Moses Olufare, the spokesman of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has refused to address rumours suggesting that the Osun monarch will take new wives.
The Ooni’s spokesman, in an interview with The PUNCH on Monday, revealed that he is not authorized to address the development.
It would be recalled that the Monarch on September 6, 2022, brought his new wife, Mariam Anako, into the palace.
Some other women were also linked to the royal father shortly after Mariam was revealed as Ooni’s new bride.
However, an invitation to the wedding of Ashley Adegoke and Ooni Ogunwusi, scheduled for Friday, October14, 2022, in Ile-Ife, Osun State, has lately appeared online.
Also, another invite that said Oba Ogunwusi was getting married to an ex-beauty queen went viral on the internet.
Olafare hadn’t said anything about the information on social media about Oba Ogunwusi’s upcoming weddings until now.
But when contacted on Monday for confirmation of the two upcoming wedding ceremonies that Ooni had been linked to, Olafare simply said, “I am not unaware of information about weddings, but I don’t have formal clearance to comment yet.
“I am aware of certain activities going on, but I have not been officially cleared to comment. I also see those things on the social media. At the appropriate time, we will comment, especially if need arises for that.”
