PHOTOS: Ooni Of ILfe, Oba, Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi Marries New wife Wuraola Otiti Zynab Obanor


3485719_g_jpegb5568a2e9fbfe67d78600688f9dcea10His Imperial Majesty Oba, Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi marries his new bride, Wuraola Otiti Zynab Obanor, an architect based in Dubai, UAE from Benin, Edo state. All roads literally led to Benin City today for the event.

It’s being attended by first class kings, political juggernauts, business titans and high-octane socialites from near and far. Photos below show the arrival of His Imperial Majesty’s Royal entourage in Benin for the wedding ceremony.

The traditional wedding is expected to kick off at noon at the Edo Hotel, Okada Drive, GRA Benin City, Edo State. A thanksgiving ceremony of the traditional union will hold tomorrow at the Royal Court of Ife, Aafin, Enuwa Square in Ile-Ife, Osun State.

The choice of Benin for the first part of the wedding is because the new Olori has Benin roots and is also from Ile-Ife.

The Ooni was said to have been smitten by the simple nature of ravishingly pretty Wuraola, who is a cousin to Jennifer Obayuwana, Polo boss daughter. Jennifer was one of those who first announced the marriage on her Instagram page. Ooni and Wuraola have been on courtship for a while.

The wedding is considered strategic and imperative as it’s strictly against the tradition for a king to live in the palace without the olori (queen).

Oba Enitan Ogunwusi is a young monarch in his early 40s and stupendously rich. BNI reports that tradition supports this marriage and there is likelihood of the Ooni marrying more as he progresses in his reign. It should be noted that Obas, generally, are not restricted to one wife.3485720_a_jpeg14a53cac5a312f3d1ad4980fec051d42 3485722_c_jpegb64ec3ea372d1d8674886470b02116de 3485725_f_jpegc3ec80e26d4338f9d81fc822f43d1c98 3485726_h_jpeg8f96da6c00e9de63c24f7b375c75968f 3485721_b_jpeg0ffe7dcb11da9a174bea48bd356ea1ba 3485723_d_jpeg606f2d2c5cc4b1a0bcf4de5a863bea72 3485724_e_jpeg279379d2785776f98bf41476c65b79b6
