The Oluwo of Iwo, Abdulrosheed Akanbi, has announced a break up with his Canadian-born queen, Chanel Chin.

The monarch, on Sunday, declared that Chanel Chin henceforth ceased to be his wife and thus should be addressed as an ex-queen.

According to a press statement sent made available by the monarch’s spokesperson, Alli Ibraheem, the separation was borne out of “personal irreconcilable differences.”

“This information is necessary for the attention of the general public to avoid representation on proxy and 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.”

Recall that Chin, had in a 2017 interview expressed joy that she is the only wife of the monarch.
