The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi has found love again.
This is coming from the details of his dalliance with the Administrative Manager of NestOil, Mariam Anako who is said to have been an item with the monarch for some time.
Those in the know claimed the Ooni has done everything possible to keep the relationship secret, judging by his past experiences with Queen Zainab and Queen Silekunola.
A source hinted that the relationship had undergone its first course, with the monarch meeting with the family of his lover in February of this year.
The indication that the Ooni was trying to settle for Mariam as his new wife was strengthened with the renovation of the quarters vacated by the last queen, Naomi, with news spreading round the Palace that a new wife is coming.
The new ‘Olori’ is most likely to move into the palace by August, the source revealed. Further checks also revealed that Mariam Anako is an indigene of Kogi State but grew up in Kwara.
The Ooni after being made king married Queen Zainab Otiti, the marriage didn’t last as she left the Ife Palace.
The Ooni later married an Akure based preacher, Queen Silekunola who bore him a son.
Their marriage for unknown reasons did not also stand the test of time as the queen was ejected from the Palace.
This proposed wedding is the third and the more reason the Youthful monarch who is regarded as a ladies man wants to protect at all cost.
