The customary wedding of the Ooni of Ife and Princess Temitope Adesegun is now taking place.
As his sixth marriage and queen, the king chose an Ijebu princess. The wedding is still going on, as photographs and videos from the extravagant occasion have found their way onto the internet.
The Ooni is not to be seen, as he has been at prior marriages, but members of the palace have invaded the location to represent the King.
