What a young man can do, Kabiyesi does better declares Alaafin of Oyo’s wife

What a young man can do out there, Kabiyesi does better declares Alaafin of Oyo’s wife Aishat Adeyemi.

One of the wives to 81-year-old Alaafin of Oyo, Ayaba Aishat Folashade Adeyemi, has showered encomium on him, describing him as very romantic.

In a recent chat with The Nation Newspaper  the mother-of -three who met the foremost traditional ruler during an excursion to the palace at 25, revealed why he is far different from most men.

“He is wise and intelligent. Most times when he is not in the office or attending to visitors, he is in the library reading. He reads a lot and encourages us to read too.”

What a young man can do out there, Kabiyesi does better

At times he would tell you to look for the meaning of a word; you will be surprised that he would tell you the meaning of that word as it is written in the dictionary or on Google.

He is such a wonderful man. His depth of knowledge is unrivaled. He is also a unique Yoruba monarch. He is popular and brilliant, and there is no place he cannot go as a Yoruba Oba. Alaafin is the first among the Yoruba Obas. The way he does his things are different.

“Kabiyesi is very romantic. If you are not close to him, you won’t know that he is loving and kind. At times when I’m in the kitchen, he would come and offer to assist. While at the college, he would dish food for me and instruct the driver to bring it to school.”

“The difference in our age gap has not stopped him from showing affection. He shows affection more than some of these young men you see outside there. What a young man can do out there, Kabiyesi does better, she said.”

I trust Nigerians, they will come for her. I already saw a woman’s comment asking get why get husband shops for a new wife every month if he possesses all the qualities she mentioned. Some people have no joy.
