•Ife monarch set to wed Edo native, Wuraola Obanor, soon after his marriage hit an iceberg

Many a man in love with a dimple makes the mistake of marrying the whole girl, said Stephen Leacock, late British-born Canadian writer and economist, in his famous work, Literary Lapses. Leacock’s words unarguably strike a sore point in the life of Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife. He is caught in the cozy snare of his newfound heartthrob, Wuraola Otiti Zaynab Obanor. Unlike his estranged wife, Olori Adebukola, Wuraola’s love comforts the paramount monarch of Ile Ife like a pregnant bank swelled by meadow grass to cushion the violet’s reclining head.

Now, for Wuraola, Ooni Ogunwusi is faithful in companionship and dauntless in love. To seal his love for Wuraola, Oba Ogunwusi has decided to make a decent woman of her, and plans to take her as his wife and officially recognized queen of Ile Ife kingdom. The paramount ruler decided to seek his love in Wuraola soon after his first marriage to Adebukola crashed due to irreconcilable differences. Before news of his separation from Adebukola was made public, Oba Ogunwusi excited speculations about the sanctity of his marriage when he started appearing at public events without his queen. 

According to a source very close to the King, ‘’Adebukunola never assumed the role of an Olori and never moved into the Palace. She left Ile-Ife town as soon as the coronation was over and has not returned there. She has not seen the Oba eye to eye…” Information filtering from the palace reveals that the Ooni currently very happy and smitten over his new bride. He can hardly wait to be joined in holy matrimony with Wuraola.
