It is so sad what has happened and I feel so sorry for our president because it was obvious that he really loved 'this' wife from the very bottom of his heart. Stella became a household name because everyone took a liking to her for her style and flambouyance. In fact I hear there is a hairstyle named after her, "Irun Stella", an up-do that mimics her signature afro. In Nigeria if you have a hair style named after you, you have landed. The circumstances surrounding her death are trickling in, but I will reserve my comments about that until after she's been laid to rest. I just hope we as a people will learn from some of these things, be content and thank God for the small mercies that he shows us every day. Below are some pictures and a link that I stumbled up on that answers some questions about Stella as a perosn and the legacy she leaves behind. At first when the question, what will Stella be remembered for, was asked, the only thing that came to mind was Stella as a fashion icon. But reading the information in the link below has softened that approach and I am finding out more about our late first lady than i'd known before.

'Oby and Stello'

Queen Eliza meets Queen Stella

What a beautiful and radiant woman she was

Yes, it is sad in deed that she would die so soon BUT God knows best.
My heart goes out to the President and his family, I can only imagine what they are going through. In deed she was fashionable and was in the public eye but I think Maryam Babangida as First Lady is comparable to how Stella Obasanjo was, ok maybe to a lesser degree and back then things were not as we know them to be in terms of fashion and the media (Pre- City People and Ovation)
Whatever circumstances under which she died, she is no longer with us and that is a loss in itself.

Rest In Peace Stella Obasanjo.
