'I'm married to only one woman & we still share same bed 43 years later" - Alake of Egbaland

Unlike many title holders, the Alake of Egbaland HRH Oba Michael Adedotun Gbadebo is married to only one woman, Olori Tokunbo, and they have been married for 43 years. They say he's the only long serving Oba in this country with only one wife. He became Alake of Egbaland in 2005.

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 Oba who is 71, said his grandfather had 24 wives, while his own father had 3 but he decided one wife was enough and despite the fact that he was an Oba, he and his wife have always shared same room and same bed and that is how it will remain till death do them part. Aww, what a great man!
