Chanel Chin, ex-wife of Oluwo of Iwoland , Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi has made some shocking revelations regarding her crashed marriage to the Monarch.
Chanel accused the monarch of rape, deception amid other damning allegations levelled against Oba Akanbi
In an interview on GIO TV, Chanel narrated the incident that led to her marriage and her inability to cope with the deception ended it.
Chanel disclosed she arrived Nigeria in December 2015 on a tourist visit with friends. To further strengthen her knowledge about the African culture, she attended Oluwo’s coronation in Jan 2016 against the advice of her friends who referred to Iwo as a “bush” area.
She insisted on attending the coronation as she had never witnessed such ceremony in Canada where she lived all her life.
She returned to Lagos after the coronation and was fortunate to meet the Oluwo again in another event in Ikeja held by an unnamed Lagos Monarch. She disclosed she got introduced to Oba Akanbi at this event on February 2.
According to the Jamaican ex-queen, she retired early to her room because she had too much to drink. But she was beyond shocked after she woke up at 3am to find herself completely naked under Oluwo of Iwoland.
At this point, she said, “no no no. Get off me.”
However, her pleas were dismissed with Oba Akanbi saying no woman can refuse a King if he “extends his leg” over her.
Chanel Chin was quoted saying;
“Tell the people that you raped me the first night you met me. One month later, I missed my menses and I was pregnant.”
To prove she was saying the truth, Chanel asked Nigerians to do the maths saying she had sexual intercourse with Oluwo in February and gave birth to her son in November.
“November from February is 9 months.” Chanel said
Stilll recovering from the shock of the rape, she followed Oluwo to his land Iwo where she discovered the King had no palace or house to his name. She disclosed she was squatting in a certain Barrister Atanda’s home.
“That’s when I met Oluwo, February second. He raped me and because he raped me, the next day, he said to me, ‘we’re going to the palace. we’re going to Iwo and I’ll make you queen.’ So I went with him.
“The very next day, when we got to Iwo, there was no palace. The palace didn’t even have a roof. There was no palace. We were staying in one Barrister Atanda’s home. He’s also based in the UK. He can attest to this.
“There was no palace, there was no royal… there was nothing.”
Chanel Chin claimed she received many threats from several women who the King had also promised marriage after sleeping with them.
“There was even a family that came, they were so upset because Oluwo disvirgined one girl from that town and promised that family marriage. So, when that family got to find out one Canadian was with this King, that is when he went to the news.
“Because he promised a lot of women… He started sleeping around with a lot of women, from Lagos to Iwo to Osogbo, to Ibadan. He was sleeping with a lot of women and promising them Olori.
“So, when people started to find out, ‘oh there’s one Jamaican woman living with him’, that is when he went to the press and put this fake news about his wife from Canada, that he married me in Canada and that I came to Nigeria to claim my rightful spot, which was a lie.
“So, even before I stepped foot in that palace, I already had a gang of enemies.”
Reacting to allegations that she is a “runz girl” aNigerian term for prostitute,
Chanel said “Go and ask your king that if I’m a runs girl, why did he put the crown of your ancestors on my head. I was wearing the crown of your ancestors. So, go and ask your king that. Why did he put the crown of your ancestors on the head of a runs girl.”
