Alake of Egbaland - Proud To Be The Husband Of One Woman, 43 Years And Counting
The Alake of Egbaland HRH Oba Michael Adedotun Gbadebo says he's proud to be married to only one woman, Olori Tokunbo, and so far, they have been married for 43 years. He became the Alake of Egbaland in 2005, and is said to be the only long serving Oba in this country with only one wife.
The Oba revealed recently at a wedding where he was the chairman that he still shares the same bed with his wife and mother of his children, this was after he praised her for being an incredible partner. He said they have a strong bond and he never had the need to marry another woman.
The 71-year-old Oba said his grandfather had 24 wives, while his own father had 3 but he decided one wife was enough for him.
He adds that despite the fact that he was an Oba, with many traditions and customs governing his life and behaviors, he and his wife have always shared same room and same bed and that is how it will remain till death do them part.
