A popular Ifa Traditionalist, Playwright, Actor and Author, Yemi Elebuibon has warned men not to attempt marrying Olori Wuraola who had just separated from Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi after their 17-month-old marriage
He made it clear that before the ex wife of Ooni marries another man, she must undergo necessary traditional cleansing process to regain normal life with the male sex.
Elebuibon said that marriage breakup is not very common among Yoruba Obas, saying: “the wife of the Oba will be asked to consult Ifa and Ifa will give directions on how she will make the necessary atonement for her cleansing. In Yoruba tradition, a woman who has been married to a king cannot lay with any other man even if the marriage breaks up. But when the right atonements have been made, there won’t be problem.
“For the woman, she might not really have a problem but for any man who sleeps with a queen or marries an ex-queen without the appropriate cleansing, the man may die prematurely, he may be struck with sickness or there might be retrogression in his life.”
He further said that if an ex-queen wants to remarry, she will have to do the cleansing with her new husband.
“Any marriage she would be going into must not be elaborate. They should go far away and avoid any flamboyant wedding.”
