Controversial On-Air Personality, Daddy Freeze has thrown his weight behind Timaya after the latter condemned being linked to other celebrities, stating that they wear fake clothes.
While reacting to the singer’s viral video, Freeze said 95 percent of celebrities wear fake clothes, shoes and carry fake bags. According to the OAP, these celebrities carry fake items but frown whenever their pirated movies are being sold in traffic.
Daddy Freeze wrote;
“Hate chulo all you want but he spoke the damn truth. I can never forget the fake HUBLOT on the wrist of one of those protesting against piracy or the Fake Richard MILLE on the wrist of a timid celeb.
The friends to tailors part might have been misunderstood though. I support NIGERIAN Tailors and I wear them proudly.
But the fake Fendi gang’s got to go extinct this year guys, we can’t keep selling the fake it till you make it BS, act your wage guys!
95% of celebs wear fake watches, about 80% wear fake shoes and clothes, while they are crying out that their work is pirated, that in my opinion defines hypocrisy.
You dey pirate Gucci work but you no wan make dem touch your song. You dey wear fake Rolex wey you buy for traffic, come dey vex say dem dey sell your movie for the same traffic, you be cow, maaluu. ~FRZ”.

BENIN CITY-A 39 year-old man has been arrested with a decomposing head of his bossom friend, having vandalized his grave for suspected ritual purposes.
The suspect, Odiase Uyi had on Saturday, July 30, 2019 sneaked into his friend’s uncompleted building, exhumed his corpse and heartlessly detached his decomposing head.
He had taken the head in a bucket to be sold to a native doctor for N200, 000.00, when he was apprehended by vigilant group in Uwusan Community in Ikpoba-Okha local government area of Edo State.
The suspect and his exhibit were thereafter handed over to the police.
The deceased Mr Friday Ewemade, aka Ikpiha, 42, father of two, was said to have died under questionable circumstances on Monday, January 21, 2019.
He was buried in his yet-to-be completed three-bedroom flat at his home town, Uwusan Community on Tuesday, February 5, 2019.
The suspect Odiase Uyi was said to have joined two others to dig the grave and laid him to rest as a way of paying last respect to a departed childhood friend and kinsman.
Narrating how he committed the horrible act at night, the suspect Odiase Uyi said though he acted alone, a native doctor commanded him to bring a human head.
“My native doctor friend Mr Arthur Idemudia also known as Eyen-Ason asked me to get a human head for him.
“He agreed to pay me N200, 000.00. Immediately he said it, I took shovel, bucket and torchlight to my friend’s grave and I took his head away.
“But as I was going around 5am, some men stopped me. Ikpiha was my friend, my community friend. I do not know what came over me. I am begging for forgiveness”. The suspect pleaded.
The (traditional ruler) Enogie of Uwusan dukedom HRH Ogiesoba Igbinoba while describing the act as a strange abomination, commended the vigilant group and the ancestors of Uwusan land for exposing the evil.
He however promised to consult with relevant traditional authorities on the way forward as both the family of the deceased and suspect were his subjects.
The deceased elder brother, wife and cousin Mr Tony Ewemade, Mrs Loveth Ewemade and Kingsley Amayo, respectively, appealed to Edo State Government and Police to launch a discreet investigation as the suspect may had a hand in the sudden death of their brother, in the first instance.
The Commissioner of Police, Edo State CP DanMallam Mohammed confirmed the incident and directed our reporter to the Deputy Commissioner of Police incharge of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), police headquarters, Benin City DCP Usman Yusuf.
DC Usman however revealed that investigators of the homicide unit led by one inspector Acho Ornguga had visited the scene of crime as efforts were on to apprehend the fleeing native doctor.
A Las Vegas casino after being accused by Meek Mill of having a ban on black rappers said Monday that he was turned away because the club was at capacity.
The 32-year-old rapper was prevented from entering a concert Saturday at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino by security guards who threatened him with arrest.
The Cosmopolitan told TMZ that it has a ‘zero tolerance for discrimination’ policy and the incident was not race-related.
The rapper was headed to its Marquee Dayclub where DJ Mustard was performing.
‘Marquee Dayclub had reached capacity per Las Vegas Fire Marshall code. Earlier that day, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police had been called onsite to manage a larger than usual venue crowd,’ the casino said.
Their statement added: ‘Accordingly, when Marquee Dayclub was contacted in advance of Meek Mill’s arrival, security staff clarified that he would not be granted access because of capacity issues, in accordance with both club and resort policy. Upon his arrival, it was reiterated to Meek Mill and his team for a second time that access to the venue was not permitted.’
The statement also said, ‘Meek Mill refused to depart property and was then informed that any continued attempt would result in trespassing.’
In a video shared by TMZ and to the rapper’s own Twitter on Saturday, he can be seen speaking through the window of his vehicle with casino security members.
The first part of the conversation was cut-off by the security guard who seemed to be alleging that Meek was involved in some kind of physical altercation during a previous visit to the casino.
The Ima Boss rapper (real name: Robert Rihmeek Williams) claimed that was ‘impossible’ as he’d visited the casino only once before when he accompanied fellow rapper and former girlfriend Nicki Minaj to a Jay-Z show.
When he and his own security pressed the employee for details about the alleged altercation, he punted, claiming he didn’t know the details and that they’d need to contact the casino’s vice-president.
‘This comes from way higher up than me,’ one guard allegedly said, according to Meek’s lawyer Joe Tacopina.
The rapper took to social media to accuse the casino of racially profiling him.
‘If you come from our culture you should never step foot in the cosmopolitan hotel they just really racist as hell,’ he wrote. ‘Something really has to be done in Las Vegas what they doing to black people!’
‘They telling black rappers they are banned from properties they own without incident … they just told me I was trespassing and I will be arrested I stepped in that hotel once at a jayz party without incident!’ he added in a subsequent tweet.
He followed up his outraged posts with a legal threat.
‘I needs lawyers ASAP y’all not gone treat me like I’m just a rapper and expect me to be quiet.’
Tacopina, Meek’s lawyer, claimed he spoke with ‘a well-placed person inside the hotel’ who told him that a group of Vegas hotels have been attempting to keep rappers off their premises.
He labeled the alleged actions racist, saying, ‘They wouldn’t ban Vanilla Ice.’
On Instagram, Meek accused the cabal of casinos of taking black artists’ money when it suited them.
‘Some of these casinos have a bunch of Tatics to keep the level of blacks down …. but love to take our money!!!! This happens to a lot of black entertainers not just me either!! I felt crazy being put out by these white men for no reason!’
Later on Saturday, TMZ obtained a letter written by Mill’s lawyer officially accusing the Cosmopolitan of racially profiling his client.
‘… we have learned that the Cosmopolitan maintains a list of African American recording artists who should be denied access for no other reason than than their culture and skin color. Such course of conduct constitutes discrimination per se, in violation of state and federal law, and exposes you to significant monetary damages,’ he wrote.’
‘…we urge you to promptly issue an apology to Mr. Williams and grant him immediate access. In the event you fail to heed this one and only warning, we intend to pursue all legal recourse against you.’
Though Meek claimed not to have had any previous negative experiences at the Cosmopolitan, he was involved in a long legal saga that started when he was arrested for possessing a firearm and assaulting a police officer when he was 18.
Subsequent legal confrontations were handled by the same judge, Judge Genece Brinkley.
Mill was in and out of court, and also behind bars, due to later alleged parole violations, though Brinkley was criticized for her judicial conduct, and an FBI investigation was allegedly launched into her participation in Mill’s case, according to Page Six.
Last year, the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office petitioned Brinkley to release Mill from jail due to potential mishandling of his initial arrest in 2007.
She refused, though the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered him to be released in April of last year.
