Ooni Of Ife Sets To Wed Another Wife On Saturday

All roads will lead to Benin City this Saturday, 12th March 2016 as the Ooni of Ife, H.I.M Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi and the beautiful Wuraola Otiti Obanor will hold their traditional marriage. Ooni’s wife-to-be bears the same name as his late mother Princess Margaret ‘Wuraola’ Ogunwusi. Many have been wondering if the charming first-class king ascended the throne without a wife. Let’s tell you that the 41-year-old king was married to Bukola Bombata who stepped out with him during his coronation in December 2015. Then-Prince Adeyeye Ogunwusi at 31 years old, married Bukola {nee Bombata} in 2008. They had a traditional wedding, and holy solemnization in church.

We however gathered that before then, things were not going on smoothly on the homefront with the estranged couple. Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has a child Adeola from a previous relationship. The well-loved king decided to seek his love in Wuraola soon after his first marriage to Bukola crashed due to irreconcilable differences. Before news of their separation was made public, Oba Ogunwusi shut down speculations about his marriage status when he started appearing at public events without Bukola.

The first-class king will however cease to be a bachelor from this Saturday. After his traditional wedding to Wuraola on Sunday, 13th March 2016, there will be a thanksgiving ceremony at the Royal Court of Ife, Aafin, Enuwa Square in Ile-Ife, Osun State by 12 noon. It was gathered that though the coming together of Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi and Wuraola Obanor is seen as a rather unexpected union, the lovebirds couldn’t have been happier as they are head over heels with each other.

Taking a look back at their whirlwind romance and where it all began, a source told newsmen that the Ooni of Ife met Miss Wuraola Obanor in Lagos where he lived previously and owned a thriving real estate business Essential Homes headquartered in Lekki. It was in Lagos that the Ooni and Wuraola were said to have been introduced. The source further said that: “Ooni is very happy and they get along so well. They’re having a great time together.” The source added, there are so many qualities that Ooni found in Wuraola: aside her beauty, she’s respectful, gracious, cool-headed, and homely. Friends have since said they have never seen Ooni as happy as he is with Wuraola, and her joy is evident whenever they are together!
