The Alaafin of Oyo Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III has revealed how he married his young wives.
Recently, the monarch took another young wife into his custody and many have been wondering how he was able to woo the young ladies who can be passed for his children.
In a chat with City People, Iku baba yeye as he is fondly called revealed how he got married to his young wives.
According to the monarch, he didn’t want to marry so many wives as they came on their own. He noted that after seeing the ladies through school, they decide not to leave again.
“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,” he said.
“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.”
