A woman identified as Laide Lanre-Badmus aka LLB who is romantically linked to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has reportedly rejected a proposal to marry the monarch.
The Ooni and Laide are said to have been really close, with many expecting that they should have been married much sooner.
According to Kemi Filiani, a close source said Laide rejected the proposal because she wasn’t willing to share him with other women.
“Laide is a constant face in Ile Ife and there is no one in the palace who doesn’t know ‘Oloori Laide’. Yes, they call her Oloori in the palace and everyone thought Baba (Ooni) would marry her because he really loves her and she doesn’t joke with their affair,
But she refused. She didn’t want the mass wedding for two months to take place between September and October 2022. Not because she didn’t love him (she still does) but because she doesn’t want to share the love of her life with so many women.
Though it wasn’t Ooni’s intention to be polygamous, he couldn’t help it. He was instructed by the gods to marry many wives after Naomi left in December 2021 and he had to adhere to the instruction from the establishment.
It’s really surprising that she would reject this proposal because they were very close and she was always with him. So many things are involved in this matter and it’s between LLB and the Ooni. They are still in love with each other anyways,”
LLB was born on July 10, 1981. She has a diploma in Law from Leads City University and is a graduate of Politics and International Relations from Olabisi Onabanjo University.
She is said to have left her previous relationship due to domestic violence from her ex-husband.
This is coming after the Ooni’s marrying spree that has seen over 6 wives in a matter of months. A priest has said that the Ooni has a deadline to marry 13 wives according to tradition.
