She always promised herself that she will marry for love, hence, why she accepted to be the King’s third wife.
Olori Tobi added that she saw some values in the monarch, which she has always wanted her future husband to have.
“Someone called me one day and said, “Do you want to get married? And he asked if I wanted to get married to the Ooni.
He introduced me to the Ooni. At first, I didn’t take it seriously because I was like, ‘what’s going on’.
Then we met and started dating, but there was so many interference and we didn’t get married. That was quite devastating.
I always promised myself that I will marry someone that I love. There are values that I love in a man and the Ooni has that”.
