Silekunola Naomi, the former wife of the Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has spoken on plans of returning to the Ife palace after the monarch took six wives.

Oba Ogunwusi made headlines last year when he took six wives in quick succession.

The former Ife queen, who recently turned 30, dashed hopes of her returning to the palace in an interview with PUNCH published on Saturday.

Her words;

“As I have been speaking to you for the past one hour, do I look like someone who can survive in the midst of six mature and strong women? No! She is but a soft, strong, gentle woman and I can’t be a square peg in a round hole,”

According to her, she is a perfectionist who is full of innocence, adding that while growing up she ward off men by going around with her family.

“I was always going in company with people, especially family members. I had older siblings and I had my mum. Every time I went out to minister or see people, you would never see me alone. It was like that and it was so difficult that people wondered, ‘Who’s going to marry her?’ Because, how are you going to approach me? You’re never going to see me alone.” She said

Naomi noted that she would talk about her experiences in the palace at a later time.

Silekunola shocked many in December 2021 when she announced her separation from Oba Ogunwusi.

Just two days to Christmas, she wrote on Instagram that she tried to make the union work but added that the Ooni’s public identity is at variance with “his true self”.
