It was no doubt the hottest gist in town which generated lots of positive and negative remarks in the society. Months after the Ooni’s noble action, he has continued to thank God for His guidance over the decision made which he said was never regretted. At a public function in Lagos, Ooni Ogunwusi was full of praise for his 6 wives. He spoke volumes of how marrying them has helped him on the throne.
