The above title(s) carries a massive punch, as it is triplicate in effect and package. Just imagine, that it says "most stylish, most colourful and most visible", all at the same time.
Olori (Queen) WuraOla Ogunwusi of the source, the wife of Yorubaland's most sacred king, the Ooni of Ife, in the person of His Imperial Majesty, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Babatunde Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, fits the bill(s) perfectly.
Until she came on board or on the scene, not too long ago, the only wives of the Kings we used to see more in the public eye, were the 3 wives of the Osile Oke-Ona Egba in Ogun State, Oba Dr. Adedapo Tejuosho. These 3 ladies took and co (Aso Ebi) to the stratosphere, but it was just very predictable as they were mostly in Iro and Buba (that is wrapper and blouse). The other wives that used to get our attention then we're 2 of the wives of the late Ooni, Oba Sijuwade, the Olubuse. Both were known more for their extraordinary Jewelry collection, as they both also majorly favoured Iro and Buba (wrapper and top).
More after the break. Please click on read more below.
Up until not too long ago, when the Alaafin of Oyo, decided to showcase his many wives to the public, many had not seen them before and then when they decided to showcase, it was still the same kinda style.
For the Ibos and especially the Hausas, it's like the unspoken rule is that they are meant for just the palaces alone, so they are not Celebrities nor stars to just be seen in the open like that.
In the history of most Yoruba kings (obas), none of their queens (Oloris) have ever been as visible as the wife of the present Ooni. She's so visible that she even sometimes represents her king and husband at many top events and occasions.

Her carriage, gait, aura sets her apart. Though like her husband, she favours white too, hers has not been predictably boring like one would have expected. Maybe because she's loads younger than most of the queens, she's been able to inject that youthful vibe into her outfit. Most do not know or understand that to wear just white alone takes a lot of ingenuity to make it stylish and on point. That Olori WuraOla has been able to keep her outfit fresh is commendable.
Now what she just needs to do, to take her style to very next level, is to actually invest more in outstanding jewelry. The likes that separates girls from ladies. Just imagine the rubies, emeralds, sapphires, diamonds etc. The likes of the $50,000 type that we heard Senator Florence Ita-Giwa gifted her a while back.
Imagine that she invests more in those stupendously gorgeous clutch bags and standout shoes, this would totally obliterate all comers on the style stake. Thank God that at least she's related to the owners of Polo Ltd brand, so they should also help to totally transform her wardrobe to the very next next level.
For now though, she's still the most stylish, most colourful and most visible amongst all, bar none.
