I Can’t Return To The Palace With Ooni’s Six Wives – Queen Naomi
The former wife of the Ooni of Ife, Prophetess Silekunola Naomi Ogunwusi, has ruled out any possibility of reconciling with the monarch and returning to the palace.
Recall that on Thursday, December 23, Naomi took to her social media handles to announce her break-up with Oba Ogunwusi.
”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. 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”, she said
In September 2022, the monarch began picking new wives and has so far picked six women as wives.
In a recent interview with Punch, Naomi who is the mother of the crowned prince, Tadenikawo, ruled out going back to the palace. She said that the monarch now has six strong women in the palace and believes she is too soft to cope there.
Naomi who recently turned 30 said her experience in the palace was bittersweet and that she will share the story when God gives her permission to share.
She said she has no regrets about her failed marriage but has taken all the lessons as they have shaped her.
On her current relationship status, Naomi says she is single and a ‘’bride waiting to be dressed”.
Read excerpts from her interview below;
Yes, I think even the devil knows that it’s true it got a punch right in the face. You know the devil is actually not a person as we look at it. The devil is a bunch of evils and when you are hit in a way that; imagine somebody shoots at you but you have a bulletproof vest on. Having a bulletproof vest doesn’t mean you won’t have your back on the ground due to the impact of the hit, but you’re going to bounce right back up, and the shooter will be wondering how did this person rise again. That’s what I meant when I said that. You know when you stand up and see your shooter, what do you do? You shoot right back.
I’ll speak briefly. There are certain things that happen in your life that are extremely private; they happen behind the camera. Because of the way my life has been out there for a couple of years, people assume that they know everything going on with me. But that’s a lie; you only know what we put out there. It’s alright even for men to cry. And you know, somehow, people know that it was a big hit when I announced my divorce, because it was breaking news all over the place. And the devil must have thought that it would be the end, but look at me. I am still here right up in the devil’s face. As I said, the devil is not a personality; the devil is a bunch of evils. It is huge for someone who is not even up to 30. Because I have a ministry and all, it is giving me fuel in my lamp and it keeps me going.
