The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, has dismissed reports about the alleged crash of his marriage as mere rumours.

There have been stories circulating in the media that the 17 months old marriage of the Ooni and his wife, Olori Wuraola has crashed.

However, in an an exclusive chat with NAIJ.com, the Ooni debunked the rumours saying that he and his wife have a happy marriage.

According to the Oba’s media aide, the palace was not aware of the rumour until NAIJ.com contacted the palace for an interview.

The media aide further stated that the palace would issue a statement on the matter as soon as possible.

“There is no truth to the news, it is unimaginable. We would issue a statement on the matter soon.”


Opinion: Hollywood actor Richard Gere and former wife supermodel Cindy Crawford took out an expensive full page ad to release a similar statement dispelling rumours of troubles in their marriage in 1991. A month later they were separated and filling for divorce. While it is not a thing of joy neither does anyone wish the downfall of the Ooni’s marriage, rumours like this usually do not just emerge out of nowhere. There is no smoke without fire.
