It is no longer news that Alhaji Alimotu Shadiat a.k.a Iya Oyo is the new Yeye Oba of Iboro- land in Yewa, Ogun State, but many observers were surprised that the Lagos society woman added a new feather to her cap. In case you don’t know why Iya Oyo was picked as Yeye Oba of Iboro land, permit us to tell you that investigations revealed that Kabiyesi Oba Salako doesn’t only respect and adore Iya Oyo, he holds her in esteem. That was why he didn’t give it a second thought after becoming the King to make her the Yeye Oba. The king who revealed his relationship with Iya Oyo during his speech said: ‘I have known Iya Oyo for more than 20years and she has been playing the role of a mother to me and my family ever since. Iya Oyo, you are my mother and my elder sister, please you have to come to Iboro more often now that you are the Yeye Oba of Iboroland“. Iya Oyo was the cynosure of all eyes in a white special aso-oke from Bisbod while her white special bead had 18 carat gold stopper in between. She travelled to Italy to get the precious luxury jewellery which she used. Her unique flat slippers matched with her beaded pearl white purse.

Iya oyo, a woman of panache and finesse, walked gracefully as she gave her husband a big hug.

Iboro is a popular town in Yewa. Its popularity is not unconnected with a saying:, “Iboro leti Shala“(Iboro near Shala) and the axiom has made the town more popular. The town, which is a few kilometres from ‘Imashayi‘ and ‘Ibeche‘ didn’t have a king for years. The town was thrown into jubilation last week as people came from far and near to witness the historic installation. Kabiyesi, Abayomi Salako is ‘Ilufemiloye‘(popular choice), the American-based businessman was all smiles as he ascended the throne of his forefathers.
