Radio presenter Daddy Freeze has rebuffed verbal attacks from persons who deem his criticism against some religious leaders and their Christian teachings as an act of war against the church.
The controversial on-air personality, whose real name is Ifedayo Olarinde, is quite famous for his staunch disapproval against the payment of tithes in the church.
He has occasionally spoken against preachers like RCCG general overseer, Pastor E. Adeboye and Winners Chapel founder Bishop David Oyedepo over their luxurious lifestyle – a move some have expressed discontent about.
But in an interview with Sunday Scoop, Daddy Freeze said he is unperturbed by tags that he is an Antichrist because he is “the one reminding them of what Christ actually wants.”
He said: “Christ Himself was called the Antichrist; so, who am I to care? Christ was so controversial that in just His third year of ministry, He was killed. He entered the temple and flogged people out for misusing the building. Do you know how controversial that was? I haven’t even flogged anyone yet and they are already calling me the Antichrist.
He continued: “The real Antichrists are on the pulpit; you go and pay them visits every Sunday. If you have a message that is against Christ’s message, you are the Antichrist. If you are preaching (about) tithes and first fruits, you are the Antichrist. If you are looking for the real Antichrists, check your churches and pulpits. People go to worship in the church of the Antichrists and call me the Antichrist, not realising that I’m the one reminding them of what Christ actually wants. That’s hypocritical.”
