The naming ceremony of the set of twins that were welcomed into the home of 80-year-old Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Adeyemi Lamidi, took place yesterday April 23rd.
The monarch was looking all elated as he named his babies in the presence of their mothers, Olori Memunat and Olori Badirat and other family members. See more photos below.
Not many people know that Alaafin of Oyo, HRM Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III has lovely children that are doing wonderfully well for themselves, across different sectors, apart from the likes of Prince Akeem Adeyemi AKA Skimeh, the two-term Chairman, Atiba Local Government and the present honourable representing Afijio/Oyo East/ Oyo West/ Atiba Federal Constituency in the House of Reps; Princess Adetutu Adeyemi-Akhigbe, the Honourable Commissioner of Culture in Governor Ajimobi’s first term and Princess Folasade Adeyemi, a cultural ambassador and CEO, Arewa House of Culture.
These three seem to be the most prominent out of Alaafin’s children.
