Still in the news, the new Queen, Mariam Anako has been dating Oba Ogunwusi before he met Naomi in 2018.
“They have been dating for over seven years and everyone always wondered why they weren’t married all this while. But Mariam is very gentle, not the boisterous type, and a very submissive lady. Naturally, she wouldn’t argue with any of her friends, not to talk of her husband,” one of Mariam’s friends spilled.
Ooni’s bride, Mariam, is in her 30s. She is a top management executive (Administrative Manager) in Nestoil Limited; Nigeria’s largest indigenous Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Commissioning (EPCC) Company in the oil and gas sector.
Mariam is from the prominent Anako family of Kogi State. Her mother, a retired police boss, is an active politician. Mariam lost her dad at a young age and was brought up in the home of the former IGP Mohammed Dikko Abubakar who reigned as the boss of the Nigerian Police between (2012 to 2014). MD Abubakar as he is known, is the in-law of Africa’s wealthiest man – Alhaji Aliko Dangote.
