Ajaka was an
Oyoking who was twice on the throne. His father was Oranyanor Oranmiyan, and his brother according to the historian Samuel Johnson was Sango.
Ajaka lived in a fierce and warring age, but he was originally a man of peaceful disposition. This led to him being deposed and his brother made king after political encroachment from local
kings. He was later called on to the throne after the death of Sango. In his later years, he changed from being mild mannered to a warlike king, and was similar to his brother. His Basorun during the second reign was Salekoudi, and it was during this time the artistic deficient drum, Ogidigbo was introduced to Oyo. The drum was used in great festivals where the Alaafinand the Basorun were present.
