The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III has revealed how he ended up with over seven beautiful young women as his queens. In a chat with City People magazine, the Alaafin said he didn’t set out to marry so many wives. He noted that they came on their own volition.

He added that after helping to sponsor their education, they decided not to leave. They chose to stay with him.
“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.

“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.” the Alaafin added.
