The dismissed queen of Iwoland, Queen Chanel Chin has opened up on her crashed marriage to the king of Iwo, Oba Abdurrosheed Adewale Akanbi Telu 1.
The Jamaican queen, who was sent packing from the palace two weeks ago alongside her child, has chosen to remain in Nigeria and fight back.
Recall that Queen Chanel was sent packing from the palace without food or money as she embarked on a trip to Lagos from Iwo.
The embattled queen sought help from friends and associates of her former husband and she is currently being accommodated in a very good hotel in Lagos with her toddler, Oduduwa.
This morning, the estranged wife, Chanel posted a message on her Instagram page. Applauding her silence since this saga begun, she also threatened to speak on her experience as a queen in Iwo.
“Maturity speaks. Since the Oluwo of Iwo has gone to the media to air his dirty laundry, I have remained silent. He has gone on a personal mission to destroy my character with fabricated stories….i have remain silent. As a mother of a small baby, all of this is unnecessary and very immature. Out of respect for the stool i have not spoken of what i went through in the last 4 years. Please let MATURITY rule. If a king does not RESPECT himself or his stool….who else will? People of God, let us be honest with ourselves, this is not the Ist or the last time that we have watched this individual fabricate and publicly destroy someone….kings are supposed to uplift and not oppress. love and light.” ((sic)
To this, the King responded in the comment section with a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary:
“The Horse is waiting but you can’t force the passenger!!! To who cares to listen….ticket has been provided since 18th of December, 2019, 5 star hotel fully paid till date of travel!! And ask yourself a question….can a Canadian be stranded in Nigeria even if a ticket is not provided?? The Candaian embassy and Government is one of the most responsible in the world. If someone chooses to stay back for whatever reason, its none of our business. The needful has been done by providing the necessary travelling arrangements.”
Prior to this, the king declared her seat vacant and referred to her as an ex queen.
Penultimate week, in a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to Oluwo Palace, Alli Ibraheem, the monarch said Chanel has ceased to be his queen due to an irreconcilable difference.
The statement reads:
“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.
“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.”
