Ifedayo Olarinde, Nigerian media personality better known as Daddy Freeze, has tackled Enoch Adeboye, general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), over his counsel on marriage.
Adeboye had on Monday charged his “sons” to refrain from marrying ladies who can’t cook or do chores.
Joining the fray of people who took to the social media platforms to bare their mixed opinion on the matter, Freeze argued that women are more than cooks or servants in relationships.
“A woman is more than a cook or a maid servant. These in my humble opinion, should not be the priority when choosing a wife in this decade,” he wrote in a lengthy Instagram post, alongside a screenshot of the cleric’s tweet.
“Although a woman who can cook is definitely a plus, as @tastebudzng has proven, we have to be careful not to discriminate against women who can’t.
“Did Eve know how to cook? The scriptures are silent on it. She was flesh of Adam’s flesh and bone of his bone; not his cook.”
Also reacting, Toke Makinwa, an on-air-personality, said only those who think themselves sons to the 65-year-old clergyman should be bothered about his controversial advice.
“When Pastor Adeboye says ‘my sons’, ask yourself if you’re a member of his flock. Are you his spiritual child? If no, why are you bothered? Let him advise his own,” the actress wrote on Twitter.
“If it’s not for you, jump and pass, my friends. I promise you won’t go to hell by facing your front. Cooking is not restricted to a gender.
“Guys learn how to cook so you don’t base the entirety of picking a life partner on your belly. If you don’t want to, make enough to hire a chef. Life is too short to be triggered all the time.”
Toke is known for her unapologetic opinions on marriage, lifestyle, and other matters of social importance, having accused African parents of “ruining the lives” and being “the world’s worst.”
The TV host, who once described herself as a “fan of separation in marriages,” had split from Maje Ayida, her former husband, for allegedly cheating on her after they had dated for close to eight years.
