Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, the Alaafin of Oyo Kingdom, on Tuesday turned 81 and celebrated it with a birthday soiree.

The event kicked off with interdenominational service held by major churches and religious bodies in Oyo to honour the highly revered king.

Scores of royal fathers across Yorubaland also stormed the ancient town to celebrate with the man of energy and wisdom.

The oba's initial plan was to have a lowkey celebration but the event later turned huge following the influx of well-wishers and visitors who came to pay homage to Iku Baba Yeye of Oyo Kingdom.

Oba Lamidi was seen dancing to the traditional talking drum and sekere, as happy Oyo indigenes gathered at the palace to entertain the Alaafin on his birthday.

The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, welcomed another baby boy with one of his wives, Queen Mojisola, last year when he celebrated his 80th birthday.
