Olori Folashade Adeyemi, one of the wives of the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi said that her husband, despite his age, is more loving, caring and affectionate than most young men.
In fact, she said despite his busy schedule, he finds time to assist her in the kitchen sometimes.
She also added that, he is a very intelligent and knowledgeable man and he always encourage her and her kids to read.
Ayaba Folashade Adeyemi, the third wife of Alaafin of Oyo revealed this to The Nation.
He is wise and intelligent. Most times when he is not in the office or attending to visitors, he is in the library reading. He reads a lot and encourages us to read too. At times he would tell you to look for the meaning of a word; you will be surprised that he would tell you the meaning of that word as it is written in the dictionary or on Google.
He is such a wonderful man. His depth of knowledge is unrivaled.
He is also a unique Yoruba monarch. He is popular and brilliant, and there is no place he cannot go as a Yoruba oba. Alaafin is the first among the Yoruba obas. The way he does his things are different.
Kabiyesi is very romantic. If you are not close to him, you won’t know that he is loving and kind. At times when I’m in the kitchen, he would come and offer to assist. While at the college, he would dish food for me and instruct the driver to bring it to school.
The difference in our age gap has not stopped him from showing affection. He shows affection more than some of these young men you see outside there. What a young man can do out there, Kabiyesi does better.”
