Our dashing young Ooni planned a social coup de tat , the rumblings of which lasted only a few days before he executed his dastardly act. The hearts of many Yoruba ladies were broken on Saturday 12th March as it was splashed across the media that indeed the rumours were true!
Ooni has taken a new wife! In a traditional ceremony in Benin yesterday, the Ooni became a married man once again.
To indignation of the younger ladies, and the consternation of the older ones, our new Olori is not what could be called a blushing bride. If reports are to be believed she’s one with a racy past.
Not so much that people care about previous romantic dallyings, but worry that the influence of our new Olori’s powerful friends may have a negative impact on the royal hierarchy of Ile Ife, and may even bring the throne into disrepute.
Well, what’s done is done, and we welcome the new queen of Ile -Ife .
Congratulations to the happy couple!
