Queen Naomi Silekunola, the estranged wife of the Ooni of Ife, has somewhat reacted to the reports of the revered Yoruba monarch’s new marriage.
The former queen who announced her divorce from the monarch in December, 2021, is still yet to drop the royal surname.
A look at her Instagram page still boasts of her former title, “Official page of Her Majesty Queen Naomi Silekunola O.” The ex-queen of Ooni still retains her royal name, Queen Silekunola Ogunwusi.
Following the news of Ooni’s new marriage, it was discovered that the estranged queen has now pulled down her post announcing the divorce.
Till a few days ago, the break-up post was still up on her Instagram page.
According to Palace sources who spoke exclusively to Kemi Ashefon, Queen Naomi has been trying to get back with the Ooni.
The sources claimed that the Olori had been begging people to appease the king on her behalf.
But when she realized that the monarch had made up his mind to tie the knot with Olori Mariam, she took down the post.
The post reads,
“She must have thought it foolish to still retain the post nine months after she put it up. While she ran from pillar to post on who would appease the king to accept her back, she didn’t deem it fit to pull down the post. Now, when she knew the king had made up his mind to bring in his new queen, she pulled down the post. But this is coming late. Her feet have been swept off the palace and she cannot return there again,” palace sources revealed exclusively to Kemi Ashefon.
The ex-wife of the monarch, Olori Silekunola Naomi Ogunwusi broke up with the monarch in 2021.
In a statement released on her Instagram page, Olori Naomi announced her crashed marriage.
In a lengthy post, Olori Naomi stated that she will no longer be enslaved and will now be only addressed as her son’s mother and no longer the Ooni of Ife’s Queen.
