Alaafin of Oyo Nigeria, Oba Lamidi Adeyimi III, has been spotted exercising in his palace.

In the photos going viral on social media, the 83-year-old monarch, who donned a dark suit and white cap, is seen doing push-ups, stretches and other basic exercise routines.

“Man wants to remain healthy to be chopping kpekus,” netizen said.

Another said, “Wow !! that is good and bold step. Well done Oba.”

“He will still marry another wife.”
