The monarch of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, and his beautiful wife, Olori Silekunola Naomi Ogunwusi have called it quit.
The royal couple who got married in October 2018 and welcomed their son, Prince Tadenikawo Adesoji Aderemi Eri-Ifeoluwasimi on November 18, 2020, have decided to go their separate ways after 3 years of marriage.
The Olori who is fondly known as Prophetess in a lengthy post via her Instagram page announced their divorce.
She set the record straight on news making rounds that she had a daughter before marrying the monarch.
Refuting the claims, she stated that she has never been pregnant before meeting the monarch and her first time of getting pregnant was when she welcomed her son, Tadenikawo.
She affirmed that there are medical reports to back up her claims.
She noted that the girl who many believe is her daughter, is only her niece.
Speaking on the divorce, sue stated that she gave her marriage her best and had to endure many things and fake smiles until she realized that she has just one assignment which was her son.
She announced that she would no longer be referred to as the wife of the Ooni of Ife or as Queen of Ile-Ife but as the Queen of the people and the mother of her adorable Prince.
She however stated that the decision to move on has nothing to do with the reports making rounds that the Ooni has taken another wife.
She declared that throughout their marriage, she was the only married wife to the Ooni though there were side attractions (mistresses).
She added that she never approached the monarch to marry her nor was the marriage an arranged one.

“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.to be cont”.

Congratulations to the King as mither and new born are currently staying in the palace.
According to our source, the Ooni of Ife has 3 wives in the palace and they want to keep it off social media as Naomi is the only one allowed to use social media as the Queen of Ooni, all other wives were warned severally to meshionu (keep shut). Queen Naomi has not been finding it east either as she battles several side chicks of the King from all angle…. All of us at GLB celebrates with the Ooni of Ife on the arrival of his new born.
