“OLORI Nkechi Blessing Sunday 😍 Her Royal highnesses the queen of ile ife kingdom❤️📌 #incomingbride,” she wrote.
Her request came following the Ooni’s series of marriage.
The monarch shocked many when he married seven women in a period of two months.
It all started when the Ooni of Ife welcomed an Ebira-born queen, Mariam Anako to his Ile Ife palace in September 2022—nine months after Prophetess Seyi Naomi announced on Instagram her decision to divorce him. After welcoming Mariam, he had since gone to marry six other women in a space of three weeks.
The monarch wedded Mariam Anako and Dr. Elizabeth Akinmuda in September.
In October, he married Queen Tobi Phillips, Queen Ashley, and Queen Ronke Ademiluyi.
Princess Temitope Adesegun is his sixth wife and he is set to marry a seventh wife.
While marking his 48th birthday and seventh coronation anniversary, the Ooni clarified why he married Mariam Anako and the others.
The Ooni explained that he tried making some changes but he couldn’t. Maybe referring to his decision to keep to only one queen and have concubines, the monarch said of the traditional heritage of Ile Ife, “This institution is bigger than me, beyond me. People in this palace are more than 800, they are close to a thousand.
