The traditional wedding is expected to kick off at noon at the Edo Hotel, Okada Drive, GRA Benin City, Edo State. A thanksgiving ceremony of the traditional union will hold tomorrow at the Royal Court of Ife, Aafin, Enuwa Square in Ile-Ife, Osun State.
The choice of Benin for the first part of the wedding is because the new Olori has Benin roots and is also from Ile-Ife.
The Ooni was said to have been smitten by the simple nature of ravishingly pretty Wuraola, who is a cousin to Jennifer Obayuwana, Polo boss daughter. Jennifer was one of those who first announced the marriage on her Instagram page. Ooni and Wuraola have been on courtship for a while.
Breaking News International reports that the wedding is considered strategic and imperative as it’s strictly against the tradition for a king to live in the palace without the olori (queen).
Oba Enitan Ogunwusi is a young monarch in his early 40s and stupendously rich. Tradition supports this marriage and there is likelihood of the Ooni marrying more as he progresses in his reign. It should be noted that Obas, generally, are not restricted to one wife
