Ghanian actor John Dumelo has said that his wife chided him for his comment on calling for the legalization of polygamy in Ghana.
In an Instagram post, Ghanian actor and politician John Dumelo shared his views on polygamy where he suggested that it’d be a good idea to legalize it in Ghana, justifying the statement by the fact that most Ghanian men have side chicks. He said these side chicks perform most wifely duties.
In a follow-up conversation, it turned out the statement did not boil down well with his own wife, Gifty Mawuenya. He made this known in an interview with John FM, when he said he took down the Instagram post as it was misunderstood.
Dumelo said he intended for the post to serve as a question, and not a statement from him.

” Before I shared the post, I showed it to my wife and told her I was going to post it. She was aware of it but as expected, she “dealt” with me later on at home. She showed me her typical “Ayigbe” woman side” .
