No Love Lost Between Oba Elegushi, Oluwo of Iwo

May 19, (THEWILL)- The once congenial relationship between the Elegushi of Ikate land, Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi and the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi, has ended on a bad note..

It comes as a surprise to many society watchers who have observed that the traditional rulers, who used to be best of friends, no longer see eye to eye. No one can tell exactly what the problem between them is, only that they are both now, two poles apart. So close were they at some point that one could never have imagined that their bond would be broken.

The duo were fond of accompanying each other to society events and both enjoyed nighttime activities together. Their bond was such that when Oba Akanbi had marital issues with one of his erstwhile queens, Jamaican born Chanel Chin, Oba Elegushi played a prominent role in ensuring that the marriage lasted for as long as it did. He was reportedly the glue that kept the marriage intact until it collapsed like a pack of badly arranged cards.. In fact, the erstwhile queen once revealed that she was introduced to Oba Akanbi by a prominent Lagos king during a coronation party for him (Oba Akanbi) in Lagos. She (Chanel Chin) was an invited guest to the party. She however did not mention the name of the king. The cracks in the friendship of the two traditional rulers became noticeable when over a year ago, specifically during the 7th coronation anniversary of Oba Akanbi cum book presentation event, Oba Elegushi was conspicuously absent. For a king who doesn’t pass on an opportunity to celebrate with his close friends and personally attending their events, it was telling. Hopefully, this new wave of reconciliation pervading the social space hits them to put their differences aside.
