Queen Naomi Silekunola has officially divorced the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II. T
The now ex-queen of Ile-Ife made this known on Thursday morning.
Majesty Queen Silekunola Naomi on Thursday has announced her divorce from the Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi Ojaja II.
Naomi stated that she is no longer a slave to her thoughts of perfection. Naomi also disclosed her decision was not because of the King’s decision to marry another queen.
She added her marriage to the monarch was not an arranged one and debunked the rumours of her having a daughter before the boy, Tadenikawo, which she welcomed with the Ooni of Ife.
In a Facebook post, Naomi expressed
“I bless the Lord almighty for His faithfulness in the last 3years 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.”
According to reports, the divorce was as a result of a certain discovery by the Ooni on how Olori Naomi came to be his wife two years ago.
The fresh discovery was said to have disrupted the peace of the revered monarch. And when challenged, rather than making a solid defence, she was said to have angrily packed some of her things and moved back to Akure.
Olori had visited the Palace as a prophetess to inform the monarch that she had a revelation for him. When she was granted the audience, Naomi, who also came with a gift for the then divorced Ooni, told the monarch that God revealed to her that she would be his next wife.
A very surprised Ooni, during a follow-up interaction, was said to have queried the young pretty lady about her relationship status, to which she claimed not to be attached to any man. She was said to have told Ooni that she’s been more focused on her evangelical ministry and not really interested in building any hedonistic relationship with any man until the revelation. Ooni received her message but with some reservations. He was said to have sent some of his trusted men to run a discreet investigation to dig into her past and present with the result coming out encouraging.
This was said to have convinced Ooni, who was already swooned by the Olori’s ravishing beauty and gift as a prophetess.
They got married two months after that encounter. It was the Ooni who broke the news of his new marriage on his official Twitter handle.
Sources close to the royal couple are also claiming that Olori Naomi must have felt disappointed that two years into their marriage most of her expectations have not been met. The Olori felt Ooni has allegedly reneged on his promise, before they got married, to build her a big church where she would continue her evangelical work side by side her duties as Ooni’s wife.
According to the source, contrary to her belief that the monarch is stupendously rich and could get her all her heart desires, getting to the palace, she discovered that the Ooni is not that liquid as she thought. This was alleged to have been a nagging issue between them.
It was gathered that Ooni had decided to forgive her so as not to validate the insinuation that it’s impossible for him to stick to a woman for a very long period. However, Ooni may now in look-out for another wife to join them in the palace.
Naomi and the Ooni were married for three years before they officially ended thier marriage on Thursday
