It isn't illegal to marry more than one wife in Igbo customs

Paul Okoye (not singer), in a conversation with Legit.ng said being married to more than one wife isn’t illegal Igbo custom and tradition.

According to Paul:

"Before the advent of Christianity, polygamy was a norm. Monogamy became a thing when Christianity surfaced. But personally I think if you get married the Christian way, then you should respect the codes associated with it, which includes strict adherence to monogamy."

Speaking on why Yul failed to inform his dad Pete on his second marriage, Paul said:

"Naturally a son should tell his father he wants to take a wife, or a second wife in this case. Because traditionally your father is suppose to follow you to your prospective in laws house for the first introduction which we call iju ese. But I think it’s more of an obligation than a compulsory kind of thing. I don’t think there are any repercussions if you don’t inform your father. After all, some people are not in good terms with their father and won’t even bother informing him. In this case of Yul, It’s very much possible Pete didn’t know before the whole thing. I can’t think of any repercussions for that."
