The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi will on Saturday, May 20, officially welcome his sixth wife, Opeoluwa Akinmuda into his Royal Palace in Ile-Ife, Osun State.
The palace spokesman, Moses Olafare told Channels Television on Tuesday that though the first-class Yoruba monarch married Akinmuda in 2022, she had been abroad but would be officially welcomed to the palace on Saturday.
“There is nothing like latest wife; Dr Opeoluwa Elizabeth Akinmuda has been (Ooni’s) his wife since last year. The wedding took place last year right after Olori Mariam’s,” Olafare said in a telephone interview.
“She was not based in Nigeria; she was based abroad. What is happening this weekend is thanksgiving ceremony in line with cultural tradition, a formal traditional rite that will usher her into the palace.”
