Ooni of Ife's Daughter Counters Mother's Statement, Re-affirms Love For Father 

Over the week, Omolara Olatunbosun estranged wife of Ooni of Ife; Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi made a statement published on a popular new platform where she stated that; Ooni Adeyeye Ogunwusi was an absentee father to their daughter Adeola Ogunwusi at birth. She also made an allegation that; Ooni was nowhere to be found as she was the one who single-handedly raised Adeola from childbirth.

Her statement reads; “I was a pregnant teen, but he(Ooni) was nowhere to be found, and I bore the responsibilities for our child, and paid the physical and social cost of raising her alone in my mom’s house,” Omolara insisted.

Omolara Olatubosun, who repeatedly glosses over Ooni’s constant reference to his daughter as the apple of his eye whom he raised as a single father, could not take any of that. She maintains that the truth remains that the monarch was an absentee father, describing his claim of a loving father as mendacious and having no basis in fact, but has gone on for too long. “I was, in fact, the single parent.

He was, until our daughter was old enough, an absentee father.” “I, Omolara, took care of my daughter physically, financially and emotionally, with the moral support of my mother and siblings.  I was a pregnant teen, but he was nowhere to be found, and I bore the responsibilities for our child and paid the physical and social cost of raising her alone in my mom’s house,” she maintained in a statement released.

In reaction to the above assertion made by Omolara Olatunbosun about Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Princess Adeola Ogunwusi, the daughter in question has come out publicly on social media reacting to the claim made by her mother.

In her post on Instagram, via her handle, adeola_oguns, she posted a comment re-affirming her unending love for her father. She also never failed to extol his virtues and the fatherly love and support laced with listening ears she has enjoyed all her life which has helped mold her to become a better woman.

She said; ” Kabiyesi, I don’t think I can ever forget to get used to the way you carry my matter on your head… the pride in your eyes whenever you talk about me; it is always my daughter this, my daughter that.

Wahala for who no get daughter o!. Kabiyesi, I am who I am today because of you…the love and admiration you constantly shower on me has made me into this kind and thoughtful young woman.  Thank you for being who you are, you are forever generous and loving. I love you today, tomorrow and forever.”
