“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.”
However, 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.”
Recall that the Ooni has 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.
The 47-year-old monarch also had a son with Omolara Olatubosun as a teenager. Olatubosun gave birth to Princess Adeola Ogunwusi but recent, there have been counter-claims between the Ooni and Olatubosun over who raised their daughter
