THE Oluwo of Iwo land, Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi is set to marry a Kano princess, Firdauz Abdullahi.
The wedding is set to hold on March 19, 2022, at the residence of Madakin Kano, Yola Quarters in Kano State.
A reception strictly for the ladies follows at the palace of the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero.
Oluwo had earlier this year in an interview with BBC, confirmed his upcoming wedding, stating that the date will be made public soon.
The wedding date was announced in a statement via his official Facebook page on Tuesday, March 8.
The statement described the bride-to-be as a “matrimonial material and morally upright princess.”
The post reads: “History Made: Royalty Meets, Weds Royalty. A great wife, matrimonial material and morally upright princess becoming an empress.
“The glory is not mine alone. It belongs to all of us who trust in our way, an undiluted monarchy that resigns only to God, The Creator. We reference God for everything.”
The monarch had in 2019 divorced his Canadian-born wife, Chanel Chin, over irreconcilable differences.
