The Oluwo of Iwo land Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi is set to marry a yet-to-be-disclosed Kano princess.

Akanbi, in 2019, divorced his estranged wife, Chanel Chin.

Ms Chin is the daughter of Jamaican reggae star, Ludlow Chin also known as “Bobo Zaro” who is best known for the song ‘Pain’, a collaboration with Capleton.

He explained that the Canadian-born ex-Queen had attempted to end his life.

Akanbi described their botched union as ‘four years of a fraudulently arranged relationship’’.

But a letter had gone viral on the internet where the royal father purportedly solicited money for the Kano wedding.

The letter dated February 8, 2022 addressed to Osun Governor Adegboyega Oyetola was reportedly received on his behalf by the office of Special Adviser on Chieftaincy Affairs.

The letter reads in parts: “I have the instruction of the His Imperial Majesty, Oba (Dr) Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi, the Oluwo of Iwo to notify you of Oluwo’s decision to marry a princess from Kano Emirate to be precise Ado Bayero Dynasty.

“I wish to remind your Excellency that this kind of royal wedding within two notable traditional institutions in Nigeria will require huge expenses, which necessitate support of the state government financially even logistically.”

But Press Secretary to Oluwo, Alli Ibraheem, said the palace did not author any letter to the Osun State Government, seeking N20m to finance the Monarch’s wedding.

Ibraheem said: “We didn’t author any letter. The letterhead you saw is not the one used by Oluwo. Moreso, if Baba will write government, it will carry his signature.”
