The palace of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has debunked the news making the round on social media, that the new Queen, Olori Porphetess Naomi stepped on blood as part of her marriage rites.
However, the palace has given clarification on the trending photo, in a post on Facebook.

“YOURA NI ASA!!!
The new Yeyeluwa wasn’t stepping on blood but OOSUN (Cam Wood). “Iyawo Elese Oosun” ….hope you remember Ayinde Barrister’s song? There’s no where in Yoruba tradition where the bride is required to step over blood as part of a wedding rite.”
