Ideally, the phrase beautiful bride is commonly used for women but Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi currently fits the definition perfectly, considering that he has become highly in demand since he separated from his Jamaican wife, Chanel Chin, in a rather controversial manner.
It was shocking and rather funny when the monarch had to alert women never to fall prey to fake social media accounts. The scam alert came after the palace received several complaints, calls and text messages that they had been scammed on social media! Scammers had opened a number of social media accounts in the name of Oluwo to perpetrate the fraudulent acts and discredit the palace’s image.
Oluwo also emphasised that he was not looking for a wife in public domain and security operatives had been briefed to take necessary actions against the fraudsters.
The reason any young lady will want the king is understandable. As a king, he possesses a large degree of influence and affluence, which is what most women desire in a man. In Yoruba land, the role of a queen in the palace is as important as that of the king.
A lasting solution to this, many have argued, would be when the colourful monarch finally announces his new queen.
