The Spokesperson for the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Moses Olafare, on Monday, said he was not unaware of upcoming wedding of his principal.
Olafare, however, declared he had no clearance yet to comment on the issue, but may speak if necessary.
Oba Ogunwusi had on September 6, 2022, welcomed into the palace, a new wife, Mariam Anako, with whom the royal father attended the last Olojo Festival.
Shortly after Mariam was unveiled as Ooni’s new wife, some other women had also been linked to the royal father as awaiting queens.
An invite had recently surfaced on the internet of an upcoming wedding ceremony between Ashley Adegoke and Ooni Ogunwusi, coming up on Friday, October14, 2022 in Ile-Ife, Osun State.Also, another invite was observed going viral on the internet, purporting Oba Ogunwusi, getting married to an ex-beauty queen.
Olafare had all the while, refrained from commenting on information on the social media regarding upcoming weddings of Oba Ogunwusi.
But when contacted on Monday for confirmation of the two upcoming wedding ceremonies that Ooni had been linked to, Olafare simply said, “I am not unaware of information about weddings, but I don’t have formal clearance to comment yet.
“I am aware of certain activities going on, but I have not been officially cleared to comment. I also see those things on the social media. At the appropriate time, we will comment, especially if need arises for that.”
