Ooni Picks Evangelist as New Wife

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, has found love again, but this time, with an Evangelist with the Seventh Day Adventist.

The paramount traditional ruler of Yorubaland announced on his 44th birthday that he now has a new wife, Shilekunola Moronke Naomi.

In his post, the monarch said, “I waited patiently upon the Almighty the Kings of kings, he eventually did it in the midst of many trials.

“Shilekunola Moronke Naomi, the greatest Arsenal you can apply on this highly revered throne with many rules and regulations in the midst of undiluted tradition, heritage and culture is the ‘Fear of God in You,’ which is the beginning of your wisdom on this throne of Oduduwa.

“You are welcome home my beautiful and adorable queen.”

Before now, the traditional ruler had been rumoured to have had a string of relationships after the exit of his former socialite wife, Olori Wuraola Zaynab Otiti-Obanor.
