Meet King Rasheed Adewale Akanbi, the new Oluwo Of Iwoland in Osun State.
King Abdul Rasheed, now known as the Imperial Oluwo of the Iwo Kingdom in Nigeria, after his ascendancy on November 10, 2015, had met the 32-year-old Chanel in Canada, where he resided before his ascension.When the then Prince Akanbi informed her he would be crowned as king in Nigeria, Chanel promised to return home with him and the rest is history. The 32-year-old Toronto-based Jamaican factory worker is now the Queen Oluwo Of Iwo.
She also added that she is yet to overcome the language barrier. “I know some Yoruba words. Everyday, I am still learning. Another challenge is that the food is quite different from our mouth- watering Jamaican dishes.”
