Olori Naomi announces end to marriage with Ooni of Ife
Her Majesty, Olori Silekunola Naomi has announced her divorce from her three-year-old marriage to Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi Ojaja II.
In a statement posted on her verified Instagram handle and Facebook page on Thursday, she said her decision to leave has nothing to do with the fact that the Ooni of Ife is married to another queen.
According to her, she did her best to endure and make the union work, adding that many times, she smiled through the struggle, but she has finally realised she has just one assignment, her son, and when God is done, He is done.
She also added that “His Majesty has a picture he would love the world to see and perceive him as and another one which is his true self.”
The evangelist then declared, “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.”
The Ooni previously suffered a marital breakdown in 2017 when he split from Edo-born Zaynab-Otiti Obanor, whom he married as a monarch on March 16, 2016. Obanor’s marriage to the king lasted for 17 months before the separation.
He later married Silekunola in 2018 and the marriage produced a son, Tadenikawo.
