Ssaalongo Nsikonenne Habib Ssezzigu, a businessman from Uganda, married seven wives on the same day.
On September 10, 2023, a wedding ceremony was place in Bugereka Village, Mukono District.
He married seven wives, two of them are his biological sisters.
The event began at around 8 a.m., when the ladies were driven to nearby salons for styling before being put in waiting Super Custom vans with personalized license plates showing each bride’s name.
After exchanging vows, Nsikonnene and his seven wives staged a large parade through the towns of Kalagi, Kasana, and Nakifuma, which was led by boda boda cyclists, before making their way to their home at 6 o’clock in the evening.
As the couples traveled in a convoy while being applauded by onlookers who had gathered along the route to observe the ritual, a concert marked the beginning of the wedding ceremony.
Some others had trouble believing it was real, while others claimed it was their first time seeing such a thing.
Mariam, Madinah, Aisha, Zainabu, Fatuma, Rashida, and Musanyusa, who has been Habib’s first wife for seven years, are among the wives.
As gifts for all of his wives, Habib also purchased brand-new vehicles.
The brides arrived at the reception to find their chairs ready and marked with their names.
In his address during the reception, Nsikonnene thanked his wives for their devotion to him.
He was proud to say, “My wives don’t compete with one another.”
I gave them each a special introduction before deciding to marry them all at once to create a huge, happy family.
He declared that he will be taking on more spouses in the future.
I’m still a young man, so I won’t be able to declare that this is the end of it in the near future, God willing.
Polygamy has been practiced in this family, according to the groom’s father, Hajj Abdul Ssemakula, who also mentioned that his grandpa had six women who were divided by curtains in a single home.
He claimed, “My own late father had five wives, and I have four wives of my own who live in the same home.”
Habib allegedly broke the Ugandan record for the most simultaneous marriages.
