KanyiDaily recalls that Queen Naomi had taken to her Instagram page to announce the end of her three-year-old marriage with the Ooni on December 23, 2021.
Three days after the announcement, the monarch spoke for the first time on Saturday via his Instagram page where He advised everyone to “reach out to neighbours, especially those who haven’t had it as easy through the year”.
He said, “I join all and sundry in the joyous occasion of this particular season. As we all know it’s one of joy, celebrations and a deep reflection on what Olódùmarè has done through the year.
“As we do take time to celebrate with our families and loved ones, I implore you to reach out to your neighbours, especially those who haven’t had it as easy through the year.
“It is my prayer that you’ll continue to find strength to celebrate in joy, peace, and abounding love which is the bedrock of this special occasion.”
This comes just one year after Ooni of Ife welcomed his first son with Queen Naomi Silekunola.
