Nigeria 2023 General elections have sparked debate as to the celebrity participation and endorsement of political figures rages on.
Popular Media personality, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze, has encouraged his colleagues in the entertainment industry to render services to political aspirants without fear of criticism from the public.
The On Air personality argued this via his verified Instagram page on Saturday while suggesting that voting not artiste’s performance at political events will determine the result of the upcoming elections.
In his words, Daddy Freeze wrote:
“PVC and voting are what guarantee election victory, not artiste performance
Also, remember that if you don’t want to be a hypocrite, don’t clamp down on artistes alone, remember to include caterers, event venue owners, drink suppliers, ushers, security personnel, etc, at the events.”
Daddy Freeze also declared his intention to interview political leaders who intend to use his services or platform for a fee.
He further advised artistes to reject “emotional blackmail”, but remember to carry out their job “as professionally as possible.”
“Interviewing a candidate or performing at an event is different from endorsement, know the difference. Earn your pay, Nigeria is already hard enough!”
