Prophetess Naomi Silekunola, the wife of the Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi; (Ọjájá II), has announced that she should no longer be addressed as the Queen of Ile-Ife but as the Queen of the people.
Naomi, in a statement on her social media pages, said, “I bless the Lord almighty for His faithfulness in the last theee 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.
