Olori Sekinat Elegushi is the wife of the Oba of Ikate land, Oba Saheed Elegushi. In this interview, Olori Elegushi talks about her love for kids and her dedication to giving back to society.
What informed the New Year Party?
The new year party for the children has become a tradition since we started years back. As you can see, they are not my biological children but I still see them as my kids.
My foundation, Quality and Selfless Empowerment, put this together with the support of my husband, Oba Saheed Elegushi.
What inspired this?
I derive joy and happiness in doing this. I love kids and I always want them to be around me.
Talking about philanthropy, is it in your nature or is it just a way to help people in your kingdom?
I will hesitate to describe what I do as an act of philanthropy. It is just my humble way of giving back to the society.
We are in an era where most people are driven by the urge to be socially responsible to humanity and one’s immediate environment.
My husband and I are united in the act of giving back to the society, and we strive to show this as often as we can.
