Actress Mercy Aigbe's bond with her husband Kazem Adeoti, aka Adekaz, has been strengthened by the fact that she changed her religion to Islam.
In a recent interview, the filmmaker said Adekaz had enough love to go around for her and his first wife, who kicked against their union.
She added that the decision to become a Muslim came from the love she had for her husband, and it was a voluntary one as she has always been liberal with religion.
The mum of two said no woman would endure all she faced because she chose Adekaz and would still stay if it wasn't genuine love.

A Muslim man must be just and fair to his wives
Following rumours on social media that Mercy Aigbe's husband treated his first wife unjustly to marry her as his second, a cleric, Imam Idris Oni shared the stipulated conditions for a Muslim man to take a second wife.
According to him:
"He must have fulfilled/ be fulfilling the needs (including physical, mental, moral and sexual needs) of his first wife to an appreciable level; have the mental stability required to manage two or more women; have the financial strength to provide their needs and; he must understand the meaning of trust and justice. Allah demands that he must be just, fair and kind to all of them."
Imam Oni also stated the conditions under which a Muslim man might take another wife even if he is not financially buoyant.
If he is not financially strong but has a valid reason to marry another woman, he is allowed. Among such reasons are:
"Being starved (deliberately of sexual intercourse) without a solution and after failure of all efforts to address the problem (vice versa); if the wife has a medical condition that would diminish her ability to act as a woman, procreate or serve her husband as a wife would (vice versa), if the wife desires it for her husband, proposed it to him and they all agreed to it etc."
"The first two conditions are good grounds for a woman to demand divorce because unlike the man, she is not allowed to commit polyandry. Allah knows best."
