Worth an estimated $2.5 billion, she has increased her philanthropy through the Rose of Sharon Foundation, which caters primarily to widows and orphans. Folorunso is also an author of three books launched on her 60th birthday in 2011 - an autobiography, and books on marriage counselling and philanthropy.

Her new website provides pictures of her life through the years. Check out some of them below...
