Ex-wife of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, Queen Zaynab, took to her Instagram page to reflect on the out-gone year, 2017.
In a post she shared Queen Zaynab said despite all the temptations life threw her way in 2017, she is still standing.
Recall that the 17 month old marriage of Queen Zaynab and the Ooni packed up in August 2017.
”I cannot thank everyone enough who made that possible, through all the temptations and blows life threw, I am still standing! And so are a lot of you who deal with life lessons & struggles everyday. Strength and confidence are the opportunities we need to continue to move forward.
We might not have it all, we might not know it all, but faith is all we need to inspire us. I thank you all for being a part of my life’s journey and as we walk into the New Year always remembering that “tomorrow is another day” & we can truly cease the moment and simply live without fear. I wish you all a prosperous new year 2018”.
In August Olori Wuraola finally broke silence about the end of her marriage to Ooni of Ife, reverts to her maiden name. Below was what she posted on her instagram page
Olori Wuraola has finally broken her silence about the end of her marriage to Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife. Coming after she visited popular writer, Dele Momodu who initially confirmed the marriage crash, as earlier reported today.
Olori made this public in a statement released on her IG page that now has the Ooni’s name removed, She penned;
We have got to stop this culture of shaming and vilifying women with false stories of infidelity & nefarious behavior. The spreading of false information (through “sources” afraid to be identified) is the mark of cowards and a cover up for guilty parties to justify their horrific actions. There is absolutely no truth to the media circulated lies of infidelity and infertility- on my end.
What I can confirm, is that the Ooni and I are no more. I inhale love & exhale gratitude. My journey continues as a Humanitarian aiding women and victims of domestic violence & abuse with the United Nations. No matter how much time you’ve invested, no matter the use of media to silence & manipulate, no matter the circumstance, slander, embarrassment, threats and lies: Get out and seek immediate help!
We’ve seen this movie before. Women being dragged in the press & blamed for everything under the sun. This behavior is unacceptable. I urge those involved to be mindful of their actions for the eyes of our Almighty God are always watching. The seeds of slander is a cancer that harvests to eat away the souls of the planter.
The throne is sacred and the attempts to tarnish the name of a Queen, in defense or on behalf of a silent King makes all involved look terrible. Remain dignified in all you do. It’s not the end of the world, but the start of a new chapter and you must turn the page with grace. The world is watching.
As I bid adieu to this chapter, my wish to you all is to step into your lives – boldly & fearlessly, the way God intended and live not just by words, but through example. The best chapter in our lives is the one we are writing now. Thank you for your love and support.
With peace, love & light, -Her Highness, Zaynab Otiti Obanor.
