It has been fairly smooth. The important thing is that I am married to my husband. Even if he is a royal, that doesn’t change the fact that he is still my husband. Of course, certain things are different and there are certain expectations. But overall, no two lives or homes are the same. We just accept our peculiarities like everyone else and live with it.

There are no challenges attached to being a queen. If anything, there are privileges and I am grateful. Sometimes, I like going to the market to shop because I love being around regular people. We learn so much about life through them. Life is such a long stretch of time and as much as I can, I try to live a normal life.

Before any other thing, being married to the Ooni of Ife means I am his support system in addition to being his spouse. It means taking the responsibility of being a voice for the voiceless. It also means an opportunity to be a part of history, and contribute positively to people’s future
