The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has taken another wife.

Kemiashefonlovehaven reports exclusively that the new queen who is from Abeokuta, Ogun State is called Bolanle and has lived in the Ooni of Ife’s personal house for a while.

Olori Wuraola is from the Igun N’ Eromwon, the Benin Bronze Casters family. She is yet to have a child for the Ooni.

That the new queen Bolanle has not featured publicly with the Ooni of Ife is what cannot be ascertained. But a few palace sources are of the opinion that the monarch is taking his time before the public show of his new queen.

Bolanle, who was said to have been gotten for the monarch through his three sisters, is enjoying all the attention now that Olori Wuraola is facing challenges holding on to the marriage with the Ooni.

Sources close to the youthful Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife, say, the major battle he is being confronted with currently is featuring his new wife, Bolanle.

And those who are mounting the pressure for him to have another queen (and more) do have good grounds for doing so.

In his 40s, the tall, dark and handsome monarch has always been a hit with women on account of his smouldering good looks and deep pocket even long before he was enthroned. Women now worship the ground he treads.

A jolly good man, the pressure to get the Ooni to marry another wife is therefore predicated on the need to avoid any case of accidental discharge that might rubbish the traditional institution he represents. Though married to beautiful Olori Wuraola, the marriage is experiencing challenged and has reportedly crashed.

As of now, there are moves being made to get the respectable king to fill his multi-million naira palace with as many women as can satisfy him.

Moreover, the palace needs more princes and princesses that would be sired by the King.

But his beautiful wife is not ready to have another queen in the palace. On arrival from a trip recently, Olori Wuraola gone to the home of a former President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta to intervene and probably advise her husband not to be influenced to get another wife after all their marriage is just a year and few months old.

Though the marriage with Wuraola is reportedly facing crisis, sources close to the queen are insisting that she is still married to the Ooni and that the marriage didn’t crash.

“The stories of a crash are from Olori Wuraola’s detractors. She is still married to the Ooni. Though there could be a challenge or two which is expected of any marriage, the two are together and even have an event to attend this weekend. She is still the queen and not separated from the king who loves her dearly,” the source said.
