1. Her Pedigree
Naomi whose popularly ascribed name is Oluwaseyi comes from a large family. Although much is not known about her parents, it has been discovered that she has six siblings. According to our source, Naomi is reportedly from Ondo state.
2. Her Ministry
The new Olori is a Christian. But even more, she is an evangelist whose life is committed to spiritual activities. She started ministering publicly at the age of 18 and later took up the work of a full time evangelist in October 2011.
Given by the way she has spoken in tongues and ministered on several stages, the lady has been called a prophetess also.
In this light, she is the founder and president of En-Heralds which is an interdenominational ministry. The assembly is based in Akure, Ondo state.
3. Her Age
Naomi exact age is yet to be certified but she has been said to be in her in her late twenties.
4. Becoming queen
After the dissolution of his marriage with Olori Wuraola, the Ooni of Ife Adeyeye had to contend with several women seeking his attention. But he chose Shilekunola Moronke Naomi because, according to him, “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 on this throne of Oduduwa.” And for the king, his queen possessed this.
5. Her responsibility as the new Olori
As gathered from an interview granted by the former olori, Wuraola, the wives of the Ooni of Ife are bound by a number of roles and responsibilities which might restrict them in areas like fashion, lifestyle and mannerisms. Also, their movement is somewhat restrained.
It would seem Naomi who is now the new queen of the indigenous community might soon have adhere to all these.
