Salih’s gift to his four wives – a house each

COMEDIAN-turned-radio DJ Salih Yaacob who will marry a fourth wife after Hari Raya is planning to present her with a house as a wedding gift.

He plans to buy one for each of his present wives, too, reported Metro Ahad.

The 50-year-old multi-talented artiste said the houses were special gifts for their sacrifices, especially his first three wives.

They were his token of appreciation for staying with him in a polygamous marriage.

“Though polygamy is often viewed negatively, it has not demoralised my wives,” he said.

Salih married his first wife Norizah Mamat in 1989 and they have four children. In 1993, he took Norraha Hamat as his second wife and they have six children and in 2007, he married Norfara Wahida Sulaiman and has a child with her.

His latest, identified only as Emi, is a 24-year-old student.

Salih said he planned to buy the houses in the Klang Valley. His three wives are living in Kampung Pandan.

“I prefer all of them, including the fourth one, to live near each other so that it will be easier for me to take care of them and to be with them.”
