Olori Silekunola Naomi, the wife of the Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has announced her divorce from the monarch.

The queen took to her Instagram handle this morning to make the announcement.

“I shall no longer be referred to as wife to the Ooni of Ife or as Queen of Ile-Ife” as she described herself as the Queen of the people and mother of her son.

Naomi further alleged the hypocrisy of the monarch, stating that the Ooni’s public perception is different from his true character.

Her post reads, “I bless the Lord almighty for His faithfulness in the last 3 years of my marriage. In life’s journey, it isn’t how far. Still, how well, indeed though satan should buffet if trials should come, I have this blessed assurance controlling all situations and saying to me it is well with my soul. Certainly, it is well. I made my journey into the ancient throne of Ife with faith in my heart and love for the keeper of it.

“Few impressions I would love to correct. If anyone knows otherwise, they are free to come up with facts. Let it be known that this decision to move on did not come because his majesty is married to another queen. As many would love to assume, throughout our life as a couple, I was the only married wife to him. There were side attractions, but it was never an issue.

”I never approached him with any revelation of any sort, as many believed he contacted me first and made his proposal known several months later.

The marriage was not an arranged one, as many have misconstrued. I never knew the prophetess said to have introduced me to him. Instead, he introduced her to me after I agreed to marry him. I was only being polite out of respect for him.

“I have never been pregnant all my life before Tadenikawo; my son is my first ever pregnancy with medical reports to back it up. The girl who is said to be my daughter is my niece. I did my best to endure and make it work; many times, I smiled through the struggle, but I have finally realised I had just one assignment, my son, and when God is done, He is done.

“He chose Saul to be king, and when He was done, He told the prophet Samuel I have moved on. Religion was never an issue between us; please refer to my interview on News Central TV. Instead, His Majesty has a picture he would love the world to see and perceive him as and another one which is his true self.

“Today I announce the beginning of a new dawn and the close of a chapter. Today, I am a mother to God’s unique gift. I am no longer a slave to my thoughts of perfection. I, at this moment, announce that I shall no longer be referred to as wife to the Ooni of Ife or as Queen of Ile-Ife but as the Queen of the people and mother of my adorable Prince.”

“He is God’s way of saying I know about it all. In situations like this, there will be aggrieved persons. I, at this moment, appeal to all parties involved to allow the peace of God with the consciousness that there is a lovely little boy between us. I thank all of my prayer partners and loved ones. I remain committed to all of my projects, charity work and ministry. In this new season, I shall be focusing on God only,” she added.

  1. Is it that this king is not destined to live with a wife? Men and cheating
    so, the king had side attraction despite having a very beautiful wife

    • He has another queen naomi has been co-habiting it. That is not the issue at all, you see this Oba’s marriage thing, make we drink water drop cup

  2. I’m heart broken

    ”His Majesty has a picture he would love the world to see and perceive him as and another one which is his true self” This is DEEEEEEEP

  3. And I love this lady her carriage, her smile, her love for God and humanity. What is happening. Ooni should fix himself well. This is his third marriage. It is not good at all.

  4. This definitely doesn’t sound true. How can she compare herself to Saul? Saul that was removed by God Himself for disobeying the voice of the Lord? I can never believe all these stories. That’s how they said she left the first time and she brought back the Prince. Made up stories.( yinmu)

  5. The Ooni of Ife is not an ordinary Yoruba man. Neither is he an ordinary king. Stories of this sort from Ile-Ife and Iwo are not cheering thus making many to wonder if the ‘not-to-young’ syndrome will not destroy some of our traditional institutions. May peace, like a river, flow through all traumatized relationships at this moment. The image of the Yoruba could be better protected.
