•They Are All Beautiful, Stylish & Into Fashion
Did you know that the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi is the king with the highest number of beautiful Oloris in Nigeria? Yes, he is. No other king has a high number of beauties as Olori’s. Some of them are elderly, who are called Queen Mothers, but the vast majority are young beauties in their 30s and 40s.
Gone are the days when Olori’s are usually kept hidden in the palace of the king. Todays Olori’s step out with their kings. They are also very active on social media. You get to follow them on INSTAGRAM & Facebook.
Alaafin of Oyo’s younger wives have become so popular on the social scene right now. We see them stepping out with Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, the Alaafin of Oyo who is 82 years old. They are pretty. Stunning and compliment the Alaafin whenever he steps out. Their recent outing was in Lagos about 2 weeks ago.
Alaafin of Oyo is one of the most respected Yoruba monarchs and It is no longer news that he has got a good taste for pretty and young women. As they catch his fancy, Alaafin does not hesitate to make them his beloved wives. We gathered that Alaafin’s wives are up to 13 where Ayaba Abibat Adeyemi, the first wife is 80 years old. There are a few other older Olori’s. But he has some pretty young wives who are 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.
Recently, Alaafin’s picture with 7 of his wives went viral on the Internet and it became a topic of discussion as all the wives looked pretty in similar attire. The photo was taken and released to celebrate, Eid-il-Kabir on Friday, July 31.
During the celebration, the Alaafin took pictures with members of his family, and then 7 of his beautiful, fair-skinned, younger wives joined him in beautiful group photographs to mark the year 2020 Sallah celebration. They were all gaily dressed in the same outfit with similar shoes and bags to complement their outing.
Only Olori Badirah was missing. She wasn’t around. All those Olori’s maintain a regular Instagram presence and they upload lovely photos of themselves and their children. They also take photos with Kabiyeesi. In one of Alaafin’s interview, he revealed how he got attracted to all his Oloris.
“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.” Alaafin must have a penchant for taking good care of Olori’s as many of them decide to spend the rest of their lives with the old monarch at 82.
