A High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State has on Thursday 18th February, 2021 ordered that Mr. Ifedayo Olarinde aka Daddy Freeze should pay N5m for committing adultery with his lover Benedicta Elechi with whom he bore a son Jason in 2015. Daddy Freeze is to pay the N5m to Benedicta’s husband, Mr. Paul Odekina.
The presiding Judge, Hon Justice Akpughunum in a judgment which lasted more than 1.3O minutes, ruled that Benedicta’s husband proved his case of adultery against Daddy Freeze and Benedicta through photographic documentary and electronic evidence and also by the admission of Benedicta Elechi herself. The Judge referred to Benedicta as a ‘self-acclaimed adulterer”.
It should be recalled that both Daddy Freeze and Benedicta were married to different spouses at the time of her pregnancy for Jason.
Freeze was married to Opeyemi, his ex-wife while having the obnoxious affair with Benedicta who was at the time also married to Paul Odekina,her now ex-husband.
However, Freeze’s marriage to Opeyemi was subsequently dissolved in 2019 over claims of adultery and battery by a Lagos High Court.
Early in his extramarital affair with Benedicta, Freeze had gone to the social media to spread claims that his wife, Opeyemi was violent and beating him up;, but the recent court judgement not only puncture his earlier claims but revealed a can of worms.
To most netizens, his social media outburst then was mere theatrics aimed at distracting the public and avoid exposing the immense damage his immoral affair with Benedicta has caused their both marriages
Although both Daddy Freeze and Benedicta Elechi also known as Tastebud are reportedly now married with a son, the later’s husband was able to prove to the court that at the time of the unholy affair, both parties were yet to be properly divorced from their ex-partners.
E-nigeria! also understands that while Freeze had two children from his previous marriage, Benedicta also had three children from her previous marriage; both parties one said they were victims of toxic marriages and are perfect fit, since they share same ideologies…More on this to follow soon.
