Voting Not Artiste Determines Electoral Results ~ Daddy Freeze


As Nigerians gear up their preparations for the upcoming 2023 elections, the
Issues of celebrities’ participation and endorsement of political figures is on the rise once again.

Media sensation and online air personality, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as
Daddy Freeze, has urged his colleagues in the entertainment industry to render services to political aspirants without fear of criticism from the public.

Taking to his Instagram page on Saturday, he argued that voting, not artistes’ performances at
political events, will determine the results of the upcoming elections.

In his words, “PVC and voting are what guarantee election victory, not artiste performance,” he wrote.

“Also, remember that if you don’t want to be a hypocrite, don’t clamp down on artistes alone, remember to include caterers, event venue owners, drink suppliers, ushers, security personnel, etc, at the events.”.

Daddy Freeze also jokingly made his intention known to interview political leaders who intend to use his services or platform for a fee.

He further went on to advise artistes to reject “emotional blackmail”, but remember to carry out their job “as professionally as possible.”

“Interviewing a candidate or performing at an event is
different from endorsement, know the difference. Earn your pay, Nigeria is already hard enough!” He said.

Daddy Freeze’s comment were aroused by the words of actor, Akah Nnani who advised colleagues to turn down money for performance from politicians.

Taking to the social media platform Twitter he tweeted, “If you pray at a political event or you sing for a
politician, you have endorsed that candidate.”

“It’s not by screaming about what’s wrong with the country when it’s convenient. It’s hard sometimes, but you have to turn down that money. We already know who our enemies are.

“From now, you have to decide on whose side you are on. Are you for the people or are you for the old systems?” Nnani wrote on Friday.
