Unveiling Ooni’s New Wife: Princess Ashley Afolashade Adegoke

Reports have surfaced online that a one-time lover of Ooni of Ife, Princess Ashley Afolashade Adegoke is the new Olori of Oba Ogunwusi’s palace.

This development is coming after Prophetess Naomi, on Thursday announced her separation from their three-year old marriage.

The new Olori, Princess Ashley is an entrepreneur and an accountant. The pretty queen runs a non-profit organisation known as Ashley Adegoke Foundation.

She was based in London before relocating to Ile Ife.

According to reports, Princess Ashley is not a new entrant at the Ile-Ife palace, as she is also a blue-blood princess of another Ife ruling house, a descendant of a former Ooni.

She is said to have won the heart of the King long before Queen Naomi married him.

Recall, Queen Naomi while announcing her divorce from the King, hinted that Oba Ogunwusi has a new lover.

She wrote, “Few impressions I would love to correct. If anyone knows otherwise, they are free to come up with facts. Let it be known that this decision to move on did not come because his majesty is married to another queen. As many would love to assume, throughout our life as a couple, I was the only married wife to him. There were side attractions, but it was never an issue,” she said.

Princess Ashley, who is a single mother further fueled the marriage rumour as she penned a tribute to Ooni on the sixth year anniversary of his father’s throne.

She wrote, “Six years has flown by so quickly, I see and pray for many more years to come on the throne of your forefathers Omo Ajinaja Ogun. Akande Mii Ajiwe Fun’Osha, Okirikiribiti, Dagunduro Oko ODU… Iti Omo Irumole, Ekun ton fin tori tori, Ekun ton fin tiru tiru, Adigimala awo funfun, while others search for what they can take, you have taken the weight of the world on your shoulders and always search for what you can give back. Your ascension on the throne has changed a lot of lives not only in Ile-Ife but the entire black race. A true King’s power is his compassion which you show effortlessly.

“We acknowledge the good that we have in Yoruba land which is you my crown jewel and for us, it is the foundation for all abundance. Ade a pe lori yin, Ase a pe lenu yin, thank you for all you do for humanity. To many more years on the throne of your forefathers, in good health and in abundance of wealth. I remain Aya Oba, ODU Aya Orunmila, Aya Oosha, Aya Olofin Adimula, Omo Oba.”

It was gathered that the monarch would have made her his first queen but for the fact that she is a single mum, which is reportedly against the royal tradition.
