The Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi is in best of his elements at the moment. He has found love again.
The Ife Monarch is set to usher into his palace another beautiful woman.
This time, the royal father’s new love
is said to be an oil and gas executive named Mariam Anako.
This will be Ooni’s fourth official marriage. He has been single since his former wife, Prophetess Silekunola Naomi left him in December 2021.
The union produced a heir apparent, Tadenikawo.
Palace sources revealed that the family introduction has already taken place and Ooni’s new in-laws have met with him one-on-one.
The ceremony which was held on February 19, 2022, was privately done and lacked fanfare since the monarch didn’t want any preying eyes of the media.
Mariam Anako, is from the Ebira ethnic group in Kogi State. Anako works in NestOil and she is said to have got contracts from her office to the monarch.
The first marriage of the Ooni to Adebukola nee Bombata was troubled before he was installed king but they had to patch things up for the coronation.
It later crumbled; she left the palace and headed for London.
With the crash of his first marriage to Bukola in 2015 and his union with Olori Wuraola hitting the rocks in July 2017, he married Prophetess Naomi in 2018.
However, Queen Naomi on December 23, 2021, announced her divorce from the Ooni of Ife via an Instagram post.
The new queen, Mariam, is expected to move into the palace in August. Arrangements are in top gear as renovations are on-going at the vacant chalet once occupied by former Queen Naomi.
