Daddy Freeze has replied to Pastor David Ibiyeomie stating that he was devastated by the viral video in which Ibiyeomie refer to him as a bastard and threatened to deal with him if he dares to abuse Oyedepo.
In a video Daddy Freeze posted on his Instagram, the On-Air Media Personality also accused Pastor David Ibiyeomie, a Nigerian televangelist, and founder and senior pastor of Salvation Ministries, in Port Harcourt of racism.
Daddy Freeze said: “Correcting scripturally is not an insult.
“Christ was criticised, Paul was criticised, Peter was criticised, even the Pharisees were criticised, so there is no way you are going to preach a message from the scripture that you will not get criticism. I found it very devastating that just to get at me, Pastor Ibiyeomie, would drag the whole Somali nation.
“I am very proud to associate with Somalians because they are very beautiful people.
“Beautiful African people like you and I.
“It is hate speech to undermine them with derogatory words: ‘Is he not just a Somalian?’
“To all my fans and followers in Somalia, I love you all and proud to be associated with you, even though by birth I am not a Somalian; my mum is European, my father is Yoruba.”
Freeze also drew the attention of the public and the law enforcement agencies to the threat of life issued to him by the pastor.
He said the threat is a criminal offence and it should be on the record that Ibiyeomie threatened his life.
Freeze said: “Is this how Nigeria is going to accept this?
“If anything happens to me, I hope you know who to hold responsible?
“This has been on social media space for the past 24 hours now.
“I am yet to hear anything from the police.
“What happened to our laws on hate speech, racism, discriminatory statements, a threat to life, which is actually criminal?
