Late Alaafin’s queen Damilola seeks love again on dating show

Damilola, one of the runaway wives of the late Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, appeared on a dating show recently in search of love.

The 26-year-old fled the Alaafin’s palace in November 2020 for reasons not known to the public. About a year later, she wrote a public apology seeking the king’s forgiveness and asking to return to the palace on the claim that she was misled by friends.

Dami, as she is known for short, was a guest on a recent episode of a matchmaking show of Yoruba actor Kehinde Adams also known as Lege Miami.

The actor hosts a live show on Instagram where females and males seeking love can strut their stuff for potential suitors.

Last Friday, the former Olori appeared on the show.

Lege Miami described her as a “single mother” and “Iyawo of the late Alaafin of Oyo.”

He then instructed her to place her phone firmly, move away from her phone, turn on her light and change from her Abaya to something more revealing.

Lege specifically asked her to wear a short and round neck top.

Dami, during the hook-up show, said she wanted true love and a husband, and Lege intermittently interjected the conversation reminding her to speak in English and not Yoruba.
