The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, is set to tie knot with Princess Firdauz Abdullahi in Kano State on Saturday, March 19, 2022.
The invitation card obtained on Wednesday indicated that the wedding would take place at the residence of the Madakin Kano, Yola Quarters, Kano.
According to his spokesman, Alli Ibrahim, Oluwo because of his position as a paramount ruler might not be in Kano for the wedding.
“Baba is not likely to be there (in Kano) as a paramount ruler. They will bring the wife to him in Iwo. There is no cause for alarm,” Ibrahim noted.
Oluwo divorced his Jamaican wife, Chanel Chin, in December 2019, and since then, the monarch has not been openly associated with any woman.
Prior to when the official invite was released, a letter had initially surfaced, where the controversial Oba had reportedly sought for financial assistance from the Osun State Government towards the wedding.
But palace, however, dismissed the letter, saying it did not come from the monarch.
