Renowned female talking drummer, Aralola Apeke Olumuyiwa better known as Ara revealed she has been
celibate for 2 years and will remain that way till she finds a good man to marry. She said, ”I have abstained from sex for 2 years because I am waiting for my real husband to come.”
When asked if her closeness with the Ooni of Ife was what led to his marriage breakup, she said: ” there is no way I could have been linked to Ooni of Ife’s marriage crash. The Ooni of Ife had asked me to come over to Ife months before their separation.
I have been in Ife for 8 months although not in the palace. He called me to join him in all the tour and travel activities to showcase our culture and it was on that note, he made me the cultural ambassador.”
