    This madam must be allergic to smiling. Are they forcing her no? 🙂 *ti e ti ba. Ps: happy for his former wife. She’s free from jagbajantis

    • Idomagirl March 13, 2016 at 6:27 pm

      The thing ehn. She looks like she’s fed up already, I guess she’s just tired from all the festivities sha.

    • Bola March 13, 2016 at 6:49 pm

      Exactly what I said

    • Dolapo March 13, 2016 at 8:36 pm

      Olosho ni aafin oba? Chai!

    • Marlvina March 13, 2016 at 10:33 pm

      She was probably told not to smile. Imaging? Dry face on your wedding day. Sighs

    • Mama March 14, 2016 at 12:09 am

      If your husband refused to come and pay bride price after all the begging you begged and sent his boys to pay for him will you smile???

      If you marry e sprit and take picture with air on your wedding day, as the man nor show, will you smile???

      She’s obviously not happy with the arrangement maybe the man promised to come with his subjects yet sent them alone.

      All the same this one na life sentence she can never come out… I wish her what she wished the first wife and the real Olori.

      • ada March 14, 2016 at 2:16 am

        it is only God that understands what you have written here! na wa!

    • jade March 14, 2016 at 1:46 am

      She dey vex. Na calculation of different tins going through her head. Ive never seen any olori smile, I guess thats their trademark. She looks much older in these pics. My crazy uncle in Benin called my mom to update her. Apparently, its a big deal that oba of ife came to benin to choose his next olori. It strengthens relationship between two of the longgest, strongest monarchy

    • Wale March 14, 2016 at 9:21 am

      BNers are usually very supportive of brides, obviously majority of us are disappointed with this one-this New ooni is young and modern, lets not kid ourselves, we expected he will eventually take another wife-but not this one and certainly not like this, especially the way she was sold to the public. This was to be an actual royal wedding for the Yorubas at least one this generation can look to;the ooni has the means, he is tall handsome and intelligent. We were even denied the elaborate well planned weddings we are used to here on BN. Instead, we got a quickly planned jomo jomo wedding to an old looking divorcee with the strangest looking distasteful wedding, with pictures of an uninviting invitation and menu. It all doesn’t add up. But if he plans take a third wife, it had better be the most glam, luxurious wedding and the babe/bride better be fleek! He is only partly my King so let me face my own in Agbor…

      • Damilola March 14, 2016 at 3:12 pm

        Can you stop acting like this oani of ife is something special. Tall and handsome? Where? His new wife and him are the same in looks department. Unless, you are expecting a younger bride like Sanusi’s new wife. Most of the oba weddings are boring, dry and strenous. Its more of a routine ceremonial event than a fun one.

      • anonymous March 14, 2016 at 7:17 pm

        You took the words right out of my mouth, i was expecting drop dead gorgeous. Being older is not an offence but when i heard she was a runs girl, i thought she was too beautiful for him to say no, then this hag showed up. Yellow is not the same as beautiful. She is not a beauty and that is why i dey vex for the oba. Even old man like Okoya get better taste pass this Ooni, look at Sade Okoya after 4 kids , see her facial bone structure, beauty,this lady has double chin, she needs to lose weight and get a facelift.

    • milo March 14, 2016 at 10:27 am

      Queens don’t smile any how in public…..are u a Nigerian

    • Ayoade Adewopo March 18, 2016 at 12:35 am

      Thank you o Sultana. My sentiments exactly. And she looks too old sef! she cant compete with the ex-wife.

  • nene March 13, 2016 at 5:17 pm

    no chemistry.

  • Oga o March 13, 2016 at 5:17 pm

    Is she being forced? She doesn’t look like she’s happy to be there.

  • Pretty girl March 13, 2016 at 5:27 pm

    She looks old in all the pictures is she not happy with the wedding as a bride u are meant to be happy

    • NaijaLikita March 14, 2016 at 1:04 am

      Not all Nigerian cultures require a bride to smile. In my village, if you smile at your traditional wedding, it is seen as bad luck and a sign that you were not happy in your father’s house. Plus, not smiling wades off bad luck from the marriage

      • mememe March 14, 2016 at 12:21 pm

        Love this! What culture?

      • Abk March 15, 2016 at 1:32 am

        “Not all Nigerian cultures require a bride to smile.’ Please speak for your culture, don’t say not all brides in Nigeria are required to smile. This is the 1st time I am hearing something like this. Nigeria has way too many ethnic groups, and you cannot use your culture to partly-generalize so speak solely for your culture.

  • Tammy March 13, 2016 at 5:31 pm

    Lips of life. Lol

    • Lolo March 13, 2016 at 5:58 pm

      LMAO! As in the babe dey bazz cigga majorly.

  • Marie Antoinette March 13, 2016 at 5:44 pm

    Lol! I ain’t smiling…she’s probably sad about all these festivities happening again in the nearest future with another Oloori…

    • miini March 13, 2016 at 6:40 pm

      She is looking like ‘I know this is such a bad idea but I’m doing it anyways’ lol

    • peperempe March 13, 2016 at 7:23 pm

      So who forced her

  • Ebere March 13, 2016 at 5:57 pm

    Just be happy for them. After all, polygamy is not new to our society.It’s not like I support polygamy but he is an African king and that’s the norm here and for the wife, please free her, at least everyone has or had a past.Leave her to enjoy her new marriage even if it’s the 100th one at least she likes being a Mrs. Please, just simply be happy for them………Haba!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • justsaying March 13, 2016 at 5:59 pm

    She’s used to getting married pls dnt blame her and dnt expect her to be super duper excited, that’s her 3rd wedding……so what do you expect. Definately this must be her last bus stop ooooo awon orisa ile-ife ko gbodo allow radarada

    • swagg1 March 14, 2016 at 12:06 am

      As it is famously said,third time is a charm. wink , wink

    • mememe March 14, 2016 at 12:22 pm

  • Adekunle Shomade March 13, 2016 at 6:01 pm

    Has she been warned nt to put on a smiling face, v gone tru all her pictures, nawa oooo

  • Anon March 13, 2016 at 6:04 pm

    Pictures can tell a story. Again, oni nkan tan gbojule. Her life will change for the good, the bad and ugly. Brace yourself. Best wishes.

  • Igbochick March 13, 2016 at 6:05 pm

    According to olofofos’ this is her last busstop for marriage matter! Like someone said ti e ba loooooool!
    Congrats o! Eku Olori

  • Christian Sister March 13, 2016 at 6:11 pm

    Aww boo boo this is just the beginning. See ehn, there’ll be more wives after you, you aint gonna be the last. But hey, rejoice. Cause if the rumours are true, at least you finally settled down in a good way, as an Olori (you can’t escape this marriage sha). So smile now to the bank, and as the Queen that you are. You ain’t ever gonna have it better than this.

    • Bey March 13, 2016 at 8:28 pm

      See ehn, some women are quite happy being in a polygamous marriage, so far the man is wealthy.
      Some are even happy being happy being d mistress to rich men. They are plenty on dis island. Oga buys them a house, set them up in biz etc. some even go on to have a child for the man.
      Leave story, dis girl is not as meek as you think, dis is her 3rd marriage, she’s seen it all. I guess rite now she will just focus on being a mother with d riches she’ll have in d marriage. If other wives follow she’ll manage quite well I believe. She knows this is her last bust stop. Where else can she go. She’s tried Hausa, den oyinbo.
      I really wish her well Nways and I respect her hustle honestly. Ko easy mehnnnn.

  • Noname March 13, 2016 at 6:33 pm

    Kabiyesi iku yeye ati Olori. Olokun weds Orisha. E ku ise. Like attracts like. They gell spiritually.

  • Ebere March 13, 2016 at 6:33 pm

    But I must commend this chic ooo!!!!!!When you side chic game is tight…….Congrats though…..

  • Olayemi March 13, 2016 at 6:35 pm

    lol. You BN ppl r hilarious.

  • gem March 13, 2016 at 6:52 pm

    She’s not smiling because ancient Benin culture/tradition, the bride’s teeth shouldn’t be seen. That’s why most brides use a white handkerchief. Since she’s marrying royalty she has to uphold the custom.

  • hmmmm March 13, 2016 at 6:56 pm

    haba @Marie Antoinette .. funny sha ,but you have at least wished her a happy married life ..(first naa) with these gist I read on a blog by one lawani lady who claimed she(olori wuraola)is owing her and some other person’s and how Jennifer obayuwana is now her newly adopted sister, hmmmm omo gist plenty.. all the best ooni and olori.????.

  • Demmy March 13, 2016 at 7:08 pm

    But I’m still wondering why she is putting herself in this kind of bondage.I hope she knows she can’t opt out of this marriage anyhow.May God help and see her through this.Happy married life newest Olori!

  • Kb March 13, 2016 at 7:13 pm

    This side view though. Elderly looking.
    They deserve each other, from what I’ve heard. Happy married life sha.

  • mememe March 13, 2016 at 7:23 pm

    Daisy danjuma the great pimp!

    • Noname March 13, 2016 at 9:06 pm

      You know am well. She will take her to those night meetings now. She will be pimping oh but if you try to come near her 2nd husband she left her 1st husband for she go swerve you. Shey her niece Alero of Dino tried it and she cut her off.

  • Antonia March 13, 2016 at 7:34 pm

    Dark lips…arkSark knuckles why cant chicks love their own complexion?…
    In btwn….this one no be better arrangement it seems like one chance!! For whichever party

    • Huh March 13, 2016 at 10:38 pm

      Dark lips have nothing to do with bleaching. I don’t know if she bleached or not but dark lips are not a symptom of bleaching.

      • swagg1 March 14, 2016 at 12:22 am

        But sign of smoking cigarette. Dark as Obamas lips

      • Dark Lippped sister March 16, 2016 at 9:36 am

        Swagg1 ya very senile. You”re d one lighting the ciggarette for people with dark lips right? oloshi

  • Bey March 13, 2016 at 7:39 pm

    This ONI and his wife are not even looking like 2ppl in love.
    Is it bcos he is a king and it’s protocol not to show emotion, even the girl.
    Atleast hold hands, look into eachodas eyes from time to time, share a joke together.
    Or maybe he’s just a man dat doesn’t do PDA becos of his position.
    I wish them well and hope they have a happy marriage.
    Bcos ppl are eagerly awaiting any hiccup from this girl.

  • Agi March 13, 2016 at 7:59 pm

    Beautiful Olori

  • spark March 13, 2016 at 8:01 pm

    Something odd about these pictures…

  • Amh March 13, 2016 at 8:12 pm

    She looks old. New younger wife in 2 years. Sidrchick tmrow. His lekki babe is there and the Canada babe. Ready to share both girls are younger than you.

    • oyin March 13, 2016 at 10:04 pm

      I feel sorry for the Canada girl. After investing all her money, time and love for Yeye. Some men are wicked o. And you have a daughter o. There is God o

      • Adeanon March 14, 2016 at 8:17 am

        I don’t . Firstly she was forming alliances with 3 wicked sisters, acting like she was in charge rubbing it in Bukky’s face at the coronation. Took a bunch of razz bleached friends as her entourage and upon all she was barely acknowledged. Was coordinating stupid non events such as visit of seaman schnapps to the palace and sending it to Linda Ikeji! Got her fabric seller friend to put her on Insta Olori Bimbo! Put videos of her in the palace Which royal wife does that ?? Her behaviour at the coronation sealed her fate.
        However she as well as Bukky have dodged bullets. What would she have done with her girls ? Carried them to that fetish place ? This Wuraola she doesn’t know quite what she has signed up for. Not even sure Yeye knows what he signed up for as Ooni. May God help them both.

    • hummmm March 14, 2016 at 12:24 am

      What??? u guys are hilarious. Pls do tell.

    • mememe March 14, 2016 at 12:25 pm

      Olori wura IS the lekki babe. She was introduced to him by madame danjuma in december.

      • Amh March 15, 2016 at 3:17 am

        She’s not the lekki babe. The lekki babe used to spend weekends at the palace.

    • WTH March 15, 2016 at 12:41 am

      Looking at this ooni shows that he is not the smartest tool in the shed either. He is razz looking and nicely compliment his bleached olori .Perfect fit

  • KGEE March 13, 2016 at 8:34 pm

    Is arrange! Daisy Danjuma introduced to Ooni in January, shortly after his coronation and the babe got pregnant after few bangs. I love Ooni as a young king but I’m a bit concerned about his weird choice of olori.. I understand he must protect his connection with Daisy…

    • Oyin March 13, 2016 at 9:51 pm

      I still don’t believe this babe miraculously got pregnant for Yeye. Someone that’s not been able to impregnate his numerous side babes in the last 20 years. Mrs Danjuma ma! Au u do ham ma?

    • ade March 14, 2016 at 2:52 pm

      Yeye looks after Mrs Danjuma too every now and then after her violent husband beats her. He’s very caring

      • hummm March 15, 2016 at 12:29 am

        Iro ni, omg, this is too much to bear. BN ppl are just too much with all these endless gist.

  • Dolapo March 13, 2016 at 8:40 pm

    This will be the most entertaining Royal drama sha. Of all of yeye’s side baes, I am still uncertain why he picked this one. Eewo orisa

    It’s still my believe and I’ll take it to my grave that the CIA & FBI have nothing on 9ja story trailers….chai, daisy danjuma, arrange, first wife chillaxing somewhere, Canada babe, olori art I 3rd bus stop…. I salute una digging….if the stories are true, then he needed a wife he doesn’t love to take the heat from all his kingship demands, physically & spiritual lets be honest & maybe this side chick is the goat…sorry scape goat, sorry bride that fits the bill…y’all still hv to call her queen when una jam sha

  • Ore Rere March 13, 2016 at 9:24 pm

    This guy….sorry, this Ooni is just reeling out the disappointments….So if you are a king , you must be polygamous ?…..Ode !…… We are watching you. Ma lo ba I yawn re ni lie, ok maa Gba adekunle Kirk….Ode !

    • Yejide March 14, 2016 at 5:12 pm

      So many Naija guys are kuku polygamous before either formally or informally – and most of them are not kings #JussayinTho

  • Busybee March 13, 2016 at 9:35 pm

    Does anyone know why the Ooni sent his 1st olori (olori Bukky) away?

    • Abk March 15, 2016 at 1:40 am

      He didn’t send her away, she left. They were already separated during his coronation but she was cordial enough to attend (he probably begged her); she didn’t stay close to him or take pictures with him at the ceremony. She didn’t follow him to any event afterwards.

  • Nahum March 13, 2016 at 9:37 pm

    Ooni’s sisters, don’t they have families to cater to? Na to be all up in their brother’s koolaid? I just don’t understand why I have seen more of them than anyone else in his family. This new wife should really be strong o. I have no issues with her, I pray for her. She will need strength and wisdom in this marriage.

    • Muyi March 13, 2016 at 11:49 pm

      He his paying them salaries with some of their husbands. They don’t really have a profession or trade. That’s why

    • miriam March 14, 2016 at 12:40 am

      He betrayed his first love that have struggled with him. If he can manage the first wife before becoming king why can’t he continued managing her, God is watching ooo. Omo elebolo lafin.. Has anyone watched a yoruba film title OBA ADETOYESE? A must watch,sge

  • God is not a man March 13, 2016 at 9:53 pm

    See all you commenters, just wish her well and pass by. The way you all judge, as if , you all are saints. Let me tell you something, what is ordained has been ordained. What God has written, No man can rewrite it. God knew it was going to end like this and if you complain from now till eternity, nothing can change that. Allow her to be a queen to her King bikonu. Whether she’s happy or not is nobody’s business. How many of you married people are actually happy in their marriages? Everything in this life needs to be worked on to flourish. So allow them to “werk, werk, werk, werk, werk, werk” in *Rihanna’s voice ?

    • Boundlesslove May 3, 2016 at 10:16 am

      Judas was ordained to betray and there’s just nothing anyone could do about that. You just don’t want to be the Judas cikena.

  • Cynical March 13, 2016 at 10:00 pm

    Looking at these pictures,I just feel sorry for these two. I sincerely hope some kind of tradition can explain looking this cold and emotionless.

  • lacey March 14, 2016 at 1:27 am

    The wife of the King does not open her 32 anyhow in public. I see a very fine woman here with lovely eyes and moreover those of you saying she is old should show your faces let’s see. I am not her friend and do not know her from Adam but I am so miffed at how people can stay behind their phone or whatever medium to say ugly things about people who do not know you, who are oblivious about your existence. It is sad and wicked.!

    • Igwe March 15, 2016 at 1:44 am

      This is not about “show your face let’s see”; she is old, period. Does she look young to you? Even if she is young, she won’t be less than 35 and that is not young. In the rare case she is younger than 35; then she has a very “old look”.

  • AmokeOnileke March 14, 2016 at 4:45 am

  • Moyo March 14, 2016 at 9:59 am

    i have not enjoyed reading comments so much since the Gbemi/Olumofin saga, now this Ooni and his Olori gist are living up to the blockbuster billing. since the first Olori has left, a King does not remain without a Queen in Yoruba land. Ko si a ponle fun Oba ti o ni Olori. (You don’t respect an Oba who has no Olori). In my opinion sha he ought to have stayed with his first wife, for better for worse, those are the vows he took before God when he married her, but does my opinion count. Nah.

  • d’roks March 14, 2016 at 10:40 am

    was she made up with clay? *hazztag*justsaying

  • Tami March 14, 2016 at 11:09 am

    She’s not meant to smile most expecially on her wedding day. Just like the benin oba’s wives they are not suppose to show their teeth when there are people around that is why they use handkerchief in public place to cover their mouth.
    But the woman lip na die

  • mememe March 14, 2016 at 12:29 pm

    • Eniolorunda March 16, 2016 at 12:47 pm

      You are right, they look like troubles. One of them in the interview said “Wuraola has light skin like their mother and that TIME WILL TELL IF SHE HAS ATTRIBUTES OF THEIR MOTHER” So if she does not have the attributes of their mother, will they start world war 3 like they did with OLORI BUKKY. I pray that Wuraola put them in their place, they will have a shock of their lives once Wuraola give Kabiesi an AROLE.

Delay is dangerous, I get daisy number. Just saying. Lekki babe,jand babe,yankee babe,canada babe. Kudos to all the SSS,FBI and CIA agents in tha house.

  • Payche March 14, 2016 at 9:44 pm

    You can’t really blame her for not smiling, some traditions do not permit the ladies to smile im some stages in their traditional wedding, example: kalabari and bills community in Rivers State. By the way you can check out our handmade products on instagram: @paychedesigns
