Olu of Iwo Marriage Crisis Latest: Ex-wife, Chanel Chin leaks Oba Adewale Akanbi’s dirty secrets

Share This


The dimension the marital scuffle between the Oluwo of Iwo and his estranged wife is taking is not getting palatable at all, and it is really getting messy.

This could well be the intense heat being presently felt in the palace of the youthful monarch, Olu of Iwo in Osun state, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, Ilufemiloye Telu 1.

It is, however, no more news that his marriage to Jamaican wife, Chanel Chin, has crashed irretrievably and virtually irreconcilable.

 Interestingly, it was the emperor himself that rushed to the social media to demean the woman he once called his heartthrob.

 The battle of wits started with a statement from the Oluwo’s palace, via one Alli Ibrahim, believed to be the Oba’s spokesman, which reads inter alia: 

“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 any representation or proxy or accordance of respect attached to the sacred stool of Oluwo to her. 

For personal irreconcilable differences, Chanel Chin has ceased to be his Majesty’s Queen. 

We enjoin the public to disregard any business transaction or request with her, using the office of His Majesty.’

Of course, many have been gossiping, although unconfirmed, about the under-current infractions between the couple, until the real story of their now-exposed crashed marriage hit the public domain, which has now revealed unambiguously, through Alli Ibrahim, that the marriage was experiencing the worst of times. 

Conversely, and interestingly too, the now erstwhile Olori Chanel Chin, is now hell-bent to fight back, and is now insisting that she had on many occasions complained to close friends of the controversial monarch, of how he did not adequately take care of her welfare and other privileges accrued to an Olori of her status, during their brief marriage.

Today, the former Queen is bitter that she was ignominiously thrown out of the palace, and the car bought for her by the Oba was retrieved from her, while the monarch even pettily collected some of the expensive clothes and jewelry, which the King bought for her during their brief marriage. 

As you read this, Chanel Chin is angry and embittered at the dehumanizing and debasing treatment meted to her by the controversial monarch, and she is now ready to hit him back, not minding even if the palace burns.

 She has thus started opening a can of very unwholesome worms that are far unbecoming of a traditional ruler of Olu of Iwo’s status for that matter, especially the many dirty secrets of betrayals and treacheries that are not worthy of a king.

 Embattled Chanel Chin was said to have revealed the arbitrary drug life of the monarch to her close allies and how he betrayed those who helped him to the throne, citing mainly the revered Chief Abiola Ogundokun, who, the Olu of Iwo just suddenly dumped and started waging a war of attrition against, no sooner than he got to the majestic seat which he earnestly thirsted for then. 

The last of the story of this royal marital jumble is yet to be heard, Chanel Chin, still has more on the past wild life of her former husband, as she is ready to pay back the Oluwo in his own coin, she now hobnobs and dines with his known enemies, whom the HRM cannot dare to deny his past atrocious habits. 

But what we are hearing is that the rather shaken monarch has resorted to threats and blackmail, which are not obviously working in his favors because Chanel is undaunted in her claims against the Oluwo of Iwo, the Oba’s emissaries to those who could stop Chanel Chin from making real her allegations notwithstanding.
