New reports have it that the Ooni of Ife is allegedly set to take a new wife after breaking up with his former queen, Olori Wuraola, sometime ago
According to sources close to Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, the King is in a very serious relationship with Tobi Phillips, a 27-year-old top model and former World Miss University Nigeria.
“The two began dating last year shortly after the Oba separated from his wife, Olori Wuraola, who he has since divorced. We hear there’s a lot of pressure on the Ooni, who is just 43, to take another wife and sire his heirs, being the most important Oba in Yorubaland.” the source said.
Recall that Olori Wuraola took to her Instagram to announce the end of her marriage to the Ooni after messy rumour reports. While she didn’t explicitly tell the details behind their break up, she condemned the culture that blames the woman when relationships fail.
She later addressed the her break up with the Ooni of Ife
“We have got to stop this culture of shaming and vilifying women with false stories of infidelity & nefarious behavior. The spreading of false information (through “sources” afraid to be identified) is the mark of cowards and a cover up for guilty parties to justify their horrific actions. There is absolutely no truth to the media circulated lies of infidelity and infertility- on my end.
“We’ve seen this movie before. Women being dragged in the press & blamed for everything under the sun. This behavior is unacceptable. I urge those involved to be mindful of their actions for the eyes of our Almighty God are always watching. The seeds of slander is a cancer that harvests to eat away the souls of the planter.
“The throne is sacred and the attempts to tarnish the name of a Queen, in defense or on behalf of a silent King makes all involved look terrible. Remain dignified in all you do. It’s not the end of the world, but the start of a new chapter and you must turn the page with grace. The world is watching.
“As I bid adieu to this chapter, my wish to you all is to step into your lives – boldly & fearlessly, the way God intended and live not just by words, but through example. The best chapter in our lives is the one we are writing now. Thank you for your love and support.
