OAP Freeze Takes A Shot At Winner’s Oyedepo, Calls Him ‘Yahoo Boy Pastor’


“It beats me that a pastor worth $150 million dollars, who owns more than one private jet cannot provide 24 hr electricity for Ota, which has a population of less than 2 million people.” These were the words of controversial Cool FM OAP who took a shot at some Pastors who are swimming in wealth while their followers are suffering.
Freeze specifically took a swipe at Winner’s Church  General Overseer,  Bishop David Oyedepo who he said despite his stupendous wealth could not provide some of the usual basic amenities for his host community.


 He wrote on his Instagram page;
What a beautiful morning, almost 10am and I have so many reasons to smile! There is nothing wrong with wearing or owning luxury products. Everything I own ‘I’ work for, everything these yahoo boy pastors own, ‘YOU’ WORKED FOR!
That’s why I am an evangelist not a priest or pastor and I have never collected tithe or offering from anyone I preach the word to, in fact, I even give to some of those I preach to.
When, if at all, I’m called by God to be a pastor, I will have auditors audit the offering and gifts and annually the entire church will know how the funds were utilized to the last kobo. If I attempt to do otherwise, feel free to remind me of this post!




If the man in Ota sold one of his private jets, it would educate his students free for nearly 40years, do the math, and this will enable them obtain quality education for those who can’t afford it, empowering and enlightening the next generation. Akon provided electricity for almost 2 million homes in Africa free of Charge, it beats me that a pastor worth $150 million dollars, who owns more than one private jet cannot provide 24 hr electricity for Ota, which has a population of less than 2 million people.
Jesus never took, he gave instead, he fed the multitude more than once and he instructed our first pastors, the 12 disciples, not to own more than one coat, the disciples even complained of being in rags, homeless and hungry, so how come our pastors are the exact opposite of the disciples?
Matthew 10:8-10 KJV


[8] Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. [9] Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, [10] Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
1st Corinthians chapter 4 verse 11: To this very hour we go hungry and thirsty, we are in rags, we are brutally treated, we are homeless. 12We work hard with our own hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it; 13when we are slandered, we answer kindly. We have become the scum of the earth.

Comedian Vs Pastors War: MC Abbey Slams Mike Bamiloye For Criticizing Comedians Performing In Church


As calls for the eradication of comedy performances inside Churches begins to gain more ground, MC Abbey, a popular comedian with a gospel background has called out the President of Mount Zion Faith Ministries International (a Christian Film/Drama organisation), Mike Bamiloye, who proposed the motion for the elimination.
Mike Bamiloye had said, invitation of comedians to churches is an aberration to the gospel of Jesus Christ because, laughing at “jokes of scriptures, the Blood of Jesus, speaking in tongues, the throne of grace etc,” is a mockery of God.


Since Mike said this, there have been supports from different groups who sees this as wakeup call which will allow churches to have a rethink on the idea of bringing comedians into the church and allow them to mock the gospel.
But in a heated reply, MC Abbey took to his Instagram page to view his mind.
He wrote: “I read all this ungodly write-ups against gospel comedy in church by respected people and I just wonder…
30yrs ago that’s how drama was condemned in the church by people who like to box God and play God until they saw the light. There reasons to them were valid bcos the alter is sacred so nor drama acts should be on the alter… Did it hold?… U can’t fight what God has blessed, yes there is need to caution some comedians likewise musicians and preacher who do erroneously but Pls do not insult or discredit the place of gospel comedy in church cos u will be making a great mistake…
I take out time in prayers and fasting to prepare bfr climbing and alter for inspiration and I get it and u are there trying to discredit my relationship with God vis-a-vis my ministry as a comedian cos u don’t understand it and later u say the Holy Spirit told u plssssss just shut up ! Wch Holy Spirit, the one that I get inspiration from or another or do we now have two Holy Spirit setting confusion in the body of Christ or just some people with shallow revelation of our faith sounding spiritual…
Don’t get things and people confused gospel comedy is not jesting, jesting means coarse and vulgar, we don’t do that so stop quoting scriptures out of context…eph5:4(amp version)  Let there be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse [obscene or vulgar] joking, because such things are not appropriate [for believers]; but instead speak of your thankfulness [to God]…now that’s jesting and authentic gospel comedians don’t Jest…#beenlightened #enoughsaid”
