that can adapt to any situation I find myself. When we are on set, we know that we got to be very serious with our job.
But at home, what we take seriously while on set, is something that amaze us. There was this guy, who was a member of the audience, and who happened to be a member of the Association of Nigerian Theatre Arts practitioners(ANTP). Now, how did the big fish(Jide Kosoko) got hooked with you?
Would you say, your husband influenced your acting career, or you influenced his? Though, I was acting before I met my husband, acting as a profession has different levels. After watching me on stage, he insisted that I must join the movie industry. But when I married my husband, I took acting as both my profession and my hobby. Also, I remember that I featured in the English movie called, “Onome”. Actually, my husband and his group came to show a film around my area in Mushin.
At that time, I did not take acting as a full time profession, because I trained as a caterer. My husband was the one that brought me to limelight. So, when he saw me during that event, he fell in love with me, and we started off from there. I was with him, till a certain period, when I had to leave him to have my twins. Then, nobody knew I was in the picture because I was playing my card neatly.
I so much believe in myself, to the point that nothing moves me, when it comes to my husband.
At what point in your career did you hit the limelight?
It was in 1995, when I played the role of Omolade in a film titled, “Omolade.” That was how I was brought to the limelight. As a wife of Jide Kosoko, I have no regret whatsoever.
She is a fantastic Yoruba and English actress of many years.
But Henrietta Kosoko, a very robust actress, married to a popular actor and president of the Association of Nigeria Theatre-Arts Practitioners (ANTP), an umbrella body of all Yoruba thespians in the country, Prince Jide Kosoko, cut her niche immediately after featuring in that popular Yoruba movie, “Omolade”, and “Onome”.
Today, a discourse on Yoruba movies cannot be said to be complete without references being made to her. It's not as if she's always at home but she's engaged in something else. You heard my husband say I had twins before I married him. Yes, several times I have been on the same set with my husband. Whatever the directors of the film that we feature in ask us to do, that we would do.
Henrietta, in this encounter, unveils the kernel of her love-life with the prince of the Yoruba sector of the movie industry. Acting seems to run in the blood of Jide Kosoko's family. So, most often, our children stay with her in her shop. I trained my children in a way that they can take care of themselves even when I'm not there. So, it's not as if I have a little baby I'm breast-feeding. Where I come from, I happened to be the only wife of my former man. But right now, I'm in a polygamous setting and I can tell you that I'm certainly not complaining. Here, nobody gives you peace except you give your self a peace of mind. At times, you go on set with your husband, what's the feeling like when you appear on the same set with your husband? There is a great difference between my husband at home, and my husband on set.
