Contrary to rumours making the rounds in most media that the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Babatunde Adeyeye Ogunwusi is planning to unveil a new Olori in person of one Emmanuella Ropo, the Boss Newspapers can authoritatively report that the revered monarch is not making any such plans, more so, as the person involved is already a mother.
The act, according to palace source, is a taboo.
According to an exclusive source "
Ooni can’t marry any woman who has ever already had a baby for other man.
The source Revealed that contrary to Ife tradition, the woman in question, Emmanuella, runs a kids related boutique and fun shop.
Investigations further revealed that whoever wants to be an Olori in Ife kingdom must be a woman with no string of motherhood in any form. Emmanuella, unfortunately is reported to be a mother, and has been in more two amorous relationships.
However, unconfirmed reports have it that she’s personally interested in having the monarch pronounce her a lover, but the Kabiesi doesn’t know her in person, and sources from Ife have said that the picture being paraded was just a privilege shot by itinerant phototakers – including that of Emmanuella at a function in Lagos months back.
TheBoss learnt that the rumour is being peddled by some of her close friends who has close relationship with her estranged lover, known simply as Femi. It was said that they actually actually orchestrated the scandal to frustrate Emmanuella’s future relationship after she allegedly jilted him.
Palace source told TheBoss during the Olojo Festival that the way things are at the moment, the monarch will unveil his Olori in no distant time,and at the appropriate time, taking into consideration that once beaten twice shy.
