Despite denials, Ooni to marry fashion designer, Ronke Ademiluyi as fifth wife

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi is taking a fifth wife and surprisingly the lady in question is no other than the convener of the African Fashion Week, Ronke Ademiluyi.


The monarch and Ronke who used to run the Rukis Fashion on Opebi street, Lagos were said to be lovers a long time ago, but the woman would deny having anything amorous with the monarch.


Those in the know claimed they were both lovers, even long before the Ooni became a king, but the two have a way of hiding their affair.


Immediately it was officially announced that Enitan Ogunwusi would be the next Ooni of Ife, the Ruki boss moved to Ife where she took charge of the traditional ceremony and she fully moved into the palace after she was appointed a cultural ambassador.


A source claimed it was her relocation to Ile-Ife that killed her business as she was not able to shuttle bwetween Lagos and Ife and had to close her stores.


Ademiluyi who had a child from  a previous dalliance had been staying in the Ooni’s palace even when Olori Zainab Otiti was the queen and she is regarded in the palace as the first wife, despite her strong denials, she carries the title and wields so much influence.


The rumor mill is agog of their proposed wedding which will take place this weekend.
