A man who was simply identified as Nana has been found to have over 200 children with his 43 wives in the Upper East Region of Ghana.
Angel TV Morning Show (Anopa Bofo) crew led by Kofi Adomah journeyed to Tenzuku, the village that is a 13-hour drive from Accra to interview some of the children about the large family.
Although the man himself was not present, his spokesperson indicated that the estimated number of wives and kids was below the real figure.

According to him, the female children of the polygamous man are usually not counted because once they get married, they leave to be with their husbands.

Tenzuku natives reportedly everywhere
He also suggested that there is hardly any location in Ghana that an indigene of Tenzuku cannot be found, as many have travelled to different parts of the country.
The man also asserted that the entire family lives peacefully, eat from one another and serve as watchmen and women over one another’s children, despite their large number.
Also on the subject of fatherhood, famous Ghanaian musician, Okyeame Kwame, has shared some of the hard lessons he has learned from being a husband and a father to two children.
Sharing the lessons on the Father's Day edition of UpsideDown on Citi, the musician indicated that being children will always love their mothers more than the dads.
"No matter what, the children must love their mothers more than they love us. So we don't do fatherhood because of any reward. We don't care. We do it because it is the right thing to do," he said.
