Meet the Nigerian "King Solomon" who married 68 women and has 200 children


Chief Simon Odo, a herbalist from Enugu state Nigeria has just married his 68th wife, an 18-year-old girl. Simon popularly known as Africa's "King Solomon" and Odo of Enugu, revealed that he does not plan to marry another woman as he now has 57 wives and they are enough for him.

In total, Odo has been married to 68 women but 11 of them are deceased. The chief is said to keep a note book where he writes all the names of his wives and over 200 children. His children are listed according to their birth dates.


Odo said that he decided to have a large family because he was the only child of his parents. When he was 15 years old, he began to study ancient medicine and married his first wife. His latest and youngest wife, Chidinma, revealed that she will not cook or feed the large family. Odo’s 56 other wives take turns cooking meals for the family.




His 'Juju' is strong!
