This is Daddy Freeze's reaction to his ex-wife's recent tell-it-all interview


In response to the story (HERE), OAP Freeze posted thus moments ago:


Greetings to you all... You see, it's a good thing I called out the fake account 'Andela', because it is now obvious who was behind it all along.
-
Dear Opeyemi,
Why are you doing this? And why at this time? I am tempted to start releasing real evidence, but you know what? I won't... Because I won't comment on a matter subjudiced by the court.
-
You told the judge that I was destroying your name and the judge ordered me to stop giving interviews. I even have a text I sent Mo Abudu, so the interview I did with ebony life could be take off the screens, and what do you do? You now go and give an interview of yours, after you have tied my own mouth?😳
-
Why are you so angry that I am in a better place right now? You told my parents at the last family meeting that we had, that I was going to die without you in the presence of at least 7 witnesses, 3years ago, are you so sad that I am alive and well? Why is it peppering you?
-
You gave me the worst union a man could ever have, the worst marital nightmare ever, yet I thank you for it, because if I hadn't tasted a bad union, I won't ever be able to appreciate a wonderful one.
-
You claim I come from a violent family, na wa o! Can you own up to the world about the circumstances in which your father Samuel Oni died? I want you to use your own mouth to say it.
-
Ope, whether you like to admit or not, I'm wonderful with children. Many times when I'm preaching, my son would sneak into my live videos, he even takes his mum's phone to call me at work. People viewing my live stream videos can attest to our closeness so why try paint me black and accuse me of violence against my other son?
-
The other day I wrote an article about @teebillz323 and the reality of depression. Do you think I wrote it because I like to write? No, I wrote it, because of the SEVERE DEPRESSION I experienced as a result of living with you and the point of suicide it brought me to! I'm over that now, thank God!
-
I started dating Benedicta 4months after you used your own hand to pack out. Does it seem short? Remember we stopped sleeping together for almost 2years before you left.

Estranged Wife of Lagos OAP, Daddy Freeze Exposeshis dirty sides in new Tell-It-All Interview (Audio)

CoolFM OAP, Daddy Freeze who has made an attractive career out of criticizing some Nigerian pastors with his #FreeTheShepple Movement on social media has been exposed by his former wife who has recounted the alleged ugly side of him.

 
Opeyemi (left) and Daddy Freeze when the going was good
Opeyemi, the estranged wife of Ifedayo Olarinde (popularly known as Daddy Freeze) reached out to BellaNaija, a blog to tell her own truth concerning the events that led to their separation.
She said she wouldn’t have a stranger speak up for her as two social media accounts with the same name – @andelasmith – have been making several allegations against Freeze in the past couple of days. 
With the permission of her children, Opeyemi has shared her own side of the story.
See excerpts below:
On their marital status:
I am still in court with him. Our divorce is not final, we’ve not even had a trial. The issue now is the last time we went to court the judge wanted to speak to our children (as they) were also involved in the abuse. My son has a kneecap that was broken when he tried to cover me when his father was beating me. He is just learning how to walk properly again and started playing football in January.
A lot has happened and I’ve kept quiet because I don’t know how to handle this. I kind of saw all this coming tho because when I was leaving he threatened me that if I left he will destroy me on social media because he has the power to do so as I am nothing and he is everything and there was no way I was going to survive without him.
On how are kids are coping with this:
We went on holiday to an African country and when we got back the first thing my daughter to me “Mummy I’m so glad this is the house we came back to, and not VI.” This is a situation where there was abuse every day.
A year before I left I had to stay in my marriage and be called Benedicta. I have enough evidence with my lawyers that will show all the abuse I went through. He cursed my son for covering me up while he was hitting me. My kids are in a much better place now and are happy. We live in a better situation and a more positive environment.
My kids and I watched an interview he did and thankfully they didn’t cry. They just laughed. I thank God that they are healing.
On why she has decided to speak up now:
He is the only man I’ve ever known for that long, so I didn’t exactly know how to handle what happened to me. There was no go-to book or counsellor; my not responding then was me broken, confused and lost. He used to beat me and put her on speaker phone and say “look I’m beating her and she has refused to leave” then she would scream at me to get out of the house. But I didn’t have anywhere to go.
I had no exit strategy but at the end of the day, I had to leave because if I had died that is how the story would have ended.
Right now reading all that stuff I read yesterday (Wednesday), I have no idea who the person is behind the Twitter account, but I am not a coward and if someone has come out with 100% truth of what happened, then I will speak up.
A stranger can’t be fighting for me and I’m quiet, so I decided to come out and say yes it is true. He was given a court order to stop humiliating me on social media but he hasn’t stopped.
I asked them (my kids) for their permission before I did this interview and my daughter goes “mummy you’ve been quiet, and it’s almost like you are afraid of him” My son said “mummy you’re afraid of daddy even though we’ve left” I had to let them know I’m not afraid of him and that’s why I’ve decided to speak up.
On why he is doing what he’s doing:
He was born into an abusive family, so I sort of understood where he was coming from. That was one of the reasons why I stayed so long. Even when people asked why I stayed with him when I was admitted into the hospital in 2006, I told them this was someone I basically grew up with, there was so much we had ahead of us so I wasn’t going to walk out on him.
If not for my kids I can assure you I would have still stayed and he would have killed me, just because I didn’t have anywhere to go. He kept everybody away from me. I  think he is disturbed, and this may be his own way of crying out for help.
OAP Freeze had previously shared his side of the story. We hope they find peace and compromise soon.

Chris Attoh is too focused to be bothered about divorce rumours

Ghanaian Actor, Chris Attoh has declared he’s not bothered about the numerous online report that suggests his marriage to Nigerian actress, Damilola Adegbite has crashed.

According to him, he was not perturbed about of the reports because his home is still intact. Myjoyonline reports.
Recall, in March this year, there were reports that Damilola had walked out of the marriage.
The divorce reports gained currency after Chris posted several photos of his wife on social media, wishing her a happy second wedding anniversary on February 14, but Damilola failed to respond or do same.
But putting to rest the numerous reports, Chris, in an interview with KMJ on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM said his wife “is wonderful,” and “she is currently in London. She just launched her Alpha Woman project,” which helps to empower women.
Asked about the numerous divorce reports, the ‘Shuga’ star noted that, “I don’t hear them, I don’t read them. I’m too focused, I can’t be too bothered with all these… what is important is in front of me.”
While many felt Damilola’s failure to comment on his wedding anniversary post on Instagram meant the marriage had hit the rocks, Chris noted, he got a perfect response from his wife.
“I got my response. The response doesn’t have to be on Instagram. I remember speaking to her that evening…” because I was in South Africa then, he stated.
He observed that their busy schedules do keep them apart but that hasn’t affected their marriage.
“Because of what we do we try to have time for each other as often as we can. It’s tough because sometimes I might be away for two, three months but that’s usually the interval. When she can come, she comes, when I can go, I go…”
In the awake of the divorce reports, it was rumoured that Chris’ family, particularly his sisters, were not in support of the marriage to the Nollywood actress but he refuted the reports quizzing “why will there be anything like that?”

This Nigerian Lady has slept with 2788 men

Image result for Ifediba Oluchi Anne

A Nigerian Lady on Facebook, Ifediba Oluchi Anne has stated categorically on her blog, that she’s a whore, and she has slept with a good amount of men.

Read Her Post Below:
I a whore! When people ask me how many men I have slept with, I tell them “2708 men excluding women”. The look on their face is always priceless and they go on to give me a speech about how I have been useless all my life. Some of them go the extra mile to tell me to give my life to christ and retrace my steps so I can get married and have kids. One time, a man told me I may not be able to have kids in the future as I had sinned too much and not kept my temple holy. I do find it funny that people are quick to shame me based on my sexual choices as a woman while cheering on a man who was the same body count as I do.
I grew up in a religious home. My parents attended The Lord’s Chosen and my mom was a fanatic for the church and its doctrines. The only sex education I got was one which relied greatly on abstinence. My mom would always sound it in my ears that I had to be a virgin. To her, virgins were entitled to a special kind of blessing from God and a sweet lasting marriage.
When I was 17, I had sex with a man who was way older than I was. He touched my boobs in the stairs and gave me gifts at every turn. I would admit that the situation which I grew up in didn’t teach me how to say “No” without feeling bad. It has taken me a good number of years to set boundaries and shun the things I do not like without being ridden
After my first sex experience which should be considered as rape in every sane country, I went through bouts of emotional breakdown. I had done something which society frowned at and I needed time to accept it. One would expect that I would never repeat such action anymore but I only went ahead to have more sex and do all sorts of stuff mom and church told me not to do. I never got any form of sexual education so you should know I made a lot of mistakes (which I love to call lessons)
I am not a whore because I have slept with the fictional amount of men ( yes, 2708 men is a fictional figure) although I have slept with a good amount of people. I am a whore because I talk about sex too often.
A good number of adults in Nigeria are having sex but as long as they don’t talk about, it is fine. Nigerians talk about sex. They talk about how sex is like an exercise for men. They talk about how it is okay for men to have as much sex as they want while they tell women to keep themselves. They talk about how rape is caused by women seductive dressing. They talk about how any woman with more than 1 body count is not wife material. They talk about how women privates can be used as a collateral for jobs and favors. They talk about how any woman who has had sex before should not cry rape if a man takes her against her will.
As long as you talk about sex the same way they are accustomed to then you are fine. For a while now, I have been talking differently about sex on Facebook. When Instablog9ja and other media carried one of my posts, people slut-shamed me.
I have come to realize that slut-shaming is only offensive when the victim feels hurt. I do not feel hurt.I am a whore…I said it. I sleep with men and talk about sex shamelessly on my blog in ways that really matter.

Big Brother Naija: Debbie Rise reveals how her dad received her back

Ex-Big Brother Naija star, singer and guitarist, Deborah Ebun, popularly called Debie-Rise, has revealed how her Dad pardoned her after she sneaked out to the show.


Debbie-Rise was one of the contestants that lasted till the last day of the reality show.

While in the show, she had told fellow housemates how she ran out of her home because her dad, a pastor, would not let her attend the show.

The Kogi-born singer, who has been touring media houses since the end of the reality, said, “Apart from the fact that my father is a pastor, I feel like I’m a typical girl with a good cultural upbringing from the north where parents are very protective of their children or they are just worried about the outside world like the city life.

“So, I understood it as to the kind of life he wanted for me. I know he wants the best for me and he was just trying his best.

“He was trying to be protective but being a pastor and me trying to have a career in music, there could be this friction.

“So I didn’t want a situation whereby I would inform him of my intentions to go and then he would say no. I did that because once he said no, then I couldn’t go because it would be disobedient.So, I wanted to be smart, go for it and tell him, ‘daddy I have gone, please pray for me’ like Dare Art Alade sang and I’m happy I did it.

“I would have had to convince him and there would have been no time to do that but then in the end, to God be the glory.

“He wasn’t initially impressed and didn’t like that idea and he actually called the producers of the event and asked me to come back home.

“He said he was not happy at all but then I was able to convince him and beg him.

“Before I returned home, I was a bit scared and I wasn’t sure he would be happy.

“I won’t lie, I was just hoping I made him proud in the house and when I finally placed a call to him, he said something like, ‘now you have my time abi?’

“And I apologized and asked him if I made him proud and he just said “I love you my daughter” and that is just what I want you to know, that my parents are proud of me and I’m looking forward to going home and paying them a visit.”

Saturday daily devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye ( Open Heavens 22 April 2017) – Prosperity Without Sorrow


Topic: Prosperity Without Sorrow [Saturday 22, April 2017]

Memorise: The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.Proverbs 10:22

Read: Deuteronomy 8:10-18 (KJV)

10 When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.

11 Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:

12 Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein;

13 And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;

14 Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;

15 Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;

16 Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;
17 And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.

18 But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

Bible in One Year: Numbers 12-13, Jeremiah 18:1-18

MESSAGE:

Many children of God dread prosperity because of the challenges associated with it, particularly when it relates to material prosperity. The reason for this attitude can be put down to either ignorance of the word of God concerning prosperity, or ignorance of the need for the children of God to prosper, if they would not live at the mercy of the ungodly. The Bible in Proverbs 22:7 says,

“The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.”

In our Bible reading today, we discover some truths about God’s purpose concerning the prosperity of His people. Deuteronomy 8:18 says,

“But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”

God gives power and opportunities to His children to get wealth for one singular reason: to prove Himself faithful to His word. In other words, the issue of God’s children becoming wealthy is not about them but about God and His infallible word. This is why those who pick and choose what they feel is suitable for them in the word of God are losers; God cannot be mocked. Such people want the blessings of Abraham, but do not want to keep the covenant that Abraham kept with God. Jesus in John 8:39d said:

“If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.”

Beloved, I have good news for you: God is interested in the prosperity of His people (3 John 2). Not only is God interested in your prosperity, He also gives you the power to make wealth and to prosper. Furthermore, the prosperity from God is without negative repercussions and sorrow. The Lord who prospers is the same Lord who protects. He will not give you a car that will become a death trap. He will not give you a child that will break your heart. If you believe this, you will see the glory of God. Finally, in order to receive the prosperity that is devoid of sorrow, you must ensure that the prosperity you are seeking is from the Almighty God. This suggests to us that there is a counterfeit prosperity which puts its beneficiaries in tight jackets of regret and sorrow. The devil is the giver of counterfeits, but Jesus is the true source of eternal blessings. You can never regret being prospered by His benevolence because He paid the price of your prosperity in full. 2 Corinthians 8:9 says,

“For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.”

Key Point: Stop cutting corners. At God’s own time and in God’s own way, He will prosper you.

Veteran Actor Olumide Bakare is dead


Veteran actor, Olumide Bakare is dead. Former president of the National Association of Nigerian Theatre Arts Practitioners, NANTAP, Mufu Onifade confirmed the sad news adding that he passed on early Saturday.

“He had a successful surgery and after the surgery, he talked to people and told them he was fine. But two hours later, he passed on. It is very painful because I had actually been wishing him a quick recovery. “Olumide Bakare is someone who was a hundred percent committed to the theatre profession. He started on stage and then from there, went on TV, did radio and then film which was where he settled.

Of course he became much more popular for his stint of TV in Oluwa Langbe Lodge. That was what brought him to limelight. You can’t fault him as a professional. He is someone who was very discipline. I see him as the last of the second generation of actors in Nigeria,” Onifade said.

The governor explained that the initiative was also in line with the  stomach infrastructure programme aimed at supporting their business.
 
Mr Fayose urged  beneficiaries to refund the loan as and when due so others can benefit.  He urged those without voters card to take advantage of the registration which will commence on 27th of April, 2017  by INEC.

This 27-yr-old American Medical Doctor Married Her Degree Certificate (Photos)

In a weird gesture, a woman has celebrated her success at becoming a medical doctor by marrying her own degree certificate.

Angie threw a party to celebrate the 'graduwedding'
 
Angie Hamouie has been in a very serious relationship for nine years: a long-term commitment to her medical education. So to celebrate her leap from student to resident at a hospital, the 27-year-old native Texan decided to throw a party to mark the occasion. And not just any party; a full-on formal "Graduwedding."
 
"It's the union of two souls, in this case Angie and her Medical Degree (MD)," she explains on an elaborate site dedicated to the upcoming event.
 
Like many wedding sites these days, Hamouie documents the long road to her "enmatchment" and the many things she's thrilled about when it comes to her new venture as a degree-holding doctor. There's also an "enmatchment" photo shoot on the beach.
 
The party, to be held May 13, will check off all the boxes of a classic celebration of matrimony: Angie will enter wearing a white dress, and besides dancing, there will be "speeches, a delicious dinner, a traditional Graduwedding cake, and a specially designed Snapchat filter to savor the memories!" as she explains on the site.
 
 
She's expecting about 70 to 80 guests to attend—those who have been with her "every step of my educational journey," as she told TIME.
 
Why the wedding-themed party? "I think a lot of people, women in particular, feel pressure to pursue one or the other: the career or the marriage. And when we really only celebrate one, it sends a clear message about what we're expected to focus on," Hamouie told TIME.
 
"I don't necessarily hope the 'wedding' part of the Graduwedding tradition continues, but I hope more people will focus on celebrating their educational achievements in a huge way, whatever type of training, degree, or certificate they've earned." So far, the response to her plan has been "overwhelmingly positive," she added.
 
"What surprises me most is how tickled other folks seem to be by the idea." Perhaps Hamouie has kicked off a whole new trend—one that doesn't require compromises on the guest list.Hamouie attended medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, she writes, before heading to Columbia University in New York to pursue a Master of Public Health.
 
She returned to Texas to finish off her degree, and has matched with a residency at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., where she plans to specialize in obstetrics and gynecology.
