I wash my husband’s underwears – Second richest African woman, Folorunsho Alakija


Such humility is always an inspiration!

For if you though washing your husband’s underwear is beneath you, well a rethink won’t hurt when you consider the fact that the second richest woman in Africa could do it, wealth and all.

Second richest African woman, Folorunsho Alakija, has revealed she used to washes her husband’s undies until six years ago when he insisted she should stop.

The executive vice chairman of Famfa Oil and group managing director of The Rose of Sharon Group revealed recently how she still dotes on her husband like a teenager who just found love. The Africa’s richest self-made woman, with a net worth estimated at $1 billion said:

“My husband is my best friend, biggest adviser and supporter. We’ve known each other for 40 years and have been married for 37 years now and with four boys. Even though we work in the same office, I always ensure that we kiss twice in a day, morning and night. I still wash his undies until six years ago that he insisted I should stop. I also prepare his special vegetable dish and do his manicure and pedicure regularly.
“I go to the airport to pick him whenever he’s returning from foreign trips. It gives me joy whenever his friends praise my vegetable dish based on what my husband tells them.”

So nice.
