The highly revered Nigerian Monarch, the Ooni of Ife, is marrying his wife today in Edo state in what is set to bring the city to a standstill.

His Imperial Majesty, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi is set to 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.

The high profile event is being attended by first class kings, political juggernauts, business titans and high-octane socialites from near and far.

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. The Ooni and Wuraola have been in 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 his Olori (queen).

It should be noted that 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. Obas, generally, are not restricted to one wife.
