Daddy Freeze, who is well known for heavily criticising Nigerian church leaders over tithes and other matters relating to the Christian faith, recently tackled Bishop Oyedepo for saying women to submit to their husbands.
Pastor Ibiyeomie in his reaction during a sermon over the weekend then called out Daddy Freeze for ‘insulting’ his spiritual father.
He called Freeze a bastard and cursed the day the media personality was born with a threat to arrest and ‘deal with him’.
Reacting via his YouTube channel, Freeze accused Ibiyeomie of racism, discrimination, and threat to life.
Freeze began in his video saying, “Even if you have a gun to my head, I’ll still speak the truth”.
He said he was “devastated” by Pastor Ibiyeomie’s video because of the “content” and he went on to reveal what part of the video troubled him.
Freeze pointed out that he did not insult Bishop Oyedepo as Pastor Ibiyeomie claims, but simply drew the religious leader’s attention to a part of the bible.
The broadcaster said;
Correcting the scripture is not an insult. Christ was criticized, Peter was criticized, Paul was criticized, even the Pharisees were criticized, so there’s no way you’re going to preach a message from the scriptures that you’ll not get criticisms.
Condemning Ibiyeomie for likening him to the Somalians in a derogatory manner, Freeze expressed;
I find it very devastating that just to get to me, Pastor Ibieomie will drag the whole Somalia nation. I’m very proud to associate myself with Somalians because they’re a beautiful people. It is hate speech to undermine them with derogatory words, like there’s anything wrong with the Somalians.
Freeze also drew the attention of the public and the law enforcement agencies to the threat to his life, saying;
Pastor Ibiyeomie, I don’t know if you realize that a threat to life is a criminal offence. If anything happens to me, I hope you know who to hold responsible.
He also condemned Ibiyeomie for undermining the broadcasting profession just to undermine his source of income.
You went on again to undermine the noble profession of broadcasting. I’m a proud broadcaster for the last 25 years. I’ve dedicated my life to this beautiful, noble profession.
The OAP said he takes his children to the radio station to watch him work with the hopes that one or two would take over the profession.
He added that broadcasting is not a job to be ashamed of, stressing;
I think you should apologize to every journalist, every broadcaster, for undermining our work
Reacting to being called a ‘half-caste’ by the pastor, Freeze said the word is ‘racist’ and he asked that Ibiyeomie apologizes to victims of racism.
Also on being called a ‘bastard’, Freeze said; “You say I’m not my father’s son. I put it to you to prove who my real father is”.
He further questioned Ibiyeomie if his utterances are in synchrony and symphony with the teachings of Christ.
