An 80-year old Ghanaian could have his record etched in the Guinness Book of records for having 100 children with 12 wives. The man identified as Togbui Kofi Asilenu lives in Amakrom in the Eastern Region and has for the past 40 years given birth to over 100 children with 12 women, all of who are married to him in a polygamous marriage.
A documentary of him was captured by TV3 and the man spoke at length about his potency and the fact he can still make more babies at this old age.
“If I get a lady today, I will marry her and have more children. As for men, even in old age we can still father children. I’m not impotent,” Asilenu told TV3 who spent some time with the family on Father’s Day. Unfortunately, Asilenu has lost track of his family- He’s unable to mention the name of all his children. When asked to do a roll call, he got stuck along the line in mentioning their names.
And it was thus not surprising that he proposed marriage to one of her daughters who he met in town. But for the awareness of his daughter, Asilenu would have committed incest by having amorous relationship with her own daughter, unknowingly though.
