Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has revealed his latest wife, Opeoluwa Akinmuda who will be welcomed officially into the Royal palace on Saturday, 20th May, 2023, as his sixth wife, in Ile-Ife, Osun State.
According to the Palace spokesman Moses Olafare, the marriage was held in 2022, but the bride had been out of the country;
“Though the first-class Yoruba monarch married Akinmuda in 2022, she had been abroad but would be officially welcomed to the palace on Saturday”.
Oba Adeyeye, already has five wives – Olori Tobi Phillips Ogunwusi, Olori Mariam, Princess Ashley Adegoke, Princess Ronke Ademiluyi and Olori Temitope Adesegun.
The monarch married the six women last year after Queen Naomi Silekunola, announced her separation from him on 23rd December, 2021, ending the three-year union that produced a son, Tadenikawo.
Though some Yoruba monarchs tried to intervene the reconciliation efforts were unproductive.
