Your husband is your head, not your partner – Daddy Freeze lectures Nigerian women

Controversial broadcaster, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze, has said Nigerian women are supposed to regard their husbands as their “heads” and not their partners.

The internet personality stated that African, Middle Eastern, Christian and Islamic traditions regard the husband as the head of the family and not as a partner like in the Western world.

Daddy Freeze madethe comment in a video posted on his verified Instagram account, where he also advised women to be careful who them submit their headship to.

He said; “Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa, Fulani, and Efik traditions as well as Christian and Islamic traditions, all say the man is the head of the house. In the Western world, your husband is your partner. Your husband is not supposed to be your partner, he is your head.”

A Nigerian man, Taiwo Ajadi, has filed for divorce from wife, Mariam over alleged disobedience and wayward attitude.

The couple appeared before an Area Court in Ilorin, Kwara state where he pleaded for the marriage to be dissolved and he be given custody of their children. Mr Ajadi and his wife have three children: an 11-year-old girl, a boy, 8; and another girl, 4.

The defense counsel, Maruf Ibrahim told the court that his client, Mariam, agreed to the divorce but not on the basis of the allegations levelled against her.

He said the woman was not in any way disobedient to her husband as Mr Ajadi alleged, neither was she wayward in any manner. Ibrahim further told the court that Mariam also wanted custody of their three children.

The counsel described the children as minors and argued that the husband should be responsible for their school fees and maintenance.

The Presiding Judge, AbdulQadir Ibrahim, said the applicant should produce evidence and witnesses on reasons why he should have custody of the children.
