Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has finally explained why he has married numerous women for several weeks.
Meanwhile not too long ago, Princess Ronke Ademiluyi becomes Ooni of Ife’s fifth wife.
Keep in mind that the Ooni, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has drawn attention due to his string of marriages, particularly now that he is getting married to Princess Temitope Adesegun for the sixth time on October 24.
Ooni of Ife reveals why he choose polygamy
In September 2022, nine months after Prophetess Seyi Naomi announced on Instagram that she was divorcing the Ooni of Ife, Mariam Anako, an Ebira-born queen, became the catalyst for everything.
He married six additional women in a three-week period after welcoming Mariam. Mariam Anako and Dr. Elizabeth Akinmuda were married by the monarch in September.
He married Queen Ashley, Queen Ronke Ademiluyi, and Queen Tobi Phillips in October.
He would have married Princess Temitope Adesegun six times.
The Ooni has now explained why he married Mariam Anako and the other people as he celebrates his 48th birthday and seventh coronation anniversary.
The Ooni explained that he attempted to make some adjustments but was unsuccessful. The monarch, perhaps alluding to his choice to have concubines in addition to a single queen, said of Ile Ife’s cultural heritage.
He said, “This institution is bigger than me, beyond me. More than 800, almost 1,000 people are housed in this palace.
Some people have lived in this palace for more than 60 years, while others have lived here for more than 80 years. In this palace, some people are over 100 years old.
If I had my way, I would have challenged it, but it blew in my face, thank God. It’s a heritage, culture, and tradition-rich institution.”
In a recent development, a medical doctor from Ekiti state has applied to become the Ooni of Ife’s sixth wife. Bella Nifemi, a medical doctor, made a submission to the monarch.
If she is considered his wife, she has promised to represent Twitter and the Ekiti community well.
“This is my submission to be Ooni’s 8th wife. I’m also a Medical Doctor and I will represent Twitter and Ekiti community well”.
