Handsome, adorable and gentle-looking paramount ruler popularly known as Ooni of Ife, is one of the youngest Obas in the history of Ile-Ife dynasty.
Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi succeeded the late Oba Okunade Sijuwade on 7th December 2015.
There have been a lot of huzz and buzz concerning the marriage of the monarch in recent years.
Quest Times has worked on a list of women who have left the monarch since his ascension as the Ooni of Ife in 2015.
Are you ready?
Let’s take a look at them:
- Adebukola Bombata
She got married to Ooni in 2008. There was speculations that Olori Adebukola’s failure to give the then prince a son raised concerns within the Ogunwusi household while other sources attributed the crisis in their marriage to a fallout between Olori Adebukola and the Ooni’s first daughter from a previous relationship, Princess Adeola.

The Ooni of Ife settled for a second wife shortly after his first marriage crashed and this stirred reactions on social media as unpopular opinion believed Zainab was the reason his first marriage failed.
However, their union was short-lived as the new Olori opted out of the marriage 17 months later. They wedded in the first half of 2016 and parted ways in August, 2017.
- Prophetess Naomi Silekunola
In 2018, the monarch tied the knot with an evangelist, who was in her mid-twenties as of then. Out of excitement, the Ooni took to social media to shower praises on his newly found rib, describing her as God-fearing and wise. Though some of the followers of the Prophetess did not deem it fit for her to marry the king for reasons best known to them but she defied all odds to continue with the marriage not until things started getting messy in the recent times.
However, both the monarch and the queen have denied speculations that they are no longer together, saying it is untrue and shouldn’t be taking seriously. But the question is, who is fooling who? We can only wait and watch as event unfolds in the coming days
