Several media rumours had it that the 17 months old marriage of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi and Queen Wuraola Zynab Ogunwusi has hit the rocks.
However, in a reaction through his Director Media and Public Affairs, Moses Olafare, the Ooni dismissed the rumour saying that he and his wife are enjoying their marriage.
According to the king’s media aide, the palace was not aware of the rumour until it was contacted for an interview.
Olafare in an interview with Ife City News, said: “ the rumors is untrue and the the palace will not make any formal reaction on it for that will only amount to a needless misdirection of energy.
“Ooni Ogunwusi is a working monarch commited to moving the African race forward especially in the areas of Cultural tourism, Youth development and women empowerment. So, he’s too busy to be responding to unfounded rumors and too focused to be distracted by some faceless practitioners of jungle journalism abusively benefiting from the opportunistic social media porosity”.
