Daddy Freeze who further disclosed that he could walk into a shop and spend money on a rolex, mille or a Cartier watch without thinking twice, added that his colleagues at work hated his guts. The media personality however added that 10 years later, though he is not doing well financially, his life has so much more meaning.

He wrote;

This #10yearschallenge really got me thinking…..

10 years ago I was doing quite well financially, substantially better than I am now. I could walk into a shop and spend money on a rolex, mille or a Cartier watch without thinking twice….

I was also doing a lot in the Pentecostal church I was attending then….But the ‘doing well’ ended there. I was in a horrible marriage, I was going through depression and my colleagues at work hated my guts, in short there was a hole in my soul.

Fast forward 10 years later, I’m not doing as well financially, but my life has so much more meaning. My existence has definition and purpose, people come from across the world to hear me teach the scriptures, my communication with God is awesome in spirit and in truth, I have the most wonderful woman on earth, @tastebudzng beside me, believing in me. Against all odds we set up a church that is flourishing, souls are being won daily while we clean up the mess many Pentecostal churches are leaving behind.

Morale of the story; money is empty, hollow, and transient so NEVER let it determine the yardstick for measuring your success, instead value and purpose should. Your pastors have taught you to rate money very high, this is why a lot of people would say “Daddy Freeze is a failure, he is not a billionaire, he is still an employee of @coolfmlagos.” Well according to those standards Christ and the disciples were failures also, they were neither billionaires nor entrepreneurs.

I still love watches, cars and the good things of life; they light up my heart, but when I get a call from someone broken saying “Daddy Freeze your message saved me from suicide” or “Daddy Freeze, I knew if you picked my call my problem would be solved” or “Daddy Freeze, you have shown me scriptures I never knew existed and you have made me study the scriptures more”, my soul lights up!

  22. Daddy freeze has really made great impact in people’s lives well done sir So learn how to spend wisely now

  23. His own opinion and analysis of himself, who is his witness without any picture to portray since he want to do what ladies have started doing of social media concerning bumbum,

  24. Daddy freeze I hope your life has more meaning by challenging and calling out men of God on social media. Hope that you’re great drastic improvement is really an ultimate cos the Bible says “take heed, when thou think thou standeth lest you fall “.

  25. This daddy Freeze is likely talking as a woman. How come a grown man talks all the time on social media

  26. Dream achieved is more than money achieved so be happy cause u are achieving ur dreams u have gone far money can’t b a barrier

  27. So surprise to here this oh,but with the way they behavior at times u will think everything is perfect with them

  28. Money ain’t everything. I remember an inspiration video where the man said ‘if all you have is money then you are the poorest person on earth’.

  29. Behind every successful man is a woman, God created man and from his rips made a woman to be his helper, it is only right to find the rightful woman, money is notin once the blessings of God surrounds you, you are blessed sir

  30. No one deserve to be unhappy in the name of marriage not even they are as annoying as daddy freeze, thank God all is well with u now

  31. I thank God for your life. It’s good that you know God and preach His gospel. You don’t need to talk about your past but focus on your future.

  32. Money can’t guarantee happiness it’s just God who makes one happy. But all the same, thank God you are now a happy man.

  33. So as a pastor you didn’t pray for God’s direction, you didn’t pray for Him to tell you the marriage won’t be good

  34. The life of a man does not consist on the abundant of things he possess, seek God first and every other things will be added to you

  35. So he thinks praising his self and painting all other men of God is the way his affecting lives. God have mercy on you freeze, for you don’t know what your doing.

  36. Thank God you moved on.. ND out of depression. Which is a bad thing. Women can either make or Mar you.. Money is good.. Well said. Should not let it take over us

  37. I cant even try to come to your church, for me to come to your i rather stay at home, because you are a criticizer and Bible says we should not judge any body, but you are doing the judging.

  38. The most important thing in these life Is for one to be happy,because the bible says it seek ye first the kingdom of God every good things shall be added onto you

  39. Like they say,money is nit everything,Some have money nut no rest of mind…Weldone sir,i definitely know you will react

  40. You may not have reached where u want but u r not where u used to be. It’s a great milestone. Be grateful

  41. You’re right money is not everything in life also its roots of all evil that’s what money is what’s money without peaces of mind and happiness its nothing daddy fresh thanks

  42. With the way he talks and attack pastors I thought all is well with him even his marriage. Stop attacking men of God so that your life will be happy again .

  43. Well said, I thank God for your life. May his light and wisdom never cease in your life. Money is not everything, peace of mind is

  44. Money does not satisfy. Discovering the purpose of ur existence brings happiness and satisfaction. Thank God that u have gotten to this stage.

  45. Knowing and serving God in His purpose is the key thing that gives you rest and assurance. It brings about peace and unspeakable joy.

  46. It is well, Money can’t everything. You can only use money to buy material things but it can buy peace and happiness in marriage

  47. money is not everything and its bad to believe in money as achievement because it can vanish when you spend its not coming back until you work for pay. but if you are okay in life its more than having money

  48. Now I understand and know where you are coming from… It’s frustration from your past that’s making you lash out on men of God

  49. daddy freeze that is true talk .i like ur write ups .it is plain and direct.yes money is not everything cos if money is d poor would not have been in this worldagain .money is not a tangible asset ,it can vanish anytime

  50. I love your encouragement it means that you learnt a lot when you were in difficult times what does not kill a man makes a man stronger..

  51. Peace of mind is the ultimate thing in life. Money answereth all but it can never by peace and happiness…

  52. Who will stay with a man that doesn’t mind his business always pucknosing in other people’s affair,I give that woman hand for staying with you sef

  53. His horrible situation at 10 years was an experience to him and his one legged attitude but he should thank his God that he has normalize back to a better condition

  54. No matter who you are you must face challenges either in marriage, at work or anywhere. The only thing is to be strong

  55. Without God in whatsoever you doing, put will always think you don’t know to do anything well again..

  56. infact I must confess,I commend the woman that stayed with you because she really tried.You are so pathetic

  57. money aint the thing in life but people are going crazy over money for real. joy is something spiritual . expected the unexpected in times of need. even money can’t solve it

  58. As much as his story annoys me, at least he had something reasonable to share that showed st least that he has emotions that consoles pain

  59. Hmmm, the present life now is meaningful, giving hope to d hopeless and teaching people d way of God
