The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, appears to have found love again after his recent separation from his Queen, Wuraola.
But the new love hoping to replace the Queen has a past that is now haunting her future.
It was learnt that Emmanuela Ropo was twice married with children and she has been in circulation for a while.
Her first marriage to one Joshua Adewale, an oil dealer, produced two children – girls, then she hooked 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, who lost his wife last December, as well as a senior customs officer whose daughter got married recently at Oniru, in Lagos, and one Engr. Toye, who is allegedly a friend of the Ooni.
Emmanuela recently stepped out with the Ooni to attend a high-society wedding in Lagos.
The source also said that one of Ooni’ssisters, Adesola, aka Yeye Two, is not comfortable with the unfolding scenario.
According to a source, Emmanuela and Oba Ogunwusi had been seeing each other before the crash of Ooni’s marriage.
Another source said that the romance was gingered after the marriage crashed in August, and scouts went all out looking for another Queen for the King.
Emmanuela is one of the ladies the scouts have groomed in their circle.
They allegedly introduced Emmanuela to Oba Ogunwusi, and they took to each other like duck to water.
But some of those in the know have started shouting: ‘Let the Buyer Beware!’
Emmanuela has, however, started clearing the cobwebs on her path.
First, she allegedly picked a fight with Femi, the live-in lover, and then sent him packing.
Femi was an Estate Agent in Abuja before he moved in with Emmanuela.
Oba Ogunwusi married his first wife, Bukola, in 2008. He divorced her and married Wuraola on March 12, 2016. The marriage lasted for 17 months.
