Prof Yemi Osinbajo is married to Oladolapo Osinbajo, the grand daughter of Obafemi Awolowo. Her mother is Otunba Olubusola Soyode, one of the children of Awolowo, who was one of the founding fathers of Nigeria.Obafemi Awolowo had given the couple his blessings to get married 15 years before they actually did.
In an interview with The Sun newspaper, the vice president’s younger brother Akin Osinbajo said: “Papa stood up and faced our parents and said one of the boys should marry one of his girls (that’s granddaughters) And Mama said that can’t happen. But Papa said in Israel cousins do marry. That was about 15 years before they actually married. By the time they were marrying Papa had passed on. When the two of them came to say they want to marry later and the family said they could not marry because they are blood relations, Mama said Awolowo said they should not stop them from marrying, that Papa had said it while he was alive that they would marry.”
They’ve been married for 29 years.
