Feminist asks Ooni of Ife to be a good example
Meanwhile, author and feminist, Kachi Ohiaeri, has said if the claims that the Ooni of Ife has a lot of concubines in his palace who have children for him is true, it is an eyesore.
Ohiaeri wrote on her Facebook page:
“An Ooni is entitled to polygamy but I see it as an eyesore for him to be accused of gathering a harem of women without marrying them.
“That is a reckless behavior unbecoming of a monarch! A monarch is supposed to be an example and a custodian of culture.
“With what he is alleged to have done, it means that the average Yoruba man can be impregnating women and it’s allowed. No one will demand of him to get married.
“Ooni and his wives use the gram too much for royalty! Everything is expressed on Instagram and I see it a tad too classless.
“His wives keep running away and leaving the palace one too many times. Well, I think he should be embarrassed by now.”
