The Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, has officially married his fourth wife, Princess Ashley Adegoke.

The wedding ceremony of the monarch and Princess Ashley, who is based in the UK, was held on Friday, October 14, at the bride’s family house situated on Olubose Street, along Ede Road, IIe-Ife.

Princess Ashley would be the King’s fourth wife, as he already has three wives, whom he married within two months.

Ooni married Tobi Phillips as his third wife on Sunday, October 9, only weeks after he married Olori Mariam Anako and Olori Elizabeth Opeoluwa Ogunwusi in September.

It was gathered that the Yoruba monarch was not in attendance at his wedding ceremony to Queen Ashley yesterday but his chiefs, royal guards and royal staff of office were there to represent him.

This is however the Ooni’s seventh marriage. 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.

His marriage to Queen Silenkuola barely lasted three years as she announced her separation from him in December 2021.
