The Ooni Of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi has disclosed why he married his queen, Mariam Anako.
Recall the monarch welcomed the Ebira-born queen to his Ile Ife palace in September 2022—nine months after Prophetess announced on Instagram her decision to divorce him.
Speaking at the grand reception he organised for their wedding on Sunday, in Ile Ife, Ooni eulogized his wife and went down memory lane on his initial perception of her.
According to Kemiashfonlovehaven, The king said, “Left to me, I would probably think she was one of those women. In life when you close your eyes, you want evil people to pass , but the good people will also pass at the same time. But to the glory of God I didn’t close my eyes.”
“Thank God for your life. Thank you for your patience. Thank you very much for your patience.
But you still need to have more patience just as your boss always tells you.”
“ This institution is bigger than me, beyond me. People in this palace are more than 800, they are close to a thousand. There are some people who have been living in this palace for more than 60 years, while some some have lived here for more than 80 years old. Some people are over 100 years old in this palace.
If I had my way, I tried to challenge it but it blew on my face but thank God I’m still alive. It’s an institution that is rich in heritage, culture and tradition.”
