SocialMediaTrends: President Buhari, Osinbajo’s vaccine lead; Daddy Freeze to pay fine, not tithe



The social media space in Nigeria on Saturday was abuzz with these trending topics that got Nigerians talking for the most part of the day.

Daddy Freeze

It rained sarcasms on social media at the weekend after a PortHarcourt High Court reportedly ordered popular radio broadcaster, Ifedayo Olarinde, a.k.a Daddy Freeze to pay the sum of N5m for commiting adultery with his lover, Benedicta Elechi.

According to the presiding Judge, Hon Justice Akpughunum, Daddy Freeze was to pay the N5m to the 1st Respondent/Cross Petitioner, Mr Paul Odekina, who was then married to Elechi at the time the adulterous act was committed.

The fine was awarded against the OAP as “damages for depriving the cross petitioner of the amiable consort of his wife and for injury suffered as a result of his adultery with the petitioner/cross respondent”.

The judge also proceeded to dissolve the marriage between the enstranged couple due to the adultery while Mr Paul was granted full custody of the children.

Social Media users did not spare a jab at the controversial OAP, popularly known for being a staunch critic of payment of tithe and offerings in churches.

President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari’s Covid-19 vaccine shot on live TV garnered no small attention and commendations from social media users on Saturday.

Many have described the decision by the president and his vice, Yemi Osinbajo to take the AstarZeneca Covid-19 vaccine in public, a demonstration of true leadership.

The act, it is believed, would validate the safety and efficacy of the vaccine before Nigerians.

But reactions from most social media users showed that a good number of Nigerians still have their doubts over the vaccine.
