In the past weeks, the media has been awash with the story of the crashed marriage of the Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi to Zynab.
When the woman of substance, who is now addressed as Queen Zynab, decided to walk out of the marriage, many could not fathom the reason for her action. Many had sneered at her, thinking that she might eventually go into obscurity.
But recent developments may have proved her critics wrong, as she seems to have put the doleful experience behind her.
Indeed, her fans could not have been happier when she participated at the recently held 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly, where she was endowed with the “Humanitarian of the Year” award from “Kechie’s Project” at an event during the UNGA week for her outstanding contributions to women and children across the globe.
It will be recalled that she was also part of the United Nations delegates to a conference in New York, United States in April, where she shared her views on ‘Safeguarding and protecting the endangered cultural heritage in time of conflict.
The beautiful lady has remained focused and has not allowed the misfortune of her short-lived marriage weigh her down, as she continues with her humanitarian services
Humble and respectful, Queen Zynab never trivialises the teachings of the holy Bible, which include that the rich should be a source of joy to the needy. In fact, it is said that her philosophy of life is deeply rooted in the aphorism that wealth is nothing if it cannot be used for the advancement of society and mankind.
