"They Desired To Be With Me, I Did Not Propose To Any Of My Wives" Alaafin Of Oyo Reveals.

"They Desired To Be With Me, I Did Not Propose To Any Of My Wives" Alaafin Of Oyo Reveals.

In Nigeria, it is a well-known fact that the Alaafin of Oyo is the ruler with the largest number of beautiful queens.

Few of them are elderly women, who are called Queen Mothers, but majority of them are 30s and 40s.

As per City People, Oba Adeyemi's wives are up to 13 where the first wife, Ayaba Abibat Adeyemi is 80 years old.

There are some other older Olori's. But he does have some pretty young wives, about 8.

The wives are Queen Memunat, Queen Damilola, Queen Anu, Queen Mojisola, Queen Ola Badirat, Queen Folashade, Queen Omobolanle and Queen Rukayat Abbey Adeyemi.

Alaafin of Oyo, why revealing how he got attracted to all his queens, said

“I did not propose to any of my wives. They desired to be with me because I sent them to school. After their university education, I told them to leave but they refused and insisted on staying with me here in the palace as my wives.

The least educated of them has a Higher National Diploma and is now in the University. I don’t begrudge or offend women. Marriage is an institution that must be defended.

Each partner has a role to play in the marriage. My wives have their individual quarters. God has given me some type of ability and grace to keep a woman, especially beautiful women. I don’t disclose my conversations or activities with one wife to another.

I maintain a strict code of confidentiality. I have learnt that I must positively make an impact on people and make a great first impression. Of course, they (wives) sometimes have disagreements and conflicts of opinion but I have been ‘graced’ by God to know how to ensure that the conflicts don’t escalate.”

Recall that one of the Oloris, Queen Ola confirmed this months back in an interview with Tribune saying “Baba brought me up from scratch, sponsored me to school and imparted knowledge into me to become the person I am today.

 It was a father-and-daughter relationship until I felt I had a brighter future with the commitment he showed. It is unfair for anyone to insinuate that he took advantage of me or any other person. We had formal wedding in the presence of the chief imam and other scholars including my family members. There is no secret about it. And am I not better off today?"
