The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has married a new wife, Mariam, amid reports that his marriage to Queen Silenkunola Naomi has hit rock bottom.
The monarch’s new queen, identified as Mariam Anako-Ogunwusi, an oil and gas guru, was welcomed to his palace on Tuesday night, September 6.
Recall that Simi, the sister of Ooni of Ife’s estranged wife, Queen Naomi, hinted at the marital woes her sister experienced in her marriage to the monarch.
Recall that in December 2021, Queen Naomi announced that she has parted ways with her husband, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi better known as the Ooni of Ife.
According to her, she has tried her best to endure and make their marriage work, adding that she smiled through the struggle but now she’s done.
She also told her kinsmen not to associate her with the Ooni or Ife or call her the Queen of Ile-Ife any longer. However, the palace maintained that the royal couple are still married.
In a new development, the 29-year-old Olori took to her Instagram page on Thursday, August 29, to speak on how difficult it is for women to walk away from an abusive marriage.
Reacting to the post, her sister, Simi, said no woman deserves to experience a tiny bit of what she went through and is still going through.
She added that Queen Naomi has gone through enough and it’s time ‘to wake the sleeping dog’.
