Akon On His Multiple Wives: ‘I Don’t Know One Woman That Can Satisfy A Man’s Every Need’

Akon believes there would be far “less domestic disputes” in the United States if polygamy was legal.

The Smack That rapper shared his thoughts on procreating with multiple women to a TMZ cameraman at Los Angeles International Airport this week. The 40-year old said males are “natural breeders,” and it was intended for men to have multiple women.

Akon believes that too many people treat their dating relationships like marriage. He told TMZ:

“If America adopted that [polygamy] culture there would be less domestic disputes. The average guy in the world has a main girl and they got a side chick. And then they got a jumpoff. At the end of the day as a male we are natural breeders by nature. We can’t even escape it if we wanted to. Let’s say you put 1,000 guys on one corner and one bad chick walk past. You gon’ see 1,000 heads go, ‘Damn.’ They don’t even know why they doing it. They’re natural breeders. It’s in their genes, they can’t help it. Even if you’re walking with your girl and you’re holding her hand and you see a bad chick walk by and she lookin’ at you like, ‘Boy you better not look,’ you gonna wanna look so bad and you don’t even know why that urge is there, but you’re a natural breeder. It’s what we do. Men are put on this earth to breed and the reason why God put multiple women on this earth is for that.

When looking at reproduction, there’s always going to be more reproducing than actual reproducers themselves. There’s more to it scientifically, but as humans, women need to take more time to understand men. If they can do that I think things will work out better for us.

Marriage just solidifies a relationship between a man and a woman spiritually under God’s eyes.  So, I can be spiritually attached to her, and still be spiritually attached to [another woman], and still be spiritually attached to [yet another woman].

Now, when you’re talking about commitment, understanding, loyalty…that’s a different conversation because what happens now is that people are having relationships, boyfriend and girlfriend, and treating it like it’s actually marriage. You’re just dating. The whole purpose of dating is so you can date this one, and date this one, and date this one until you find out, ‘Okay, this is the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. Okay, now I commit to what’s called marriage.’ You find that one woman that supplies everything that you desire in a woman, of course that will be a motivation to stick with that one woman, but I don’t know no one woman that can satisfy every man’s one need. It’s impossible. Just like there’s not one man that can satisfy a woman’s every need, but women aren’t built to breed like that or mate with more than one partner. Women aren’t built that way, men are.

Akon revealed in a 2007 Blender magazine interview that he has six children with three different women. He was granted joint legal custody of two more earlier this year to bring his total number of kids to eight.

Akon, who grew up in Senegal, previously admitted to being in numerous relationships at the same time. In 2006, he told Angie Martinez that polygamy was a deep part of his belief system.

“I’m a polygamist,” he said. “I can afford to have as many wives as I can afford to have. All Africans believe in it. My dad has four wives.”
