NIGERIAN controversial radio personality Ifedayo Olarinde (popularly known as Daddy Freeze) has reacted to the death of Brighton Elliot Moyo, the Zimbabwean man who South Africa-based Prophet Alph Lukau controversially ‘resurrected’ from the dead back in February.
Reacting to the second death of Brighton (struck with HIV, kidney failure and tuberculosis) who reportedly died in a village called St Luke’s in South Africa, Daddy Freeze said Brighton’s death proves that God cannot be mocked.
This has been reported by Ripples Nigeria, an online publication from that country.
The radio anchor took to Instagram to react to the development when he wrote; “Elliot finally dies…. God cannot be mocked, he claimed to be dead now he is really dead!-Sadly our faith has become a movie set, teeming with professional and amateur actors.”
In February this year, Pastor Lukau was involved in a controversy when he trended online for bringing a “dead” man (Brighton) back to life and then later gave him rice, salad and fried bream fish to eat.
However, things went awry for the clergyman when the funeral houses embroiled in the fake miracle opened up and admonished the pastor for deceiving them and using their hearse to fake a miracle in his church.
Daddy Freeze is a Nigerian radio host and presenter. He was born in Romania to a Nigerian father and a Romanian European mother, but was raised and educated in Nigeria.
He made news headlines last year when he attacked Nigerian pastors for stealing people's hard earned cash. He said he does not care if people call him demon but that when he sees pastors stealing from Nigerians in form of tithes and offering, he will speak up.
Freeze, on his Instagram page, said “call me a demon, I don’t care but when I see you stealing from poor Nigerians in tithes and offering, I’ll speak up and challenge you.”
In another post, Freeze said “The greatest dingbat is the one shouting “in church” he fails to realize that we are the church, not a building. Collecting tithes from Christians is stealing in its own right. Christ never collected tithes, neither did his disciples.”
He then mocked: “All the numerous people who have come to the #FreeNation to beg for money and assistance have been regular tithers, every single one of them.
“Yet our church, a church that doesn’t tithe, is solving their problems. I get up to 25 requests for assistance daily once again mostly from tithers, powerful tithers who tithe consistently.
“I think I can say fairly and logically, that tithing makes your life tight. 90% can never be enough for what 100% could not be enough for. If you don’t have enough you are poor and no where in the scriptures, new or old, were the poor required to tithe.
“Christ never collected tithes and neither did the disciples, stop leading yourself to an early grave of penury by holding on to a false and useless doctrine!”
