Olori Wuraola Zaynab Otiti Ogunwusi, the estranged wife of Ooni of Ife (Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi) has been chastised for betraying the trust of Hearts of Gold Hospice – and warned from claiming to have donated any money to it, encomium.ng reliably gathered.
The drama unfolded following the visit of Olori Wuraola to the hospice on Sunday, August 20, 2017. And pictures of her visit with some of the children generously splashed on social media thereafter.
Insiders revealed that the publication of the pictures breached the agreement with Hearts of Gold Hospice.
“Olori Wuraola arrived unannounced at Hearts of Gold Hospice in Masha, Surulere, that Sunday, August 20,” one of the insiders narrated. “And insisted that she wanted to see Mrs. Laja Adedoyin.

Olori Wuraola failed to address the earlier agreement that the pictures were private.
One of the sources of annoyance was the impression created that the donation promised Hearts of Gold Hospice at the charity concert was redeemed.
On February 24, 2017, a ‘Give back concert’ was staged at Eko Hotel (Lagos) with 20 homes slated to benefit from donations. The concert had Ooni of Ife, Emir of Kano, Senator Florence Ita Giwa, Chief Nike Oshinowo, and a host of glitterati. Performers included, Darey Art Alade, Tuface, Waje and more…
