An Ifa Priest has reportedly revealed the reason for the Ooni of Ife’s recent spree of marriages, claiming a deadline is involved just as the Ooni is set to take a 7th wife.
Earlier reports began to circulate that the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi is set to marry seventh wife, Aridunu. The marriage is said to be slated for the 29th or October,2022.
This is coming barely 48 hours after the revered Monarch married his sixth wife, Princess Temitope Adesegun.
A YouTuber on Instagram disclosed a conversation between an Ifa priest and a friend where it was stated that the Ooni was simply following tradition and had a deadline to meet. He’s alleged to have 13 wives before the allotted time is up.
The Ooni’s palace is yet to verify or deny the claim.

If this Ooni of Ofe is Christian, what happens to him and his faith, will he be excommunicated?
I can categorically tell you its absolutely and unequivocally false.
The Ooni of Ife only married 6 wives, the rest of what is nothing but mere media propaganda.
This man is not following any tradition that says he must marry 20 wives within a specific period. He is marrying this fast to meet a ritual target. The wives are not being married for sex or children but as rituals. Those young women would soon realise this.
Excuse me☹️ rituals for what???
