Zaynab Obanor On The Re­bound, Re­ceives UN Hu­man­i­tar­ian Awards

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - HIGH SOCIETY -

SHe­was the cen­tre of at­trac­tion all of the past months, due to her failed mar­riage to the Yoruba race’s most revered king, Oba Adey­eye Eni­tan Ba­batunde Ogun­wusi, the Ooni of Ife, the Ojaja II. Af­ter much de­nial from the palace,

the in­trigues were fi­nally laid to rest when the lady her­self came out to say she was no longer the Ooni’s heart­beat and had al­ready moved on, to bet­ter things. Now only just a few weeks af­ter all of those un­due scru­tiny and bash­ing, the gor­geous lady now sim­ply re­ferred to as Zaynab seems to have got­ten her groove back awe­somely and go­ing about her own busi­ness, not mind­ing whose ox is gored. A few hours ago, the vo­cal lady who re­cently lead a few other women to raise aware­ness against the ills of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence etc, landed in New York, United States, to par­tic­i­pate at the 72nd ses­sion of the UNGA “United Na­tions Gen­eral As­sem­bly” 2017. The young and highly fo­cused lady has not al­lowed the mis­for­tune of her short-lived mar­riage de­rail her fo­cus, as she con­tin­ues on her hu­man­i­tar­ian path. Zaynab is a well recog­nised pro­tec­tor of the UNFPA, a world recog­nised body which aims to fight for the rights of women, men and chil­dren’s health all over the world. Only last week the former Olori gave her voice to the “De­liver for Good” event. While it is ob­vi­ous that her ex-hus­band Oba Ogun­wusi has since moved on to the next level, we are happy also that Zaynab seems to have got­ten back her groove back and is grad­u­ally mov­ing on gamely too.
