Divorcing Ooni Of Ife Was Not Easy – Ex-Queen

The ex-wife of the Ooni of Ife, Queen Zaynab Otitis Obanor, has said divorcing her ex husband was not an easy thing to do.

The former queen and the Ooni went their separate ways in August 2017.

In an interview with Vogue Arabia, she said, “To be the first queen out of Africa to end my marriage with a king – interesting to hear that that’s considered a thing. It wasn’t easy to summon the courage for such a decision. I wanted to stand for what I believed in.

“@hhzaynab started her namesake foundation in 2019, with projects helping women achieve financial independence, offering young girls scholarships, and helping domestic abuse victims. I want to uplift all those who are downtrodden. Connecting Africa and Middle East, Queen Zaynab also founded the Arab African Economic Development Initiative of which the UAE is a strong partner.”

The union, which lasted two years, did not produce any child.
