One line struck a nerve, “Why do I have to answer to questions of ‘What is wrong with Freeze’?” It is crystal clear, this colleague is fed up. Just as fed up as most of us, really!
Freeze and Dotun are on-air personalities at the same radio station, Cool FM. It’s safe to say that Dotun knows Daddy Freeze on a more personal level than the rest of us, at least they have a working relationship. So, if Dotun took it upon himself to publicly call Freeze out for belittling Yoruba women, then he must have good reasons. But no, we’re not taking sides.
A certain Chiekezi Dozie shared his opinion thus: “If you are Yoruba and you are male, and you want to be successful in life, marry an Igbo woman.” Totally his opinion!
Freeze who is infamous for weighing on issues [and his largely unpopular opinion] decided to elaborate on the topic by “kinda agreeing” and exalting Igbo ladies far above their Yoruba counterparts and as is typical of Freeze, he didn’t exactly use the nicest words. But hey, he explicitly said all he knows of Yoruba girls is from his “little” experience.
But Dotun came to the rescue of the Yoruba female folk and we learnt a few things from his response: that Daddy Freeze’s article was classless; the man is going out of line and losing focus; he’s either a sycophant or a selfish man; and yes, he puts the people close to him in awkward positions when they have to defend him every other time.
This isn't out of any classification of words or belief but out of something I utterly see as a Lil disrespectful and out of context. I'll address it. @daddyfreeze I have known you for a few years right from the days of seemingly finding my feet in broadcasting to this very day of God's lift and I have never exchanged my standard with bringing you down but THIS! your piece about YORUBA WOMEN is absolutely classless. I have been your cheerleader from day 1, called u tonnes of times on the things you write about especially when it is out of line just to hear your side but THIS!! Haba! You have a daughter and sister like I do that are YORUBA. Are yours unclean, disrespectful, are they failing in their marriage, argues a lot, don't treat their husband better, not beautiful, problematic, not sexy; ?????? Opinions are ultimately determined by feelings or personal experiences and not by the intellect. It still does not mean what isn't good for the goose can't be good for the gander. Freeze you are going out of line and losing focus and it affects a few of us that look up to you. Write your piece and enjoy it but don't disregard our positions as brothers, dads, husbands to YORUBA women. If yours wasn't good doesn't mean ours won't be especially when it isn't in your place to generalize. You will say it's your opinion, well this is mine too. Galatians 1:10 – For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. You are great at what you do but stop pleasing this people or maybe yourself cos it's a Lil selfish and puts all of us in the most awkward position. Why do I have to answer to questions of "what is wrong with freeze" .. well, I don't know about what is wrong with you, I just know something is wrong with your piece about YORUBA WOMEN. Take care and have a blessed Sunday. I am HUMAN #AllTribeRock #iLLEGAL
Just when we were applauding Dotun, Freeze returned with a comeback. Started on a philosophical note, then went ahead to defend his opinion and mildly stated that Dotun might be searching for trouble where it didn’t exist.
Trust that the drama has escalated and at this point, we do not know who the management of Cool FM will be firing tomorrow morning. It’s obvious that there’s beef between the two colleagues and one (you know who) cannot continue to pretend that all is well.
Before you start thinking that they had reached curtain call, Dotun went back to Instagram sha. This time, he took it to the streets. He called Freeze’s defense stupid and unrealistic and ends with “who you epp?”. Well, this we agree with.
We don't eat from banters. Na food be that? Ko kan aiye mehn! There are so many things we haven't seen in our lifetime that we still pray to God to give us, we don't find them in stereotypical statements, comments or opinions. It's in the BANK. The word "it is my opinion" has been the most overused line in this day and age. Someone wants to defend something that is clearly stupid, unrealistic then it is allowed. Every man should have a boundary and if we must say all the things on our mind, na die be that. You are not what you write, you are what you do. When someone represents all of us and decides to lose the ball every time then you will know what I mean. Let's all demonstrate what's possible, create leaders and not followers. Aiye! kan lo wa …. am I allowed to say this is my opinion too. Honestly, nobody cares! … pls who you epp? You don baff? ? No time. #DemonsOfAllTribeMatter
Freeze has gone private on Instagram and it looks like Dotun is having the last laugh, but we know this is not the last of this banter. We wait!
