Alaafin of Oyo’s daughter, Princess Rukayat Adeteju Adeyemi in a Nikkah ceremony which took place at the Aganju Royal Forecourt, Alaafin’ palace, and in the presence of His Imperial Majesty, the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III Iku Babayeye, tied the knot with heartrob Hakeem Adesina Folarin.
The couple were pronounced husband and wife to the admiration and joy of the huge crowd of witnesses, after the prayers. Here are photos below;
My father was a boxer and he jogged a lot. I remember that he would lead us in morning exercise around Oyo town. Sometimes, when we were returning from an occasion, he would tell us to come down from the vehicles and trek home. It happened recently when he ordered everyone to trek to the palace from Durban Stadium. He still visits the gym, he is still full of energy and jogs two miles every week and walks back to the palace from the stadium. Approximately, he jogs for about three hours each time he goes to the stadium. But doctors are telling him to slow down now because his body is not in the state it was many years ago.
Recall that the renowned 80-year-old monarch and culture custodian, Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III became the latest father in town, after he just welcomed a set of twins with one of his young wives, Memunat.
