Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi has taken a new wife. This is coming months after it was speculated that he would do so.
Video of the wedding ceremony was shared online by Moses Olafare, Ooni’s Director of Media and Publicity.
His new wife’s name is Olori Mariam Anako and it was learnt that the arrangements started in March.
The monarch at the time sent a high powered delegation to her family to request for her hand in marriage.
The wedding ceremony took place 10 months after Naomi Silekunola, the last wife of the monarch left him.
Prior to his coronation, the Ooni was previously married to Adebukola Bombata in 2008 but the marriage failed. After being coronated, Ooni married Edo-born Zaynab-Otiti Obanor in 2016 but the union lasted for 17 months before their separation.
Ooni then married Silekunola in 2018 and the marriage produced a son before the divorce announcement in December.
