It is still very fresh in the memories of many how the marriage of Ooni of Ile-Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi to Queen Zainab packed up barely one year after the marriage was contracted. But as it’s forbidden by tradition for a king to be a bachelor, Oba Ogunwusi has since set machinery in motion to ensure the former Olori is replaced, and if story reaching us is anything to go by, alleged former mistress of popular Abeokuta based fuji singer, Sefiu Alao, Emmanuela Ropo, may have been the one the king’s hook has this time gotten.
Also, the said Ooni newly found lady, Emmanuela, information has it that she was married to a few men and has children the course.
It will be recalled the immediate past Olori of Oba Adeyeye, Zainab Etiti, had equally married some two men before she married the respected and revered king.
Emmanuela, who was recently spotted at a social function with the Ooni, was allegedly was introduced to the king by a popular business woman cum socialite who is very close to the three sisters of the king. The men she was alleged to have previously been married to at different times with children to show for the unions are said to be one oil dealer, Joshua and Femi. It is in the same vein she was alleged to have an affair with popular Fuji singer, Shefiu Alao and a top customs officer, who was identified as Toye.
Meanwhile, sources in the know who revealed the rich and handsome youthful monarch seems to be very much in love with his new found lover is likely not to waste time in formalizing the said relationship, even though some of those who are close to him are said not to be comfortable with his choice of Emmanuella Ropo, due to her antecedents that are believed not to be so impressive.
