Days after it was reported that the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi would be marrying two women before his 48th birthday this October, he has married Tobi Phillips, one of the women he was linked to.
Before his coronation in 2016, Oba Adeyeye was previously married to Adebukola Bombata in 2008, but the marriage failed after his coronation.
After being crowned, Ooni married Edo-born Zainab-Otiti Obanor in 2016, the union lasted for 17 months before their separation. He then married Naomi Silekunola in 2018.
Ooni’s new marriage is coming ten months after Queen Naomi Silekunola took to social media to announce her separation from the monarch in December 2021.
This year, he has married Olori Mariam Anako from Ebira land in Kogi State, and Olori Elizabeth Opeoluwa Ogunwusi nee Akinmuda.
At the wedding ceremony on Sunday, Tobi was seen kneeling as she received blessings from her family.
Though the Ooni wasn’t in sight, the King sent his guards, chief, and royal staff.
Tobi Phillips who won the World Miss University Africa (WMUA) in 2012, runs a popular fashion label QTP Luxury Fashion and has been a 3D artist since 2018. She is a native of Okitipupa, Ondo State, and has been with the Ooni for over six years.
