Prophetess Naomi and queen of the Ooni of Ife has been spotted in a white apparel dancing at the christening ceremony of the royal prince, Adesoji Aderemi.

The birth of the prince on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, was greeted by three phases of 21day traditional rites according to the dictates of Yoruba customs before it was rounded off today within the premises of Ile Oodua Palace of the Ooni, where Queen Naomi was spotted.

Kemi Filani News recounts that the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, on Wednesday fulfilled his promise to name his newly born prince after his predecessor, Sir Tadenikawo Adesoji Aderemi.

The day which climaxed the first eight-day of the 3-week cultural rites traditionally observed at the Ile Oodua Palace of the Ooni of Ife for naming new born princes and princess started with the traditional movement of the Ooni from his private residence in the palace to the sacred Yeyemoolu well to offer prayers and traditional rites before moving through various palace chambers; from Ile Ogun to Ile Odikeji and Ile Omirin, finally to Ile-Igbo to mount the oldest stool of Oduduwa at Ile Igbo Where a reigning Ooni occasionally sits whenever there is a very important event.

At Ile Igbo, spiritual obeisance by the Isoros and other traditional rites were offered to formally welcome the royal baby to the Ife Royal Court and announce his names to the general public.

Custodians of various deities known as ‘Oba Isoro’, Obas, and Ife High-Chiefs offered prayers in the traditional way with items like sugarcane, Aadun, honey, dried fishes, money, pen, bitter colas, cola nuts, alligator peppers, snails schnapps, water, palm oil, doves and other Yoruba core prayer items.

After the prayers and sacrifices, the Ooni consulted the Ifa oracle through the Araba Agbaye, head of Ifa priests worldwide, before making the baby’s names public.

Names of the prince handed by Araba Agbaye to High-Chief Lowa of Ife, Chief Adekola Adeyeye who officially pronounced them to the anxious crowd are Tadenikawo, Adesoji, Aderemi, Eri-Ifeoluwasimi, Adeiwa, Inioluwa, Ademide, Adegbite, Diekoloreoluwa, son of Ogunwusi.

Big brother Naija star Gifty Powers says she’s married to an American man and explains why she kept the birth of her second child a secret

She said , “ I am married and the reason I still have not revealed his (husband ’s ) identity is that my personal life is extremely priceless and not for sale . My husband is an American and a month after we got married , he suggested that since I am a Nigerian , he would love for us to live in my country . But I declined , due to personal reasons. However, I still have my house and businesses in Lagos and Abuja . The world is deep and for one to have a long – lasting relationship ,one must keep it off social media.

“ Also, I deliberately kept the birth of my second child a secret for two reasons . One, because I am proud of my two kids and two , I am full of surprises . Not every part of my life is meant for the media. A mother should always be able to protect her children at any cost because the world we live in is delicate . It is better to be safe than to say ‘had I known ’. ”

Speaking on celebrities who had been accused of snatching people ’s spouses , Powers said , “ On the issue of celebrities who have been accused of having relationships with other people ’s spouses or snatching other women’s husbands , I feel life is full of issues.

Everyone has got their stories , so who am I to judge them ? As much as it is a sin , there is a story behind every situation . One just has to hear the other side of the story.

“ Also, as shocking as it may seem, I am proud of all the mistakes I have made. I have no regrets . But, there is one mistake I am not so proud of . I cannot give many details but it happened in October 2019.

Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has insisted he is “unconcerned,” by speculation surrounding his future at the club and his only focus is turning around their slump.

The Blues have now won only one of their last seven matches in all competitions, after losing 3-1 to Manchester City on Sunday.

Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne all scored in the first half at Stamford Bridge, to hand the former champions complete domination of the game.

Chelsea have now slipped to 8th place in the table, with reports emerging claiming the club is considering firing Lampard if the team’s poor performances continue.

When asked about the mounting pressure on him, Lampard said: “I’m not concerned on that point.

“I expected periods of difficulty this year. I said it when we beat Leeds and everyone was championing us to be title contenders. I know that it doesn’t come that easy, I know where we’re at.

“Whether it puts pressure on me is regardless. Because a month ago, everyone was asking when I would sign a new contract, and now people will be saying different things because over a tight, busy period, we’ve lost four games of football.”
