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



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, 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.
