The flamboyant Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi, Telu 1 has sent his Jamaican wife Chanel Chin packing from his palace.
The controversial Oba says Chanel Chin is now an ex-Queen of Iwoland.
Cogent reason hadn’t been given for his action at the time of this report, his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Mr Alli Ibraheem confirmed the development.
“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.
“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. We wish her the best in her new journey,” a statement by Ibraheem said.
Oba Akanbi ascended the throne of his forefathers in November 10, 2015 and got married to his Jamaican wife Chanel Chin.
In an interview in 2017 by The Punch, the Canada-based fashionista queen had said he would be unhappy if Oluwo married another wife.
When he was asked what she would do, she replied, ” Hmmm. It is the culture here and there is nothing I can do.
“Although I won’t be happy, I don’t think he wants to marry another wife. I will accept it because it is part of the culture here.
“Although it is part of the culture here but things are changing. Polygamy is giving way to monogamy in this modern time and I think it is a good one.”
Could it mean the socialite Oba is planning to take another wife?
More to come.
