There are speculations that the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi is planning to pick up another wife again.
This is coming barely 48 hours after the revered Monarch married his sixth wife, Princess Temitope Adesegun.
According to reports, the monarch is set to marry a seventh wife, Aridunu.
Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi had disclosed why he had been marrying several women for weeks now.
The Ooni while marking his 48th birthday and seventh coronation anniversary, had clarified why he married Mariam Anako and the others.
The Ooni explained that he tried making some changes but he couldn’t. Maybe referring to his decision to keep to only one queen and have concubines, the monarch said of the traditional heritage of Ile Ife,
“This institution is bigger than me, beyond me. People in this palace are more than 800, they are close to a thousand. There are some people who have been living in this palace for more than 60 years, while some have lived here for more than 80 years old. Some people are over 100 years old in this palace.
If I had my way, I tried to challenge it but it blew in my face but thank God I’m still alive. It’s an institution that is rich in heritage, culture, and tradition.”
