According To Princess Adeola:
Kabiyesi didn’t meet her a long time, it was the oracle who revealed her to Kabiyesi. They never met before. The irumole are still alive and they are doing wonders.
You know a lot of things has been happening since they introduced the new Oloori to the world. Lots of people were saying evil things about her. The majority of what they said are not correct. They were just running her down. But to the glory of God, we still marry her. Is that not wonderful and marvelous.
According To Princess Folasade:
The culture in Yoruba land says you cannot marry husband alone, you marry the family. So she can not marry kabiyesi alone, she has to marry the family. It is culture. That is what we are following basically.
People talk about the dead. It is their mouth let them run it. Nkan ti oba wu eni body ni ki ofi enu e so.
According to Princess Adebimpe:
I can’t say much but Kabiyesi told us that Oracle revealed her to him and we should accept her as our wife and the day she came to meet with the family she did wonderfully well. I have to say she is well mannered and highly cultured. She is a good person and once my brother says she is okay, we are okay. Kabiyesi said we should accept her, why not.
