The groom said he did the introduction separately but decided to marry seven of them on the same day because he did not want any form of jealously that may lurk in his home if he wedded them one by one. He left many guests perplexed when he added that he has plans to bring more wives in the future.

“I introduced them separately and decided to wed them all at once to make one big happy family. I am still a young man and in the near future, God willing, I cannot say this is the end of it,” he added.
