A first photo of the Ooni of Ife meeting his new born prince has surfaced online.
The photo was shared by celebrity stylist, Luminee on Instagram with the caption “WELCOME PRINCE🤴… Sibe! Aiye Ope Yoo!!!
Tonight l Am So Excited….A big Congratulations my Queen @[email protected] …….To God Be the Glory Great Things He Has Done. Hearty congratulations to the entire House of Oduduwa and Olori Silekunola”
The Ooni of Ife also wrote “Today, I welcomed our prince Tadenikowo Adesoji Aderemi Eri-Ifeoluwasimi and the mother to the palace of Ile Oodua. The almighty will exalt him and divinely make him the best.”
The Ancient Ile-Ife palace announced the birth of the newborn prince on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, two years after the Arole Oduduwa and Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II married Queen Silekunola Naomi.
Though the highly revered monarch has a daughter who is in her 20s and studying abroad, his first marriage to Adebisi Adebukola nee Bombata didn’t produce any children. They were married for eight years before the marriage crashed.
His second to Queen Wuraola Otiti, which crashed after 17 months also didn’t produce any either.
With two failed marriages which didn’t produce any heir, the whole of Ile Ife is on a high tempo of rejoicing now that the new queen has made the gods happy.
