After 4yrs, Oluwo divorces Jamaican wife, Chanel Chin

The Oluwo of Iwo, Abdulrosheed Akanbi, has announced his divorce from his Jamaican wife, Chanel Chin.

A statement by Oluwo’s Press Secretary, Alli Ibraheem, obtained on Sunday, said the couple ended the marriage “after irreconcilable differences.”

The statement from Oluwo’s palace reads in part, “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.”

Oba Akanbi married Chanel Chin shortly after he ascended the throne in November 2015.

The marriage between the royal father and the Jamaican produced a son named Oduduwa.
