His Royal Majesty Oba Lamidi Adeyemi 111, the Alaafin of Oyo, is one of the most respected kings in the Yorubaland. The highly revered monarch is very vast in Yoruba tradition and culture as well other areas of life generally. It would be difficult to beat him to anything in discussions or arguments; he has a bit of knowledge about virtually everything. He is highly intelligent and meticulous and has a good memories. He quotes date and time of past events without checking the books. In fact, he is an encyclopedia of knowledge and wisdom.
It also an open secret that, as a traditional ruler, Alaafin loves women; he has them in his kitty both old and young and the beauty you could ever think of. He also loves them light and slim mostly.
As Alaafin has good number of wives however, so also he has wonderful children. While some are still young, some are grown up men and women who doing excellently well in their various chosen endeavours, politics, business, entertainment and what have you. While some of them are in the public glare, some love to operate from the background. In fact, we hardly hear about some of them. Interestingly, most of Alaafin's children are their father's carbon copy, they always take after their father's brilliancy as well.
