A Nigerian chef and restaurant consultant, Ladipo Ayodeji, has revealed that he hastily married his wife in court before the Ooni of Ife will have his eyes on her.
Adedeji, nicknamed Chefdeee on Instagram, shared photos from his court wedding in Lagos on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, and wrote;
“Bcos the fear of Ooni is the beginning of wisdom. I sharply go marry my wife before the guy go see her for road.”
The revered monarch recently revealed why he decided to marry multiple wives in quick succession during the celebrations of his 48th birthday and the seventh anniversary of his coronation.
He explained that he tried to change things with his way of ruling the people of Ife, but it didn’t work.
In his words,
“This institution is bigger than me, beyond me. People in this palace are more than 800, they are close to a thousand. There are some people who have been living in this palace for more than 60 years, while some have lived here for more than 80 years old. Some people are over 100 years old in this palace.
If I had my way, I tried to challenge it but it blew in my face but thank God I’m still alive. It’s an institution that is rich in heritage, culture, and tradition.”
