Oluwo of Iwo’s marriage to Jamaican crashes

Oluwo of Iwo Land Oba Abdul-Rasheed Akanbi

The Oluwo of Iwo land, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, has parted ways with Jamaican wife, Chanel Chin.

A statement on Sunday by the chief press secretary of the monarch, Alli Ibraheem, said the incident was necessitated by ‘personal irreconcilable differences.’


“This is to inform the general public most especially friends and associates of the Oluwo of Iwoland, His Imperial Majesty, Oba (Dr.) Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, Telu I, that Ms Chanel Chin is an ex-queen of his majesty,” the statement said.

“This information is necessary for the attention of the general public to avoid representation on proxy or accordance of respect attached to the sacred stool of Oluwo to her. For personal irreconcilable differences, Chanel Chin ceased to be his Majesty’s queen. We equally enjoin the public to disregard any business transaction or request with her using the office of his majesty,” it added.

The throne wished her ‘the best in her new journey.’


Oba Akanbi is described by many as Nigeria’s most stylish monarch.

The monarch is now expected to find himself a new wife.
