The Story That Fails To Fizzle; Insiders Tip Ronke Ademiluyi As Ooni’s Next Wife


You can’t predict the ways of the gods…guided by many deities and oracles, one of the most powerful monarchs in Yorubaland, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi has the ears of the gods, unlike many other ceremonial Obas, the Ojaja’s words are laws, so are his ways.

Not many are oblivious of the King’s marital status, it’s considered an abomination, even an insult for a King not to have a wife.

The Ooni of Ife’s estranged wife, Olori Wuraola Otiti failed to heed the laws guiding the lands as she journeyed to the United Kingdom with her King-charming and failed to return with him, the rest of the story has become history.

What many seemed not to have known is that the Enuwa palace of the Ooni of Ife is not empty, a palace source revealed to papermacheonline that a woman is in charge, running the affairs of the palace whenever the youthful monarch is in or out.

The woman in question is no other than the boss of Rukis Clothing, Ronke Ademiluyi.

Not many can forget that her name came up after the Ooni’s coronation and the palace chiefs were sourcing a befitting queen for their King.

The clothier is claimed to be the monarch’s sweetheart, she is known amongst his closest friends as the unofficial Olori.

The story of an affair with the Ooni was denied and counter-denied, later the monarch settled for Zainab Otiti, a relationship that was plagued from the onset.

Now that the palace has no Queen, the story has resurfaced again.

Now with a new angle…Ronke has reportedly relocated from her base in Lagos to Ile Ife.

From the words of the source…’Ronke resides inside the palace, exactly where the Kabiyesi sleeps and she is popularly called Princess in a palace where she has gained serious ground. She sends the servants on errands and she is loved by all. Why do you think she is living in the palace? Why do you think they gave her the cultural ambassador? Its all a plot to keep her close to Kabiyesi…’
