The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has taken a new wife days after his wives caused a stir online for reportedly snubbing each other at an event.
News making rounds online have it that the Ife monarch has taken a sixth wife, identified as Queen Opeoluwa Elizabeth Akinmuda.
Although there have been no photos of the wedding circulated online, the marriage reportedly a long time ago. City People reported that an invitation was issued to family and friends of the Ooni royals for the Thanksgiving service scheduled to hold on Saturday, 20th of May, 2023.
The event will be preceded by the traditional entry of the Queen into the ancient Ife Oodua Palace of Ile-Ife this Thursday.
As of when filing this report, Ooni is yet to make an official statement on his social media pages.
A few days ago, Ooni’s wives caused a stir online when they were captured snubbing each other at an event.
The wives of the monarch had attended the unveiling of a Coffee Book titled “Ile-Ife, The Cradle of the World” in Lagos.
In a video posted online by City People TV, Ooni’s fourth and fifth wives, Olori Ashley, and Olori Ronke, were seen sitting together when his first wife, Olori Mariam, walked up to them.
Olori Mariam exchanged pleasantries with Olori Ashely, while Olori Ronke snubbed her. Her demeanour which didn’t go unnoticed has got much talking.
