Ooni finally weds Princess Ashley
Recall that the Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi finally married his fourth wife, Princess Ashley.
This was a dream come true for Princess Ashley, who has been a long time concubine of the monarch.
From the day of her wedding, Ashely ceased to be a princess, as she takes up the title of a Queen.
The royal wedding held in Ile Ife, with many dignitaries in attendance.
The king’s family members moved to the late Prince Adeniyi Adegoke’s family house situated on Olubose Street, along Ede road, the ancient city of Ile Ife. The kingdom was agog with fanfare.
Just like the wedding of Queen Tobi Phillips, the Ooni was nowhere in sight at the wedding ceremony. His chiefs, the royal guards and the royal staff were there to represent him.
