A former wife of the Ooni of Ife, Queen Naomi Ogunwusi, has said she entered the palace too innocent.
Queen Naomi announced her separation from Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi Ojaja II in December 2021.
The separation was greeted with shock as many never knew the couple had issues.
Prior to her departure from the palace, the Ondo State indigene had a son for the monarch.
Queen Naomi described her time spent with the Ooni as a bitter-sweet experience in a conversation with our correspondent on Wednesday.
She said, “I am hesitant about speaking on my experiences in the palace. But in my usual way of talking, it was a bittersweet experience. Details, I will not be sharing, but it was a bitter-sweet experience. There were really sweet moments and there were really bitter moments. It is not yet time to talk about it because some things are meant to just teach you by yourself. I believe the messages are just for me at the moment, when God wants to enlarge and expand on it and make it a message for the whole world, then I will hear his words and talk about it.
“Lessons learned are personal and they have helped in shaping me. I am enjoying 30 so much; 30 makes me really strong. I am too innocent; I think I entered the palace too innocent and soft, but life is not like that, you have to be strong, bold and courageous.”
