Alaafin, simply means man of the Palace in the Yoruba language. It is the title of the king of the medieval Oyo empire and present day Oyo town.
Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III is the current Alaafin, or traditional ruler, of the Yoruba town of Oyo and rightful heir to the throne of its historic empire.
He is married to Ayaba Abibat Adeyemi, his senior wife, alongside otht twelve junior wives he’s also married to.
They are as follows: Ayaba Rahmat Adedayo Adeyemi, Ayaba Mujidat Adeyemi, Ayaba Rukayat Adeyemi, Ayaba Folashade Adeyemi, Ayaba Badirat Ajoke Adeyemi, Ayaba Memunat Omowunmi Adeyemi,Ayaba Omobolanle Adeyemi, Ayaba Moji Adeyemi, Ayaba Anuoluwapo Adeyemi, and Ayaba Damilola Adeyemi.
Yesterday, it was reported that he had added a new wife Chioma by name to his outrageous lists of wives. It was also reported that the new Alaafin of Oyo latest wife Chioma Nwadike-Stanley was allegedly previously married to an Igbo man.
Is this not an insult to the Yoruba people IF truely she was once married?
Y’all can now agree with me that Nigrian women marry for money and not for love? Well I’m not sure we are ready for this topic today. Bye
