As part of her contribution to the orphanages in the country, the Olori Wuraola Orphan Aid Project, an arm of the House of Oduduwa Foundation, recently staged a give back concert in Lagos. The well-attended concert attracted notable stars such as 2Baba, Darey, Adekunle Gold, Waje, Cobhams, Sound Sultan, Kenny Blaq, Funbi and Lamboghini.

Expectedly, there was no dull moment, as music stars thrilled the audience with world-class performance that left the huge crowd inside the Eko Convention Center Lagos, asking for more.

Olori Wuraola, the queen and wife of the Ooni of Ife, left no one in doubt of her ability to add glitz, glamour and razzmatazz to an event that was organised to show love to the less-privileged. She has successfully demonstrated her deep love for the poor by practically living her life to conform to her philosophy that is deeply rooted in the aphorism that wealth is nothing if it cannot be used for the advancement of society and mankind.

Her effort to draw the people’s attention to the plights of the less-privileged, especially in the southwest zone of the country, with the good response to her call by dignitaries that include the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi; His imperial majesty Enitan Ogunwusi, Ooni of Ife, billionaire businesswoman, Hajia Bola Shagaya; Sen. Ita Giwa; Nike Osinowo; Erelu Dosunmu, Sisi Abah Folawiyo among several others. Nollywood stars were also in attendance to lend their support to the cause. 

“I want to assist in the renovation of local orphanages and provide foods and other items to orphans in the rural areas of Nigeria and across Africa. Orphans are society’s lost children. They are homeless; they are often a group without hopes. These children have lost their parents and families due to the devastating effects of war, drought, famine and economic hardships; hence they are suffering from malnutrition, diseases and hopelessness. These vulnerable children face a disastrous future without our immediate intervention,” she said.More than 20 orphanages are expected to benefit from the proceeds of the concert, which she promised would be used to renovate such orphanages.
