Olori Tobi Philips, the Ooni of Ife’s third wife, has explained why she agreed to become the monarch’s third wife.
On Sunday, October 9, 2022, Olori Tobi Philips, the third wife of Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife, was wed in a lovely ceremony.
Olori Tobi Philips discussed her decision to wed the monarch in an interview with TVC and said;
“Someone asked me whether I wanted to be married when they phoned me one day. He then enquired as to my desire to wed the Ooni.
“He gave me the Ooni’s name. I first didn’t take it seriously since I was confused about what was happening.
We later met and began dating, but due to several complications, we were unable to consummate our union. That was really damaging.
“I’ve always vowed to get married to the person I love. I subsequently consented to marry the Ooni because of several qualities that I adore in a guy.
