      Same question I came to ask. This woman will not respect herself. She is no longer married to the king, she should drop the title. Or should his first wife also go by the queen title too? This woman is not just an emergency feminist, she is also a myopic and shallow minded wannabe. I’m only imagining her expectations dumping her husband for the king, only for things to go south on short notice.

    Nice one! Congratulations. I just thought she’d stop wearing white and we’ll see more colours on her. But I guess once a queen, always a queen

    Are they going to have to drag her to court before she drops the HRH? Cos if she isn’t garnering accolades on oonirisa ‘s recognizance and name drop, I see a court case coming soon.

    See madam! throwing shade. This lady is smart and intelligent. See polite insults
    “tradition without intelligent is not worth having”hands on my head. ??MMM. Ooni,Sir! You carry wetin pass you. This is what you get when you ridiculed your first Mrs . You need to watch the video on her page. Well spoken and also speaks volumes. Please I understand she is pained, but girl focus on women and girls. It so obvious those few lines were shade throwing. Silence they say it golden. Stay mute girl. They always regret their actions.
