As a prophetess, what the new Olori would do to Ooni and the entire Ife palace.
Despite widespread belief that royals, especially in Yoruba land are synonymous with rituals and idolatry which is against general Christians’ believe and practice, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has taken a prophetess and evangelist of the gospel of Jesus as wife, even amidst some fetish looking rituals and rites.
The Arole Oodua, recently married his third wife, Olori Moronke, less than two years after the crash of his marriage with his second wife, Olori Wuraola. The marriage solemnization has neen contracted and all rites performed according to Ile Ife palace sources.
The highly respected monarch is sure a man with taste and some soft spot for elegance as evidenced by the choice of his women. Anyone who has seen the two Oloris can attest to this.
The focus of this piece is however not about the pulchritude of the new Olori, neither is it about the 51st Ooni’s comliness. It has nothing to do with the unveiling of the Kings latest queen just a day after his 44th birthday; neither does it have to do with the age of the new Yeyeluwa who clocked twenty five recently.
Rather, this piece is about the person of the new queen, and the reasons advanced, according to sources from the cradle, by the king himself about the Olori.
The supreme Yoruba royal had written on the social media while unveiling his new wife that:
“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.
Who then is this Queen?
Sources close to the palace reveals that Olori Naomi is a born again adventist, a born Prophetess, an Evangelist and the Founder/General Overseer, GO of the Akure based EN-HERALDS, a prophetic mandate and an interdenominational ministry.
The foregoing not withstanding, we all know that the Ooni, is the Igbakeji Orisa, meaning ‘the deputy deity’, and as the controversial On Air Personality, Daddy Freeze has feared, while congratulating the couple:
“Congratulations to the couple as the prophetess gets married to the igbakeji orisa. So how many altars are there going to be in the palace now? Just asking”
And also, in the light of 2 Corinthians 6: 14, which says:
“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership can righteousness have with wickedness? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness?”,
There are two possible eventualities in the marriage – the Queen wins the whole palace for Christ as she is described as God fearing; or she joins in the worshipping of the numerous deities that the Ooni, her husband deputises, a decision which some section of the public believe she took when she ‘jumped the blood’ as part of rites to admit her into the palace.
God guide the Queen aright.
