Queen Anu is one of the beautiful wives of the Alaafin Of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi.
She is very stylish and loves to look good all the time. She is always gorgeously and glamorously attired to parties.
What has life been like as an Oloori of one of the respected traditional rulers in Yorubaland?
It has been nice, she says. We have all adjusted to it. lt is a big responsibility. As an Oloori you have a role to play in the affairs of the palace.
Who is Queen Anu? We asked her this question recently and she revealed a lot about her life.
My Names are Ayaba (Queen) Anuoluwapo R. Adeyemi. I’m from Osun State, Ede town to be precise. I was born and bred in Ibadan. I was born in the 1990s , I attended IMG Moor Plantation for my primary school education. I finished my secondary school education from Benatad Royal College Johnson Avenue Oluyole Ibadan. I’m currently studying Political Science at the University Of Ibadan. I’m in 300 Level.
I developed my fashion by reading different fashion Magazine, checking different fashion blogs on INSTAGRAM and have always loved fashion since I was very small I love colours and when you do you will be able to combine different designs and it will come out well.
To be since I believe in the saying that uneasy lies the heads that wears a crown. It hasn’t been easy since I wasn’t born into it but I believe nobody was born into something but we try and develop ourselves whenever we find ourselves in such positions or situations. Basically, I thank God even though it has been demanding but at the same time, it has been easy too. Being Alaafin’s wife has groomed me culturally.
Does she run a personal business? No, she says. Not easy running a personal business because, all the Ayabas have their traditional responsible roles.
I do charity work through my foundation underground. Glory be to God, I have grown to appreciate little things in life.
