On Saturday, the new Ooni of Ife â€“ Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi married a new wifeâ€¦
If you noticed from the pictures of the traditional wedding festivities which went down in Benin, Edo state, one very important person was missing. The Ooni himself. Many were left wondering why he didnâ€™t attend his own wedding and we have answers to that.
Oba Ogunwusi did not attend the wedding because according to tradition a â€œking does not seek a wife. A wife is taken to himâ€œâ€¦.
Meanwhile, shortly after the marriage rites were concluded in Benin city, Edo state, the new bride was taken to Ile Ife to meet her husband, the king at his palace.
Meet the Oba & his Olori.
