Royalty laced with affluence is sweet, most especially when it’s blessed with opulence and splendor. It soothes body and soul. But for Zaynab Otiti Obanor, the ex wife of HIM Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, she is indeed an epitome of royalty with blue blood flowing in her veins.
During her days as the heartthrob of stylish Ife monarch, she commanded respect at all strata of life. Her gait, composure, charming smile and endearing persona, earned her public acceptance. At the sight of her at any public function, paparazzi flashed just to catch a glimpse of her ravishing beauty.
When she announced her breakup with the Ooni of Ife, it generated mixed reactions as different tongue wagged at her over such decision. Many wondered why she decided to leave such glitz and glamour in the house of Oduduwa.
Despite all the criticisms at the wake of her divorce with Ooni Enitan Ogunwusi, Olori Wuraola has been able to grow past the public shame and ridicule for leaving the second-in-command to the gods. Often times, divorcing a King especially that of higher status in the Yorubaland is somewhat attributed to a public insult to the monarch.
3 years after the divorce, Queen Zaynab has been involved in several humanitarian and philanthropic works. She is an ambassador of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

Please refrain from criticizing those who give their time & money to charitable causes in other countries like Sierra Leone. Charity knows no geographic boundaries. If you're not a part of the solution, you're the problem. My Initiative, #Forward has donated over $150,000 rebuilding and funding local orphanages and training centers in Lagos and Benin since February 2017. One of my orphanages, Sacred Heart Hospice in Surulere is in need of more donors and volunteers. They are a home for marginalized and special needs children with autism and birth defects.◾ These amazing children also performed at my #OrphanAid Give Back Concert in February 2017 and were amongst recipients of the funds raised. Your generosity towards their care will go a long way. You truly haven't lived until you do something for someone who can not repay you. www.hoghospice.org Donate your resources directly to them.
