Olori Badirat Ajoke, wife of the Alaafin, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, has reacted to the rumours of an extra-marital affair with Fuji musician, Wasiu Ayinde Marshal.
A report had surfaced that she was sent packing from the palace after an affair with KWAM 1 was discovered by the monarch Oba Lamidi Adeyemi.
The news came just months after her husband installed KWAM 1 as the Mayegun of Yorubaland.
In a phone conversation, Badirat Ajoke emphatically denied the story.
And she swore by all the Yoruba gods and the orishas of the Alaafin’s palace.
She asked the gods to punish her if she ever had any affair with Wasiu.
She said the rumour mongers, which include Instablog and Chirp Television, had published all manners of falsehood about her in the past.

Watch her interview in Yoruba:
According to our source, Queen Ajoke has indeed left the palace on her own volition and it was over a totally different issue.
The source alleged that: “Badirah was looking for freedom as it wasn’t rosy in the palace. She was only making money from people that give the queens money whenever they needed access to the king.
She and her bestie - who is also Alaafin’s wife - Queen Omoh, recently had issues which later became messy. Badirah knew she was in trouble when the king recently went on a medical trip and took all his young queens except her.
She wanted to leave while he was away but he had instructed the palace guards and senior queens not to allow her leave. She was also stopped from representing the king at certain events. .
She has been packing her belongings in bits out of the palace without anyone knowing. The day she finally left, the Alaafin had requested that no one should entertain visitors during the lockdown but queen Badirah invited one of her friends and hid her in the palace.
The king found out and asked her to tell her friend to leave or he would ask both of them to leave. That was the golden opportunity she was waiting for, so she packed her remaining items and left the palace with her friend.
Currently, the palace is filled with tension as the king has sent words to her father, informing him that his daughter has left the palace and he has no idea of her whereabouts.” The Queen has also removed all references to the palace from her IG bio.
Sarcastically reacting to the claims via a music video on his Instagram page, he stated that many haters have been rooting for his downfall and working towards tarnishing his image since he became the Mayegun.
One of his sons, Femi has threatened Chirp Television, one of the sources of the rumour with libel.
Make sure your source is not dead, while at that be sure to have alot of money https://t.co/tokzOhQ51f— Femi Ayinde Marshal (@FemiMarshall) April 15, 2020
