He is one of the hottest and most desired Ghanaian singers, but is Samini really single as he claims?
Reggae and dancehall artist, Samini Dagati was reported a while back to have been married to two different women at the same time. But in a interview with Deloris Frimpong-Manso in 2014, he revealed that he is currently single and no longer married because both women has left him.
He revealed this on the Delay Show on Viasat1 explaining that he had married two the ladies at a young age with the perception that he was doing the honourable thing of marrying all the mothers of his children.
According to him, he felt he was doing the right thing but the ladies, after a while did not agree to the arrangement of being married to the same man and the circumstances of the marriages and decided to call it quit; so he is currently with no wife.
“I don’t have a wife. Everybody has gone their separate ways. Thanks to civilization, my former wives decided to stop the marriage’, he said.
Defending his action of marrying more than one woman, the owner of Dancestardom said, “Where I come from, it is acceptable to marry more than one woman and it was my wish to marry all the mothers of my kids and make them comfortable”
“I thought I was doing the right thing but the women felt otherwise” “Once you can take care of your wives and children, it is acceptable to marry the women as a responsible man,” he continued.
The irony of Samini’s marriage life which hit the headlines years ago was not about his marriage to two different women but how he did it.
In February 2011, Samini got married to Mercy Geker, mother of his daughter, Yelisun Samini in London when he was already engaged to Christian Aboagye Mensah, a Ghanaian-based in Canada and the mother of his daughters- Toyila Samini and Ayana Samini.
Unknown to Mercy Geker. Samini, on 10th May 2011, officially registered his marriage to Christiana Aboagye Mensah in a low profile ceremony which took place at the Registrar General’s Office in Accra. Samini currently has four kids, three girls and one boy.
So it's 2014, is Samini really still single?
