Actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has expressed her concern on the situations in the country, urging youths to free themselves from mental slavery at a trip she took to Badagary recently.
During her passionate speech, she mentioned controversial OAP Daddy Freeze who is known to speak against pastors who commercialize religion by taking advantage of their followers’ ignorance.
“Stop getting angry with the Freezes of this world. They are not your problem, they are trying to help you.
It might be wrong what he’s saying, you may not agree with what he’s saying, but you must agree with the spirit of which he is saying it. You need to wake up. You need to wake up Black people.
“You have to wake up and stop being trivial. And stop talking about whether I like this person, or I don’t like how he’s delivering it, or I don’t like his face.”
“Young people wake up, don’t be on social media buying data to be insulting celebrities. Or to be following celebrities and knowing what they wore last night, that’s not your business,” she said.
“How many of these big labels anywhere are owned by Africans or Black people? Tomorrow you’re wearing Ferragamo, next tomorrow you’re wearing Gucci or you’re using your Facebook or Instagram or whatever. They’re all made by who?” the actress asked and her audience replied, “Whites.”
