A comedian Seyi Law, submitted an apology to his wife for his costly prank that has made his Instagram followers and local media to think that they have separated.
In the early hours of Sunday, February 10, 2019, he shared via his profile a confusing post that suggested that they have broken up.
He later published another which saw him confirm a deliberate attempt to share fake news. It seemed an effort to promote a show he plans to hold later in the year but now he is sorry for the extravagance.
“I need to apologise to my wife who found the joke highly embarrassing and way out of line,” Seyi Law expressed in the new post. Already on Twitter, the impact of the error is already manifesting.
Disappointed and trusting fans
Many profiles have believed the misleading IG post but one is particularly disappointed as Seyi Law’s reputation being a celebrity is brought to question.
“So Seyi Law has lost relevance to the point of going this low to trend?,” a profile @theslickguy asks in a tweet. The saddening feeling of another split involving a public figure also hovered in the mind of another observer.
Discouraging fake news
The fake news menace is a security threat in Nigeria where voters are getting ready to elect new leaders in about a week. This is because of its harmful impact which can include violence due to potential sentiments about a report.
Facebook has been proactive about discouraging the continuous spread of false information. It has developed partnerships with the local media in the country including one with us.
On Monday, January 28, 2019, the social media company engaged the reporters at Africa’s leading news publisher in a workshop held at Pulse headquarters in Lagos, to discuss Facebook community standard that can help curb fake news if adhered to.
The effort to make this happen — preventing the dispersal of made-up stories, must come from everyone including celebrities.
“Nigerian pastors are fraudsters” – Singer, Samklef says, reconciles with Daddy Freeze
Nigerian Singer, Samklef and Daddy Freeze have ended their squabble 3 years after they mercilessly dragged and blocked each other on social media.
Recall that in 2018, Samklef and Daddy Freeze disagreed over religion.
Trouble started when Freeze criticized a report about the healing of a mentally challenged man at an RCCG church.
Samklef, who was displeased with his critics against men of God, slammed Freeze, telling him that his constant criticism of the church was getting boring.
The exchange heated up, with Freeze telling Samklef his career was dead which led to the singer calling him a “fake ass oyinbo” and his followers “mumu Satan followers”.
What Daddy Freeze said about Sound Sultan after his death
Following the development, they later blocked and unfollowed each other on all their social media platforms.
However, Samklef took to his Instagram account on Sunday to reach out to Daddy Freeze, stating that he can now see “clearly”.
He said most religious leaders are “419” and Freeze was right all along.
“I was blind and ignorant but now I understand and can see clearly.
“Everything Daddy Freeze has been saying is the truth. 90 percent of the so called Nigerian men of God are fraudsters.
“It’s your faith that makes you whole so they collect money for miracles that happens through you.

“Daddy Freeze is the John the baptist of this generation. I can finally see,” he wrote.
In his response, Freeze acknowledged his acceptance and admitted he should have been patient with Samklef at the time.

T.B Joshua: Are you true Christians – Daddy Freeze questions top pastors over funeral turnout
Popular On-Air Personality, OAP, Daddy Freeze, has slammed top Nigerian pastors for not attending the funeral of the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Late Prophet T.B. Joshua.
The deceased clergyman died on June 5 and was buried on Friday, July 9.
We had reported that top pastors, church owners and religious leaders in Nigeria were conspicuously missing during the burial of the late Prophet.
It was also observed that the only notable clergyman who attended his funeral was the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria CAN, Lagos state chapter, Rt. Rev. S.T.V Adegbite.
Reacting, Freeze in a video via his social media account expressed his disappointment in top Nigerian pastors who failed to identify with the deceased prophet even in death.
He stated that no matter what may have transpired among them when he was alive, they should have had a forgiving heart and attended his funeral.
“Prophet T.B Joshua has been laid to rest. May his soul rest in peace.
“However, the turnout of Christians especially top Nigerian pastors who attended this man’s funeral makes me worry.
“If we truly are Christians, every church should have sent a delegation.
“I must say I am so disappointed in all these pastors because they have not shown a legacy of love. So, none of them could fly their private jets and attend the funeral?
“If you ask me and you expect me to be honest, I am entirely disappointed in all the big daddies that we have.
“If they behave like this, how are we the children going to behave? You people have turned gods of men.
“I’m sure they don’t understand the gravity of their actions, especially these ones we call our daddies,” he said.
