Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi and his wife, Firdaus, have welcomed their first child.
Oba Akanbi got married to the kano-born princess, Firdaus, in March 2022, three years after after ending his marriage with a Jamaican, Chanel Chin.
The Queen has kept a low profile since, as she was hardly seen in public except on a few occasions when he received guests in the palace with her husband.
Announcing the arrival of the new baby in a statement obtained late on Wednesday, the press secretary to the monarch, Alli Ibrahim, said, “Oluwo expressed appreciation to Olodumare (God) for blessing my home with the handsome, promising child.
“Carrying a baby for months is tasking. I congratulate my queen on the arrival of a new child. She deserves accolades.
“I have strong trust in whatever comes out of her womb. The child shall be greater and be prosperous than me.
“Once again, congratulations to my beautiful, elegant, respectful and loving queen Firdaus.”
