It is no secret that the marriage of the 51st Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, to Prophetess Morenike Naomi Oluwaseyi has failed.
On Thursday, December 23, 2021, the former queen announced her divorce from the revered monarch.
Many people were surprised by the couple’s divorce, while others were puzzled by the monarch’s recurring separations from his wives.
In this article, we will look at the women who have had romantic relationships with the monarch.
1 Adebukola Bombata
Adebukola Bombata is the Ooni of Ife’s first confirmed wife. When he ascended the throne in 2015, she was his wife. According to reports, Bombata was opposed to the Ooni’s decision to enter the race for the throne.
The couple, however, divorced shortly after Ooni’s coronation. She allegedly relocated to the United Kingdom following their divorce. They had been married for seven years when they divorced.
2 Zaynab Otiti Obanor
When the Ooni of Ife became King of one of Nigeria’s most respected kingdoms, he decided to marry again. In 2016, the king married Zaynab Otiti Obanor from the ancient city of Benin.
It wasn’t long before rumors of marital infidelity began to circulate. Obanor filed for divorce from the monarch in 2017. That same year, the divorce was finalized. It’s unclear whether they had any children together.
3 Prophetess Morenike Naomi Oluwaseyi
After Ooni’s second marriage ended in divorce in 2016, he found love again. It was in the arms of a prophetess, Morenike Naomi Oluwaseyi, this time.
In 2018, the king and his prophetess bride married. Because of her religious beliefs, their relationship raised a few eyebrows.
The couple welcomed their first child together in 2020. Surprisingly, the Queen announced in December 2021 that she was ending her barely 3-year-old marriage.
The Ooni has a first child from a previous marriage to Omolara Olatubosun. They never got married.
