Prophetess Shilekunola Naomi, current wife of the Ooni of Ife, has been showered with encomiums from her husband’s elder sisters for her special birthday today.
The ooni of Ife’s sisters shared photos of the Queen on her Instagram page with the caption “Happy birthday to queen Naomi Shilekunola Ogunwusi wishing you many happy returns, may God in his infinite mercy continue to bless and protect you today and always age with grace.”
Prophetess Silekunola M. Naomi Ogunwusi, wife of Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife, who welcomed a baby boy with the monarch, in November 2020, two years after marriage, has recounted how the societal pressure made the journey to motherhood difficult for her.
Naomi spoke of the “difficult” experience she had prior to conception during her recent feature on TVC’s ‘Your View’.
Making reference to her story, the queen said conception becomes tougher for women when they are constantly reminded of their fertility struggles.
“It was like I was supposed to start popping babies almost immediately. The whole world was just looking at me,” Naomi said.
“Thank God for a supportive husband, he would always tell me not to bother. think it was something I was challenged with from the first day I got married.
