Maasaba Bello who is a Nigerian Islamic Faith healer, is 84 years old and has wives ranging from 84 – 106 (he actually lost count, lol), which makes him holds a world record in both Africa and the world, having the largest Family in the world.
He has about 185 children. Rumour has it that he is still in search of more wives. They call him the numerical husband….OMG!!
He lives in the city of Bida, in Northern Nigeria, in a very large home, which has about 4 buildings and a whooping 89 rooms. A total of over 5000 family members live there which includes his nephews, nieces, in-laws and cousins. #it could be that the whole citizens of the city are his family. lol
When he was asked “why so many”? this was his answer:
“I get a revelation from God telling me any woman I’m going to marry,” he told the newspaper. “If it wasn’t from God, I wouldn’t have gone beyond two.”
Mr Bello fell in love with his first wife because she was sincere and eager to please.
His second wife, a cousin, was irresistible because she did everything he wished and nothing he didn’t.
“That alone made me love her.”
His third wife won him because she submitted to his every request.
“I saw her, I liked her. I went to her parents and asked for her hand in marriage.”
Wife No. 4 was very obedient. So was wife No. 5. Wife No. 6, the same. As were wives 7 and 8 and 9 and…
Well, by then — it was the late 1980s — things had taken off for Bello Maasaba, an Islamic faith healer in this city in Niger state. He went from a wedding every few months to one every few weeks.
All told, the 87-year-old has married 107 women, which, even in a society with a tradition of polygamy, is on the high side. The Nigerian government is not amused. Neither are Islamic authorities in the state.
Hehe, I can’t stop laughing. Bello should also take the world title for strongest man as well
