"Emperor Telu, The 1st Of His kind" That's How Funky King, Adewale Akanbi Wishes To Be Addressed
Funky King and traditional ruler of Iwo, Osun state - Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi doesn't want to be addressed as a simply a monarch.

He wants to be referred to as an Emperor.

And not just an ordinary one, but the first of his kind.

His preferred form of address is disclosed as "Emperor Telu 1" of Iwo "Empire".

Naturally he wants his wife to be refer to as "Empress".

Ironically, historical checks revealed his town was never an empire but a smaller part of a bigger unit.

And though a first class monarch, there are others who outranked him in the state, especially Ooni of Ife  - Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi.

"Where the thought or title emperor came from, i dont know...even the Ooni as revered as he is, isn't using it...I think it is an ego thing" a source observed.

A check on his instagram page revealed that Oba Adekanbi as already gone public with his self chosen title of "Emperor Telu 1".
