How Ifa Oracle Chose Ooni of Ife’s New Wife
Since the news of Ooni of Ife’s new marriage to Oloori Wuraola broke, the internet has been busy abuzz with varying news of how they met, who she was before she met the Ooni and many versions of how they met. But the people that know better, the biological sister of the Ooni of Ife Princess Adesola Olojede has revealed how her brother met his latest wife Olori Wuraola and how long their courtship was before they got married on Saturday, March 13 in Benin, Edo state. Princess said that they met Olori Wuraola just a month to their wedding which they all attended with their father. Ooni’s elder sister Princess Adesola revealed on Olori Wuraola and how they met in an interview with City People Magazine:
For how long have you known Olori Wuraola?
We only met her not quite long and I will say like a month and I will say she is going to be a good mother and a good wife to the whole Yoruba race.
Immediately you saw her, what came to your mind?
I saw her as a pleasant woman and a very accommodating one at that, a good wife that will take care of the custom and tradition of Yoruba of Ife. She is a good woman that will take care of her husband.
It obvious that Kabiyesi would have met her a long time but he just decides to introduce her to the family now?
No, Kabiyesi didn’t meet her a long time; it was the oracle who revealed her to Kabiyesi. They never met before. The irumole are still alive and they are doing wonders. You know a lot of things have been happening since they introduced the new Oloori to the world. Lots of people were saying evil things about her. The majority of what they said is not correct. They were just running her down.
But to the glory of God, we still marry her. Is that not wonderful and marvelous?
