Freeze and Basketmouth have become something of big time clowns today with their back and forth on social media and what’s funny is they appear not to realize how much this could destroy both for them and their reputations ad well as immediate family members.
It’s been a crazy period seeing both men ‘feud’ on social media.
As we have seen the drama unfold, it appears Basketmouth has enlisted Bovi to help him with some more jokes given the latter’s Instagram post of Thursday, August 25, 2016.
He posted this photo:
And then captioned it: “This just made me Freeze! Thank God for fire.” To which Basketmouth commented saying: “They bark but can’t bite.”
With these, Basketmouth’s wife Elsie Okpocha got involved as she commented on the post with smiley faces.
Let’s take this back to the basis so the picture is clearer here because the entire situation between Basketmouth and Freeze started as far back as December 2015.
It all began at the second edition of the Olamide Live In Concert which Basketmouth co-hosted and wherein he threw shade at the radio host.
Sources present on stage say the comedian got on stage and spent minutes trashing Freeze right there on stage, at a gig Freeze himself was present at.
It didn’t end there. Another comedian Buchi also got on stage and picked up where Basketmouth left off and the jests continued to roll in.
Now, while Freeze kept his cool like nothing was happening, he got on social media later on and attempted a comeback as he called Basketmouth on Instagram.
Freeze replied swiftly with this:
From, there, it’s been one episode or the other from both men who ought to know better. But what’s really disturbing now is it’s no more fun as games seeing as Freeze has put Basketmouth’s wife in the picture.
Before now (in July, 2016 specifically), Freeze got on Instagram and apologized for all his comments towards the comedian.
Freeze wrote about having forgiven him a long time ago and so seeks that Basketmouth does the same.
He wrote: “My Dear brother Bright, @basketmouth, I miss how things used to be. If I have ever offended you, I use this as a medium to seek your forgiveness. Trust me, I have forgiven you a long time ago, and I am letting go of all the bitterness.”
Both men used to be close before things fell apart between them.
Now, with the feud still festering, Freeze who has taken it notches higher appears to be ready for full scale war because there’s no other explanation for his recent action.
On Friday, August 26, 2016, the Cool FM host got on Instagram and posted a throwback picture of himself and a lady who has been described as a former lover.
He then captioned the picture saying: “I had lots of hair before I started balding, LOL.
“Someone said I looked like Lucious Lyon.”
The lady in the picture with him has been identified as Elsie Okpocha who is currently married to the seasoned comedian, which pretty much explains to an extent why they could have fallen out in recent times.
It is interesting to note that Freeze is not married at present, to the best of our knowledge, since his union crashed in 2015 following several allegations.
Moving on, Freeze has thrown a deadly blow here. Although he posted and deleted the picture, the internet has been afire ever since.
And you see, the challenge with issues of this sort is even though he comes out and issues another apology again and again it changes nothing.
Same thing goes for Basketmouth as well because the moment he does a damage to Freeze’s person, no amount of apology will suffice.
It’s really disheartening seeing this all happen especially as these men are always in our faces with their various involvements in and with mainstream media.
Let’s face it, nothing is enough justification for these acts. It’s time we shifted our attention to other important issues concerning society at large instead of all these baseless back and forth.
Freeze is failing to maintain a stellar image with his ceaseless rants, and looking at this vis-à-vis his Sunday morning show on Cool FM, it is hard to believe it is this same man who goes all ‘spiritual’ as he sermonizes for hours every weekend.
Basketmouth on the other is failing incredibly with all this seeing as he represents major corporate brands as an ambassador.
Together, both Freeze and Basketmouth are acting so childish it gets us worrying if they are bothered about doing right in front of society at all especially as they are both fathers.
This is really messed up and someone needs to call both men to order because it’s no longer fun and games. It never was. And for the record, while some may feel the need to make excuses for both of them with explanation that controversy helps sell in showbiz, let’s also remember that whatever we put out on the internet never goes away.
Given this, it would be ludicrous of Freeze and Basketmouth to continue in this light and bring their respective families into the puerile social media tantrums that we have become of them in recent times as they have kids who will suffer this if no one else does.
We hope they figure this out or get help in time before they both self-destruct. We will continue to pray for them.--nglatest.com
