Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife, and Silekunola Naomi, his wife, have taken to social media to celebrate Tadenikawo, their son, as he clocks one. 


In November 2020, the monarch and Naomi welcomed Tadenikawo, their first child together — two years after they had gotten married.

In a post via his Instagram page on Thursday, the Ooni described their son “as an answer to many prayers”, adding that he came at the appointed time.

He also prayed for their bundle of joy and reiterated his love for him on the occasion of his birthday.


“Prince Tadenikawo is one today!!! An answer to many prayers, you came right at the appointed time,” he wrote.

“To the glory of the Almighty, the King of Kings, you will surely live to fulfill your destiny in this world! Amin! Ase !!! Lots of love from – Ooni Ojaja II and Olori Silekunola”.

The monarch’s wife also celebrated their son’s birthday in a touching Instagram post.


In the post, Naomi called Tadenikawo the couple’s “gift from God”. She also said that his arrival brought peace to her soul.

“Eri-Ifeoluwasimi our gift from God! I’ve got peace like a river,  I’ve got peace like a river, I’ve got peace like a river in my soul,” she wrote.

Naomi, who is a prophetess, had earlier recounted how societal pressure made conception difficult for her after she tied the knot with the monarch in 2018.

“It was like I was supposed to start popping babies almost immediately. The whole world was just looking at me,” she had said.


“Thank God for a supportive husband, he would always tell me not to bother. think it was something I was challenged with from the first day I got married.”

Below are first birthday photos of the monarch’s son:
