"Ooni's marriage cannot be done secretly, it involves not only the Royal family, it involves Yoruba custom and a lot of elders and our tradition are to be taken into cognisance. Please dismiss the story, it is another fake news.
"Kabiyesi will carry every Ile-Ife's sons and daughters along whenever it's time to pick another Olori (Queen)for us. Let’s always verify the facts before sharing."
