Benin Stands Still As Ooni Of Ife Ogunwusi Weds Olori Wuraola Otiti [ Photos]

His Imperial Majesty Oba, Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi will today wed his new bride, Wuraola Otiti Zynab Obanor, an architect based in Dubai, UAE from Benin, Edo state. All roads will literally lead to Benin City today for the event.

It’s being attended by first class kings, political juggernauts, business titans and high-octane socialites from near and far. Photos below show the arrival of His Imperial Majesty’s Royal entourage in Benin for the wedding ceremony.

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.

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. BNI reports that 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.
