The Palace of Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has debunked the news that he is set to remarry.
After the monarch’s failed marriage with Olori Wuraola, speculations have been rife on the king’s next wife, and of late, he has been linked to Temitope Adesegun, the co-convener of Hope Alive.
Reacting to the news, Prince Jide Fadairo, the CEO of House of Oduduwa Foundation and husband of Princess Folasade, the monarch’s eldest sister, said that was a fairy tale gone too far.
“Ooni’s marriage cannot be done secretly, it involves not only the Royal family, it involves Yoruba custom and a lot of elders and our tradition are to be taken into cognisance. Please dismiss the story, it is another fake news.”
Fadairo said the monarch is preoccupied with the renaissance of Yoruba culture and promotion of the race’s customs and traditions globally.
According to him, Ogunwusi will not rush into taking a new wife.
“That’s not on His Imperial Majesty’s mind. Marriage is not something he wants to do right away,” said Fadairo, husband of the monarch’s sister.
“Many names have been bandied around but I can tell you they are all false, just like this case.”
