Nigerian radio host and presenter, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Freeze, recently lashed out on Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, COZA, calling him a ‘complete eyesore’.
The 96.9 Cool FM on-air personality criticized the man of God for living a life full of vanity as exhibited in his lavish lifestyle, flamboyancy and worse-so, adulterous life. Freeze also blamed the COZA pastor for misleading his followers. He made this statement while linking it to the story that one Ese Walters confessed in 2013, to having an affair with Pastor Biodun.
“I read with pain in my heart the story that Ese nee Walter who happens to be a close friend’s wife, has stopped believing in GOD. And I cannot but cast my mind to her ordeal in the hands of a so-called man of God!
“Her husband gave me his version of the story. I had worked with him for ten years and I have never known him to cook up tales. After being abused by a so called man of God, Ese initially lost her trust and now her faith. And then Nigeria blames her, calling her all sorts of names.
“What about the man who led her astray? I saw him at the airport the other day he was dressed from head to toe in monogrammed Gucci and Louis Vouitton. He was a patchwork of ‘G’ ‘LV’ G’ ‘LV’ G’ ‘LV’ G’ ‘LV’ G’ ‘LV’ ‘G’ ‘LV’ G’ ‘LV’ G’ ‘LV’ G’ ‘LV’ G’ ‘LV’ ‘G’ ‘LV’ G’ ‘LV’ G’ ‘LV’ a complete eyesore this man was.
“With the way he was dressed, his lavish parties and cars combined with what happened to Ese, I won’t trust him to sweep my compound yet some people call him pastor #SMH!”
The renowned presenter, who is a one time winner as the favorite Nigerian OAP at the 2014 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, is known for these kind of media outbursts on popular personalities. Although he allegedly abandoned his wife and two kids, and has been in media fight with his wife, Freeze has over time contributed his voice and opinion on major social issues in Nigeria. Therefore, he is gradually growing from being just a radio presenter to a social critic.
Meanwhile, the victim of Freeze’s target, Pastor Biodun, is a prolific speaker, dexterous writer and the Senior Pastor of the over 5,000 capacity COZA church in Abuja. Biodun, who believes that Christians should be able to influence the society with kingdom principles, is happily married to Pastor Modele Fatoyinbo, a Co-Senior Pastor of COZA, and together they have lovely children. However, Freeze summarizes all of these as “a complete eyesore.”
