Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze, has revealed the reasons why he will not be sending Christmas messages and gifts to anyone and probably forever.
According to the Nigerian-Romanian broadcaster and radio talk show host, he doesn’t celebrate Christmas as other Christians do because Israel, where Jesus Christ was born, does not even celebrate Christmas.
He added that he won’t celebrate Christmas which he tagged paganism because he cannot identify with how the colonialists and slave masters define us as black people; “our Argungun fishing festival or New Yam festival are not made national holidays.”
Daddy Freeze took to his official Instagram handle and shared a video where a man was explaining why Christians should stop celebrating Christmas.
Sharing the video, he wrote;
“Here is why y’all won’t get a Christmas message from me
Or from the #FreeNation.
I refuse to identify with how the colonialists and slave masters define us as black people.
We can’t have Black Lives Matter on the tips of our tongues and say Merry Christmas in the same breath.
Until the western world makes our Argungun fishing festival or New Yam festival national holidays, I refuse to celebrate their syncretism and paganism.
25th of December is NOT even a holiday in Israel the Land of Christ’s birth, people are at work today in Jerusalem, so I really don’t get why we black people should celebrate oyinbo people’s pagan festivals?
