As a result of her economic prowress, she was installed as the 1st Iyalode of Egbaland. In her time, she was the wealthiest woman in the Yoruba kingdom. Although originally from Egba land (Abeokuta), Madam Efunroye Tinubu's wealth spread across plantations which present day.Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) and Igbo-Obi Can (Kola nut plantation) stand on. The Tinubu family also has the distinguished honour of producing the first Muslim medical doctor in Nigeria, Abdulhamid Saka Tinubu(1901).

The popular Saka Tinubu street in Victoria Island, is named after him. It was from this legendary Tinubu family that Asiwaju Bolanle Adekunle Tinubu's (1952) lineage stems from. (Albeit, history has it that her two sons died from Malaria.
