In a funny yet a serious ceremony, Nigerian Afrobeats sensation Harrysong has taken the internet by storm after marrying an unprecedented 30 women in a single day, surpassing the legendary Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s record of 27 wives in 1978.
The event, captured in a visually striking video, shows Harrysong surrounded by a congregation of women, all adorned in traditional Nigerian attire—a clear indication of the newly minted brides.
When questioned about the motive behind this unconventional move, Harrysong cryptically responded, “Watch out for the video in the coming days.”

In a brief statement, the Afrobeat sensation remarked, “I wanted to create something unique, challenge norms, and start conversations about modern relationships.”
