Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze, a Nigerian-Romanian broadcaster, has written on why he doesn’t celebrate Christmas.
Taking to his Instagram page, the Controversial OAP stated some reasons, one of which was that he does not want to associate himself with the way the colonialists defined the black people.
Read his full post below:
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? 🤷
