Late Ooni Of Ife's Wives Cannot Re-Marry!!

NIGERIA:

It is not only the ooni of ife,its all monarchs even ordinary royal family lineage, you've to be careful,you dnt let dem sleep wiv u anyhow, if u break up wiv dem & see new boo,lucky u...walai,1st rule my late gran mum gave me, dnt date royals in or waiting because mistake no fit go happen, na death according to wat I heard but I thought I heard d ooni married a 21yr old lady like 4yrs ago from OAU, na new king go inherit all of them,yoruba culture hard small,in as much as I admire royalties,dat 1 thing dey fear me,its actually to curb promiscuous women though.

The wives of the late‎ Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade, the Olubuse II, by tradition cannot re-marry after the demise of their husband, a palace chief has told The Nations.



The chief, who preferred to be anonymous, said the order was prescribed by the Ife tradition since the Ooni is not considered dead but to have transited to a higher realm.

Maintaining that the Ooni still lives, he said it is forbidden for wives left behind by Oba Sijuwade to re-marry.

He said: “The rules is general and applies to all Ooni that has passed on and not peculiar to the wives of Oba Sijuwade, the immediate past Ooni. There may not be a clearly defined repercussion against the tradition but it is advisable that the order is obeyed at all times and for all generations. The best that can happen to the oloris left behind by any late Ooni is for them to remain single or be inherited by the reigning Ooni.”

He added that it does not matter whether the wives are young or old, “what matters is that the tradition must be sustained in the overall interest of the society.”

The late Ooni’s wives are Oloris Morisola, Ladun, Odunayo, Adedolapo and Linda and their ages are between 40’s and 60’s.
