Following the recent and shocking seperation from his wife, former Queen Wuraola, it would seem that the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, may have found love again. According to findings, it would seem the new love interest, whose name is Emmanuella Ropo, has a past that is now haunting her possible future as Queen. Emmanuella recently stepped out with the Ooni to attend a high-society wedding in Lagos.
According to NewsmakersNG, it was learnt that Emmanuella has been married twice with children. Her first marriage to a Joshua Adewale, an oil dealer, produced two female children, then she was hooked to one Femi and had her third child – a boy. She had allegedly been spotted with a popular Abeokuta-based Fuji musician, Alhaji Sefiu Alao Adekunle aka Omo Oko, as well as a senior customs officer and one Engr. Toye, who is allegedly a friend of the Ooni. Emmanuella, who hails from Abeokuta, Ogun State, has just ended her heated love affair with Femi, who had moved into her house at Anthony Enahoro Estate in Ogba, Ikeja. It was also learnt that one of Ooni’s sisters, Adesola aka Yeye Two, is not comfortable with the unfolding relationship.
According to NewsmakersNG, a source said that Emmanuella and Oba Ogunwusi had been seeing each other before the crash of Ooni’s marriage. Another source said that the romance became public after the marriage crashed in August, and scouts went all out looking for another Queen for the King. One of the scouts, close to Ooni’s family, is an Apapa-Lagos-based socialite and business tycoon and Emmanuella is one of the ladies she has groomed in her circle. It was reported that she allegedly introduced Emmanuella to Oba Ogunwusi, and they took to each other like duck to water. But not all in the Ooni’s circle agrees with the budding romance.
