81-year-old Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, was pictured with some of his pretty wives during the Eid-Kabir celebration on Friday, July 31.
Lamidi Adeyemi succeeded Alaafin Gbadegesin Ladigbolu II in 1970, during the governorship of Colonel Robert Adeyinka Adebayo, after the end of the Nigerian Civil War.
In 1975, the head of state General Murtala Ramat Mohammed included Oba Adeyemi in his entourage to the hajj. He was chancellor of Uthman dan Fodiyo University in Sokoto from 1980 to 1992.
In 1990, President Ibrahim Babangida appointed him Amir-ul-Hajj in recognition of his commitment to the consolidation of Islam in Nigeria.
Meanwhile, Nigerian juju musician, Ebenezer Obey has declared that only a “foolish old man” would marry a young lady, who is still in the early years of her life, as a wife.
