Alaafin of Oyo… Throwback
Before you mention five top monarchs in Nigeria, the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi’s name and title must pop up!

He is one of the most revered kings in Nigeria and most especially, the Yoruba kingdom.

Being on the throne of his fore fathers for about forty seven (47)
years, the great King already has a picture in the mind and heart of
many who know of him.
Hence
it would be a thing of great surprise to see that the King was once a
young man before he attained his present great age of 79 and very
dignified status.
These
old photos of Alaafin of Oyo, Iku Baba Yeye shows a much younger Oba
Adeyemi before he ascended the throne and shortly after he was crowned.

The youngest wife of the king shared the photos in celebration of her
beloved husband and we could not help but bring the photos here for
your viewing delight.
Behold the epic throwback photos of Iku baba Yeye, Alase Ikeji Orisa, Oba Adeyemi Alaafin of Oyo!
Alaafin of Oyo

Long live the king.
