According to reports, the Ooni of Ife will unveil his sixth wife. The monarch will officially welcome his wife, Dr Opeoluwa Elizabeth Akinmuda into the Royal Palace of Oodua in Ile-Ife. This event is scheduled for Saturday 20th May 2023 and invitations have been sent out. Top dignitaries of the country are expected to grace this grand occasion.
Though the Yoruba monarch married Akinmuda in 2022 right after his wedding with Olori Mariam, she had been abroad and the event this weekend is a Thanksgiving ceremony and a formal traditional rite to usher her into her royal seat in the palace.
The Ooni is already married to five other women namely:Olori Mariam, Olori Tobi Phillips Ogunwusi, Olori Ashley Adegoke, Olori Ronke Ademiluyi and Olori Temitope Adesegun. Before his wedding to these women, he was married to Olori Naomi—a three-year union that crashed after birthing a son, Tadenikawo.
