Adbulrasheed Akanbi, oluwo of Iwoland, has announced the deposal of Chanel Chin, his Jamaican wife, as the queen of the Yoruba kingdom.

The monarch took to his Instagram page on Sunday to disclose that the Jamaican, who doubles as a daughter to Ludlow Chin, Reggae star better known as ‘Bobo Zaro’, “is now an ex-queen of Iwoland.

While he gave no reason for the divorce beyond “personal irreconcilable differences”, Oluwo said the announcement is to forestall any representation on proxy with regard to the respect attached to the sacred stool of the oluwo.

“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,” the post read.

“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.”

Oluwo’s deposal of Chin comes more than four years after the duo tied the knot in an institution that officially conferred a royal status on the latter as the legitimate queen of Iwo, a traditional city in Osun state.

In 2017, Chin had registered her reservations about polygamy, stating that she wouldn’t be happy, should her husband decide to marry another wife.
