Oluwo to buy chelsea


The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, has said he would buy Chelsea FC if he would buy any club because of his passion for the football club.

Oba Akanbi, a sport lover, said he grew up indulging in sports.

“I’ve been playing football since my nursery and primary school days. I like table tennis too. I played during break time at school,” the monarch said in an interview with Punch.

He continues, “I played as a right winger. During my time, it was tough to get parental consent to play football. At that time, football wasn’t something they would advise you to go into. In fact, if your parents saw you playing football, it made you look unserious. So, my time was not a period when people considered making a living from football.

“There was a time that I got the beating of my life, when my mother saw me while she was coming back home from work. We used to look out to know if she was coming or not but that day, she caught me. After then, I only played football and table tennis during break time in school. When I got home, it was to eat, sleep and read my books.
