Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has told Nigerian youths to stop calling out Daddy Freeze, rather they should face the reality of life.
In a video released by Broadway TV, the actress is seen taking jabs at the youths who attended one of the events that were organised to mark her 40th birthday. In her speech, Omotola said black people need to wake up.
“Stop getting angry with the Freezes of this world. They are not your problem, they are trying to help you. It might be wrong what he’s saying, you may not agree with what he’s saying, but you must agree with the spirit of which he is saying it. You need to wake up. You need to wake up Black people. You have to wake up and stop being trivial. And stop talking about whether I like this person, or I don’t like how he’s delivering it, or I don’t like his face.
“Young people wake up, don’t be on social media buying data to be insulting celebrities. Or to be following celebrities and knowing what they wore last night, that’s not your business. How many of these big labels anywhere are owned by Africans or Black people? Tomorrow you’re wearing Ferragamo, next tomorrow you’re wearing Gucci or you’re using your Facebook or Instagram or whatever. They’re all made by who?” she lamented.
