Oluwo of Iwo Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi

The Oluwo of Iwo land, HRM Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi has announced his wedding date to Princess Firdauz Abdullahi of the royal family in Kano.

The wedding according to the e-invite circulating on social media is scheduled to hold on Saturday, March 19, 2022, at the residence of the Madakin of Kano, in the ancient city of Kano.

The wedding invite

The wedding ceremony will be followed by a reception strictly for ladies, which will hold at The Gidan Rumfa, the palace of the Emir of Kano.

The Oluwo in November 2015, at 48, married his first wife, Jamaican Chanel Chin, shortly after he was enthroned.

Their union produced a son named Oduduwa before it ended due to irreconcilable differences.

Ms. Chin is the daughter of Jamaican reggae star Ludlow Chin, also known as “Bobo Zaro,” best known for the song ‘Pain,’ a collaboration with Capleton.

The bride-to-be is said to be 27 years old.

He also revealed that she is Ado Bayero’s granddaughter and the Emir of Kano’s niece.

In February, a letter had surfaced on the internet, suggesting that the Oluwo requested N20m from the governor of Osun state to finance his wedding since it was a ‘marriage of two important institutions in Nigeria.’

The Oluwo however, told BBC that the letter was fake.

Following the controversy that followed the letter, a spokesperson for the Oluwo quickly disowned the letter.

He confirmed the communication did not emanate from the palace.

According to him, the letter lacked the basic in-house style of Oluwo’s correspondences.

“Oluwo always appends his signature while writing the government. Marriage is a personal affair. There is no marriage venture too big for the Oluwo to finance on his own,” the palace official said.
