The comments of Pastor David Ibieyeomie, General Overseer of Salvation Ministries, about the parents of controversial Nigerian-Romanian media personality, Ifedayo Olarinde, a.k.a Daddy Freeze may have come to many as surprise.
Ibieyeomie, while reacting to Daddy Freeze stance of Pastor David Oyedepo message on submission for women, said those who have fathers do not insult other people’s fathers.
The cleric said, “Insult me, I will not comment, insult Oyedepo, I will year you into pieces, that ba******, any day I hear him talk about Oyedepo again, Do they know his father? Does Daddy Freeze have a father? That half-caste who is born by Somalian.
“The day I hear him insult Oyedepo again, I will deal with him. Oyedepo may not talk, I cannot be alive and you insult my father. Who gave birth to him? If her has a father let him show us his father’s picture. Someone they gave birth in a ship.”
Contrary to the claim of Pastor Ibieyeomie, Daddy Freeze does not draw his ancestry to Somalia, but to Romania through his mum who is a full Caucasian from Europe.
Daddy Freeze was born to a Nigerian-Yoruba father, Olarinde from Osun State by a Romanian mother, Professor Elisabeta Smaranda Olarinde. He was born in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
His parents have three other children.
The details of Daddy Freeze father’s lifestyle are not in the public space but the presenter had posted pictures of himself flanked by his father and mother on the social media, sometimes in 2016 and 2018.
Daddy Freeze’s Romanian mother, Prof. Smaranda Olarinda is the current acting Vice-Chancellor of Afe Babalola University, a private university in Ado-Ekiti.
Prof. Smaranda has three decades of cumulative experience as a law teacher, academic, researcher and legal practitioner.
Her legal background, in both civil law (Romania) and common law (Nigeria) systems, adds to her diverse multidisciplinary profile.
