Ooni of Ife set to marry Ondo based evangelist

by Church Times


The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi is set to marry for the third time in his lifetime.  Ooni through his twitter handle on October 18 had announced that he had found love and would be marrying Shilekunola Moronke Naomi, an evangelist cum prophetess based in Akure, Ondo State.

She is the Founder/President of EN-Herald Ministry, a prophetic and an inter-denominational ministry based in Akure, Ondo state, Nigeria.

The Ooni’s first wife was Adebukunola Ogunwusi. Their marriage collapsed due to irreconcilable differences. He later got married to Olori Wuraola Otiti on March 12, 2016. She is from Edo state. But the marriage collapsed after 17 months despite frantic efforts to save it.

Oba Ogunwusi, the 51st Ooni of Ife who has been on the throne since 2015 however announced on his twitter handle that he had found love in evangelist Naomi making the third time in a row. The Ooni made this known on the Instagram, sharing photos of his new bride Shilekunola Moronke Naomi.

He wrote: “I waited patiently upon the Almighty the King of kings, he eventually did it in the midst of many trials.
Shilekunola, Moronke, Naomi; the greatest Arsenal you can apply on this highly revered throne with many rules and regulations in the midst of undiluted tradition, heritage and culture is the “Fear Of God In You”, which is the beginning of your wisdom on this throne of Oduduwa.
You are welcome home my beautiful and adorable queen.
#OoniOfIfe #Otisese”

Some readers have started reacting. One Shalewa said, “Wow the new bride looks so much like the previous queen. Tall, fair skin, gap front teeth and H factor. Just wondering how she would combine her calling with the traditional rites that go with being ooni’s wife. Good luck!

Another reader Demola Ijabiyi says, “Naomi is a fantastic girl. Very brilliant and virtuous with the carriage of a queen in spite of her bumble background. I believe it is the Ooni that is lucky to have met her and not the other way round. I congratulate them both and wish them a successful life together”

Hmmmmm! One, People always say they wait or have waited upon God… Not knowing it is pure self will…. Oooni getting married to a prophetess? Hmmmmm!
Let us just leave them to their head- affair..

He is king.. He knows what he wants in her.. She is a prophetess…. She knows why she is saying yes!
The oooni is a traditionalist….. He might be a christian, but….. They are not a match. There will definitely #compromises..
They should leave God out of It. God doesn’t interfare in people’s head matters.. Even affairs of the heart have been hit byby the rocks…
What’s our business????
If it works…. Good luck to them.

You are already a Queen as an evangelist, prophetess,a church founded I know there is no better honour than to be a real child of God.Ooni had had failed marriages and said to himself I need a God fearing woman as a support to conquer. Make sure you are not carried away by pleasure and forget that he needs your help prayers.You have chosen a hard path pray more and conquer all his fears.
