Cameroonian singer, Reprudencia Sonkey, popularly known as Dencia, has offered her two cents on why children of the first wife are usually the most successful in polygamous homes.
In a snapChat post on Friday, Dencia explained that first wives in polygamous homes focus on the wellbeing of their children, unlike the younger wives who are more driven by jealousy and competition.
In a post via Dencia’s snapchat, she said; "In polygamous homes, the first wife’s kids always thrive, they’re usually the most successful in the end cuz every woman after that is fighting position instead of focusing on their children.
"Be the 1st wife so ur kids can thrive.
"Then the kids whose mom ain’t the 1st wife always feel secondary, then u have jealousy & h, to holding them back, it’s hard to see the 1st wife’s kids hating on their half siblings, very hard."
