The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, has made his first public appearance in company of his newest wife, Chioma Adeyemi.
The 82-year-old monarch married Chioma as his 13th wife amid reports of marital crisis rocking his palace in the last few months.
Olori Chioma will now replaced Queen Badirat Ajoke, who was allegedly sent packing from the palace over allegations of adultery with a popular fuji musician, Wasiu Ayinde Marshal (KWAM 1 De Ultimate).
The Alaafin of Oyo stepped out with Chioma, making their first public appearance together at the installation of Chief Tomori Williams, as the Aare Onikoyi of Yorubaland.
The ceremony took place in his historical Palace in Oyo State last weekend, and the event was graced by prominent people in the society.
The 82-year-old monarch attended the event with all his 13 wives, who were looking ravishing in white lace and matching white headgear.
His new wife, Chioma, stood out among the queens as she stayed at the left-hand side of the king when he walked in. Her identity was unknown initially because she is a new bride.
However, when fuji musician,King Wasiu Ayinde , started eulogizing the king in his musical performance, he mentioned “Olori Chioma Adeyemi”.
This raised eyebrows and guests started questioning when the King married Chioma, who is now the first Eastern girl that would join the train of Queens in Alaafin’s Palace.
A report by City People indicates that the Alaafin of Oyo got married to Chioma last year. Although she is yet to embark on a 9-month course.
