God’s Wives is an NGO that provides support for widows and single moms through empowerment programs.

The media personality had last year said she was not only inspired to start a foundation called ‘God’s Wives’ but to also draw the attention of Nigerians to the issue through a documentary of the same name.

“The plight of widows in Nigeria is something that I’m really passionate about. I worked with those group of women and over time, I don’t like what is happening to them. Culturally and societally, it is something we need to address.”

“The plight of widows is so unimaginable in this country,” she had said.
