One of the daughters of the departed Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi on Wednesday honoured her late father by celebrating her birthday in his outfit.
Princess Taibat Adeyemi, who is a former Commissioner in Oyo State, revealed that she wore his clothes to show how much she misses him.
In a post on her social media pages, the Princess explained how she would like to celebrate her father on her birthday by wearing his clothes and how much she misses him.
She said, “The saying goes ‘you never know what you have until you lose it’. Not in my case, I’ve always known, I’ve always known how much you loved me. I’ve always known what you meant to me. I’ve always known who you are and I am, who I am today because of all you’ve
“In celebration of my birthday today, I will like to honour my father. It’s only fitting that I wear his clothes, his cane. Hmmm, saying I miss you is an understatement of the century. Each big event reminds me of what I’ve lost. Ileya, mother’s birthday, my birthday, your birthday. I keep wondering when it’ll truly feel to celebrate things again (like I used to before), everything is different now…HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME”, she added.
Recall that Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, who was the third from the Alowodu Ruling House, died in the late hours of Friday, April 22nd at the Afe Babalola University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti.
Weeks after, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III, the late Alaafin of Oyo was given a befitting celebration of life ceremony weeks after, by the Oyo State government.
