I stopped going to church due to what pastor did to me – Daddy Freeze

Nigerian media personality, Daddy Freeze, has revealed how a cleric’s action towards him made him to stop attending church many years ago.

The controversial OAP said his pastor at the time, expelled him from sitting in the front row of the church following his divorce in 2014.

Daddy Freeze made this known during a recent episode of the Teju Babyface ‘Deep Dive’ audiovisual podcast.

He revealed that when the pastor of the church he was attending, told him that he was being sent to sit at the back because he had become a divorcee.

According to the social media influencer, he was a church worker and was very active in the organisation of the programme but after the incident, decided to stop going to church instead of “hiding” in the back seat.

Freeze further revealed that he started studying and researching the scriptures on Sundays, which led him to discover that most of the things Nigerian churches preached were “flawed.”

He said; “My marriage had always been troubled and in 2014 it came to an end. And I remember I used to do events in my church. The church minister used to pay me then to do events which I celebrated. At least, the pastor was not eating all the money, he was sharing with the people who were working.

“I was booked for an event that I used to do for the church, and I got a call that I should cancel it because of my divorce or pending divorce drama. And I was like, ‘Because I’m going through a divorce does that remove God from me?’ I questioned that too.

“Then the pastor came to my house and we had a conversation. He was like, ‘I’m not telling you not to come to the church but when you come to the church, sit at the back.’ And I was like what’s all this? So, that made me sit at home on Sundays. Instead of going to church and hiding, is it not better that I sit at home? So, sitting at home on Sundays now started feeding the holes in my brain.”
