The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi has married a new wife amid reports of marital crisis rocking his palace in the last few months.

The monarch and his 13th wife were recently spotted at the installation of Real Estate Giant, Chief Tomori Williams as the Aare Onikoyi of Yorubaland last weekend.

The news became known when popular Fuji musician, Wasiu Ayinde praised the monarch and also mentioned Olori Chioma Adeyemi, and Nigerians have been reacting.

Congrats to him.

Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III (born 15 October 1938) is the Alaafin, or traditional ruler, of the Yoruba town of Oyo and rightful heir to the throne of its historic empire.

Lamidi’s father, the Alaafin of Oyo Oba Adeyemi II Adeniran, was deposed and exiled in 1954 for sympathizing with the National Council of Nigerian Citizens (NCNC). He had come into conflict with Bode Thomas, deputy leader of the Action Group.

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.
