Oba Ogunwusi previously suffered a marital breakdown in 2017 when he split from Edo-born Zaynab Otiti-Obanor, whom he married as a monarch on March 16, 2016. Obanor’s marriage to the king lasted only 17 months.
He later married Silekunola in 2018 and the marriage produced a son, Tadenikawo.
The 47-year-old monarch also had a daughter with Omolara Olatubosun as a teenager. Olatubosun gave birth to Princess Adeola Ogunwusi but of recent, there have been counter-claims between the Ooni and Olatubosun over who was responsible for the upbringing of their daughter.
