Cool FM broadcaster, Freeze has reacted to Toke Makinwa’s controversial
Vlog entry advising ladies to have one-night stands and kiss strangers
Toke had advised young ladies to have fun and romantic lifestyle with strangers at an early age and when they about getting older, they retrace their steps and remain focus.
Many had not welcomed her opinion and saw it weird especially when it is coming from someone who is matured enough whom many see as a role model in the industry.
Ddady Freeze praised Toke’s courage for making her opinion known but warned that the Nigerian audience will not understand her view and are quick to pass judgment.
Dear Toke, I have known you longer than most people are aware off, I’ll
put it at 15 years at least. You were recording a radio drama series at
Coolfm, in 2001, when I joined, and I watched you grow, powered by hard
work, and fueled by the passion and drive that only a strong woman can

You are a trend setter, an online entrepreneur and a formidable force,
pioneering the paradigm shift, leading to the emergence of a new order

I watched your vlog, and I understand that you were trying to express
thoughts, that many people nurse in the depths of their minds, hidden
far away from public scrutiny. You, on the other hand do not enjoy that
immunity, being a successful public figure.
We Nigerians, are extremely judgmental, and love to seek fuel for jungle
justice, which has one way or the other, migrated into our social media
scene, where online courts are quickly formed, justice is speedily
given and executions are promptly carried out, without any mercy
Most people do not have the cognitive depth to assimilate the message
you were trying to pass across and have employed their fertile
imagination to fuel it into becoming what it has evolved into.
God bless and keep you dear! ~FRZ
