Ooni Marriages

Everything began in September 2022, nine months after Prophetess Seyi Naomi proclaimed on Instagram that she was divorcing the Ooni of Ife, when the Ooni of Ife welcomed Mariam Anako, an Ebira-born queen, to his castle on the island of Ife.

He married six additional ladies in the following three weeks after welcoming Mariam.

Mariam Anako and Dr. Elizabeth Akinmuda were married in September by the king.

He wedded Queen Ashley, Queen Ronke Ademiluyi, and Queen Tobi Phillips in October.

Princess Temitope Adesegun is his sixth wife while another lady is on the way to take the seventh position.

The Ooni has finally explained why he wedded Mariam Anako and the other people as he celebrates his 48th birthday and seventh coronation anniversary.

  • The Ooni clarified that despite his best efforts, he was unable to make the desired changes.
  • The monarch said that the Ile Ife traditional heritage was “greater than me, beyond me,” maybe alluding to his choice to have only one queen and concubines.
  • More than 800 people—nearly a thousand—can be found inside this palace. Some residents have resided in this palace for over 60 years, while others have been residents for over 80 years.
  • There are some residents of this palace who are over 100 years old.
  • If I had my way, I would have attempted to confront it, but it would have blown in my face; thank God, I’m still alive. It’s a place with a lot of history, tradition, and culture.

A medical professional from the state of Ekiti, however, has submitted an application to be the Ooni of Ife’s next wife in a recent event.

Bella Nifemi, a medical professional, submitted a request to the ruler.

If chosen as his wife, she pledged to uphold Twitter and the Ekiti community.

“I hereby submit to be Ooni’s eighth wife. I will do a good job of representing Twitter and the Ekiti community because I am also a doctor.
