CorrectNG recalls Nollywood actress, Grace-Charis Bassey formerly known as Belinda Effah, has said that she can never share her man with another woman.

The movie star revealed she is a product of a polygamous home and does not want to go through the experience of being a second or third wife.

She said she does not have any problem with people in polygamous relationships, however, it does not align with her personal beliefs and principles.

Bassey said; “My private life is not anybody’s business, but when it is time (for marriage), you will hear. I am a very private person, and I don’t put my life out there. People have been pressured into marriage, and they ended up regretting it; so I owe nobody any explanation regarding my life.

“I am from a polygamous home, and it is not something I want to relive. Based on my experience, it is not something I look forward to. I don’t want to share the attention of my man with any other woman. I don’t criticise people who are married to polygamists; it is just that we all have our beliefs.”
