Freeze Calls Out Nigerians on ‘Poverty Mentality’ – Olajumoke vs The UNILAG Perfect GPA Graduate

Olajumoke-Ayodele Dada-Freeze-2016OAP Freeze thinks Ayodele Daniel Dada, the first UNILAG student to graduate with a 5.0 GPA should get as much recognition and endorsements as the grass-to-grace stories of people like Olajumoke Orisaguna and the hawker Ciara posted a photo of, as she’s in Lagos.



When are Nigerians going to celebrate real achievements? On the left is Mr. Ayodele Daniel Dada the first Nigerian to finish university with a perfect CGPA of 5.0 and on the left is Mrs. Olajumoke Orisaguna a ‘former’ bread seller.

Before Ayodele, no one had ‘EVER’ finished with a perfect CGPA in UNILAG!!! Since it was established in 1962, he made history by becoming the first to achieve such a commendable feat!

Now, so many questions come to mind. How come my dear friend Kunbi of ‘April with Kunbi’ hasn’t styled him or recommended him for styling? How come CNN hasn’t done a story on him? How come his life isn’t documented on blogs daily? How come he isn’t a brand ambassador for any product? The questions are ceaseless. Ciara put up a post of an equally beautiful traffic hawker selling some type of fruit yesterday and she was described, in Ciara’s own words as ‘beautiful and talented’. If these two ‘hawker beauties’ were discovered less than 2 months apart, it means that beautiful girls that hawk commodities aren’t in short supply in Lagos. While people who finish with with a 5.0 CGPA are almost non existent! It took 54 years to produce the first one!

While Olajumoke and this other lady are rough stones that could be polished to achieve a lustrous shine, Ayodele is a true jewel, a rare yellow diamond in its truest and purest form. Let’s not let our ‘poverty mentality’, that makes things of lesser importance seem valuable, cloud our judgement. I have no objection to polishing stones to bring out their shine, but please let’s not do it at the expense of gems of inestimable value! The outcome of our future depends largely on ‘what’ or ‘whom’ we invest in.

If Japan, Switzerland or America invested their time and money in pretty bread sellers, we won’t have the brains behind their automotive, aeronautic, horological or financial achievements today. I’m not saying we shouldn’t celebrate Olajumoke o! Before people call me a hater but like hell we must celebrate Ayodele first! Just my thought on a Saturday evening~FRZ

    See you can’t take away God’s grace over someone’s life. Why complain on social media when you yourself can do something to help the 5.0 guy. No need to make the young lady feel less important, she stumbled on her luck and so be it.

    • Julius C. Onwuegbule February 28, 2016 at 1:09 pm

      You just said my mind. Uncle Freeze, why don’t you celebrate him on your own platform rather than criticizing others for celebrating others worth celebrating.

      Why do Nigerian always find ways of creating loop holes in peoples achievements. Baba instead of telling us to recognize Ayo, you recognize him and we”ll encourage you to support him.

    • Jade February 28, 2016 at 4:21 pm

      The truth is the guy with 5.0 GPA has more opportunities than a young lady who is selling bread. Ayodele has companies looking for him in Nigeria and abroad, give him scholarships to further his study. Nigerians celebrate academic achievements already, that’s the norm. Jumoke’s story is a new one that Nigerians usually overlook, look down upon and ignore. Nigerians don’t respect Jumoke’s type of hustling. So, it’s nice that this type of story is also celebrated. Basically, giving hope and opportunities who are not going the typical, norm route. And God can raise anybody up at anytime.

    • Ame February 29, 2016 at 2:31 am

      Thank you. He could have ‘led by example’ by helping him first so others follow. Japan, America etc discover people from ‘unfortunate backgrounds’ all the time

    • ISK February 29, 2016 at 2:13 pm

      Don’t mind freeze he knows how to bring people who are better than him wonder basket mouth dissed him. Freeze leave Jumoke alone

  • Tee February 28, 2016 at 12:36 pm

    I agree with Freeze for the first time. We need to get our priorities right in this country.

    • naya February 28, 2016 at 1:36 pm

      Dere is nothing to agree with, The comparism doesn’t match, he is supposed to be comparing the guy with all the talentless musicians eg wizkid not jumoke cos there story is diff, he should just say he is irritated because jumoke’s news is everywhere and not use dis to hide. Y cant he start by helping him, is it only april kunbi or ty bello dat can help. He should sell one of his stupid wristwatches and help others will ff, or invite d boy to his show. Gosh I get irritated by dis freeze man

  • ucylo February 28, 2016 at 12:40 pm

    He is quite intelligent, does this mean he never even got an A- in maybe one boring elective that he hated or one annoying university required course. Wow!!!! He should be sent for further studies with all expenses covered

    • Oversabi February 28, 2016 at 2:51 pm

      I can tell you never visited one of these hellish naija campuses as a student. Perfect 5.0 is “IMPOSSICANT” mildly put. Naija no dey give A minus. They are not that interested in student progress. It’s A, B, C, D and F. The favored grades are C and under. Some profs will tell you A is for the teacher who knows it all, B is for smart ones. The bobo try no be small. I wonder if “freezing” (intentionally misspelt) knows about grading systems. ……… just thinking out loud sha.

      • Seriously February 29, 2016 at 5:50 am

        Nene, your comment is very flawed but I see why it sounds good because people will rather believe some are just born lucky due to certain circumstances or experiences they’ve been through in life.
        I don’t believe anybody is automatically born wealthy or smart. If someone is born into a wealthy family, the generation before her worked extremely hard to create such platform. Also, if they rise to the top to be rich/wealthy is something that they worked for. Smart people work hard to be smart, it’s not something that falls on their lap. However, people are good at different skills and are smart in different ways. Everybody is beautiful in their own way. Beauty is judged by human standard. So, beauty is not by luck. People often say beyonce is lucky to be born beautiful. So someone who doesn’t look like her or have features is not lucky to be born beautiful?
        People like Jumoke are criticized bcos society see their story as luck. But folks fail to also understand the hard work, effort put out by the student with 5.0gpa is the same effort put out into her going on the streets selling bread. Just bcos it’s not the traditional way of things doesn’t mean it less. The struggles, challenges, obstacles, pain people face in life is different but we all have faced difficult times one way or the other.
        People have no idea how much pain, struggles Jumoke’s went through on that street and if she wasn’t there hustling she wouldn’t have had this opportunity come her way. Some call it, positioning yourself at the right time. Bottom line, God’s grace and sovereignty. And also having the right heart to receive.

  • nene February 28, 2016 at 12:40 pm

    biko someone should kidnap freeze to a remote island so we never have to see or hear from him again. in his mind, he’s making sense. Nobody is celebrating poverty mentality, jumoke got lucky, and a lot of people in this world don’t get lucky. Being born wealthy, beautiful, smart, intelligent, etc is luck, you didn’t work for it but you came into the world like that. As for the guy who got a high GPA, he was also born lucky because he’s intelligent, probably never had to hawk in his life, maybe he has middle class parents, but he also had to work hard to be the best, which is why he is being celebrated for his hardwork and exceptional performance. These are two different cases, that aren’t really comparable. If jumoke doesn’t utilize her luck well by working hard now, then her success story might not last. This is why different people have tried to give jumoke various platforms to make her be just as successful as the high gpa student. Jumoke’s story is one of grass to grace, and such stories are celebrated because people can relate to them more as opposed to someone who already has a platform and works hard to be the best. Many people work so hard, yet they are praying for a breakthrough or a platform (luck), and jumoke resonates more with the majority, including me.

    • olsnetwork February 28, 2016 at 2:34 pm

      this comment hit the nail on the head. Most intelligent thing i have read all day

      • ? February 28, 2016 at 6:57 pm

        That is the most intelligent thing you’ve read all day, like Seriously ?.

    • ? February 28, 2016 at 7:23 pm

      Nene your comment is by far the silliest I have ever read. It says a lot about the confused and utterly contradictory person you obviously are. I have never come across a comment that contradicts itself on every other sentence. It is you who should be locked away in room 101 were hopefully you’d be introduced to the basic rudiments of smart woman living in todays 21st century. In the mean time why don’t you go and make stew for your hubby and children dreaming of the day you’ll be lucky and get pluck out of obscurity just like Cinderella. Mtchewwww

      • quentin February 28, 2016 at 11:13 pm

        Thank you nameless. Your comment gives me hope. In regards to what freeze say- on point. Nene your comment is clueless and tainted with your own poverty mentality.

  • Nike February 28, 2016 at 12:41 pm

    I agree with u freeze.

  • tony February 28, 2016 at 12:42 pm

    Freeze should stop running his mouth. More action and less words Freeze. T Y Bello didn’t just talk about making Jumoke somebody, she made it happen. Freeze is an OAP who can use his position as an OAP and do the same thing for Ayodele. Why is Freeze expecting others to do same for Ayodele? Why can’t Freeze become T.Y Bello in the life of Ayodele? I get his point about Ayodele not being celebrated enough but what has he done to change that as an OAP? More actions my brother.

  • Atebodi Mosi Aisoni February 28, 2016 at 12:43 pm

    why make something our of nothing. This here another Kanye West born Rant. Freeze just chill a bit . Don’t be all hypotical about everything. The same woman if had same opportunity as the unilag Grad and Zeal cud make a 5.00 . Freeze head is Buzzing crazy lately. Pls tell us what worrying you.

    • Lilo February 28, 2016 at 12:53 pm

      He is a product of dysfunctional upbringing

  • Lilo February 28, 2016 at 12:48 pm

    Another undisputable reason why some of us insist that Freeze is a raging lunatic who clearly speaks before thinking . Ty Bello launched a search for the bread seller who photobombed her work. The rest has become history now because Ty took that initial search and rescue step. Ty did something instead of sitting behind her keyboard typing up a rosy future for Jumoke. I mean Ty does even flood Instagram with audemars piquet and Hublot watches so she has exceeding humanity ‘s expectation.

    Now fast forward to the one who wears watches but can’t tell time, to save his own life. freeze, if you had a brain, all you had to do with you sell acclaimed rich mentality us launch a search and rescue , find this stellar graduate get him a job and the rest will be lustily likewise jumoke’s case. After all, you don’t like poor people ba? Oya make it happen for Ayodele and stop spewing garbage, be the change you want yo see, then Glo, MTN etc will follow your lead. Ty did not wait around for miracles to happen to Jumoke. Rather she chose to be a miracle.

    • Lilo February 28, 2016 at 12:51 pm

      Typos everywhere damn auto correct.

      Ty doesn’t flood instagram*
      She has exceeded*
      The rest will be history*

    • vivian February 29, 2016 at 9:26 am

      I Love this.

  • fan February 28, 2016 at 12:49 pm

    I think this Freeze should go and borrow common sense from Ben Bruce.Haba na every case he go buy.on Monday was AY,now Jumoke.Jealousy Man

  • Babym February 28, 2016 at 12:59 pm

    Oga Freeze, why can’t u sell one of ur wrist watches and use it to do better for the guys life??? Ngwa u b his ty bello na, mscheewww. How dare u try to insinuate that one person deserves more blessings than the other?? I just can’t with this guy.

  • X February 28, 2016 at 1:00 pm

    If i’m correct..Kunbi does women’s why call her out?

  • a February 28, 2016 at 1:06 pm

    This Freeze guy sha. First and foremost, these 2 people are operating in two completely different sectors!Aunty Jumoke photobombed and got her first “modelling” gig through it. Hence,she got noticed in the MEDIA industry. Our first class bobo almost certainly has got scholarships and job offers available to him (which is what typically happens). Do you think thi guy cares about the limelight? Do you think those giving him job offers and probably scholarships care about being paraded on social media?

  • Emmanuel February 28, 2016 at 1:07 pm

    Freeze, you could have made a point for the 5pointer without bringing up Jumoke! You don’t have to put off someone’s candle for another person’s own to shine. The sky is big enough…

  • Sylvia February 28, 2016 at 1:14 pm

    Nigerians like to rely on ‘luck’. They like lottery, that is why the country is where it is today. Nobody wants to work hard, they all just hope that someday they’ll see bags of money on the floor. They do not even encourage those that work hard. That was how I read comments online on the Ayodele’s story saying ‘who first class don help?’ These are the same people who are tapping into Olajumoke’s blessing. It’s very unfortunate that this is how majority of Nigerians reason. What my father always tells me is that wealth that comes easy, will go easily. Just take a look at any lottery winner around you, I know someone that won $500000 in lottery about ten years ago (this money was a big deal then, still is though, but I hope you get my point). Now, he literarily begs for transport money each time he visits. Even pastors of churches nowadays do not help the matter, Nigerian christians only see God as a ‘miracle worker’, nothing more. Even when Proverbs 28:19 says, “a hard worker has plenty of food, but a person who chases fantasies, ends up in poverty”. My point is people should work hard and stop waiting for ‘luck’, as well as encourage those who are hardworking. I believe Ayodele should be awarded, not only to encourage him but also to encourage our youths that they can achieve anything they want to achieve if they work hard, no matter how impossible it seems. End of rant.

    • Vanessa February 28, 2016 at 1:39 pm

      Preach sister!

    • Doxa February 28, 2016 at 6:12 pm

      Ahn ahn, but Olajumoke was working hard when her luck shone naa.

    • Evilicious February 29, 2016 at 4:40 am

      I don’t understand, someone who left wherever she was before because of the hardship she faced, and came to Lagos to hawk bread, most of the time with her little child wasn’t a hard worker? She depended on “luck” ? Just because she didn’t have the opportunity to go to school when oga 5.0 gpa did doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve all these blessings she is getting. All these people criticizing this girls story, if someone came from nowhere one day and blessed your life, will you say no? Do you guys know what this young girl has been through? If you have data to type this I doubt you are spending the night on an open space in a bakery depending on 300naira to 700 naira daily. I’m not saying academic excellence shouldn’t be celebrated, but this girls story is just as equally as important. There are a lot of people around the world who have graduated with first class degrees from Ivy League universities that have no job. It has nothing to do with society, it’s just how life is. If God is the center of your life, He will help you succeed in whatever you do, whatever facet of life or phase of life you find yourself in.

  • JUMOKE lawo February 28, 2016 at 1:32 pm

    Freeze is soo damn right! He is making sense let us learn from him Nigeria

    • Abk February 28, 2016 at 3:57 pm

      I agree he is making sense but his delivery is totally off. How you deliver a message is more important than the message itself.

  • Xtra February 28, 2016 at 1:34 pm

    Olajumoke is overrated please

    • Abk February 28, 2016 at 3:58 pm

      She is not overrated. If you can leave such a comment, you should be logical enough time emphasize on it.

      • Abk February 28, 2016 at 3:59 pm

        To emphasize*

      • amadi February 28, 2016 at 11:27 pm

        She is overrated dear. No emphasis needed. You leave a comment and waka past. No one here is obliged to give you an explanation. However if you feel the need to educate us on why you feel she is not overrated as a model that is. Then feel free to drop a few lines. Not promising to read your comment though. As I’m sure it’ll be full of unfiltered A star bullcrap.

      • Abk February 29, 2016 at 7:10 pm

        Amadi, your brain and life are filled with unfiltered A star bullcrap. You could make your point without being so vulgar. Please, run along. You are overrated and so is your life.

  • Evelyn M. February 28, 2016 at 1:37 pm

    Daddy Freeze is so right. He is not trying to do what TY Bello did. I think he wants us to learn and refocus and reprioritize.

  • Bowl February 28, 2016 at 1:51 pm

    And academic excellence does not always translate to excellence in life. To many of these top graders who have nothing to offer humanity.

  • Mama Dee February 28, 2016 at 2:00 pm

    Sigh* the bible says in all your gettings, get WISDOM. Freeze neither condemned Olajumoke’s success story nor how she is being celebrated, he just wants both Olajumoke and Ayodele be celebrated in likewise manner.

  • dontkillthemessenger February 28, 2016 at 2:03 pm

    But guys, lets be honest. There is some sense to what Freeze is saying. To me, he is not trying to dim Jumoke’s light just saying we should celebrate people who achieve formidable feat as well. What this guy achieved is great and should also be afforded opportunities so children can learn from him and take their studies seriously. I’m saying this in agreement because I have observed that Nigerians have a habit of only celebrating celebritydom and not cerebral people. It is considered boring because there is no entertainment value tied to being an efiko. #justsaying

    • jide February 28, 2016 at 3:28 pm

      But what has Freeze himself done to promote Ayodele? For someone who forms big boy of Lagos, has he tried to link Ayodele with any connections? Has he even gone out of his way to meet the guy to say congratulation and put it on Instagram? Instead he is monitoring AY makun’s marriage

      • Yemisi February 28, 2016 at 7:14 pm

        He is doing something now. Putting his thoughts out there for you to ridicule him just so he can bring more light to the guy. Isn’t that what Ty bello did? Put a camera up. Well, freeze is putting a light up on him!

  • Bowl February 28, 2016 at 2:10 pm

    Other than their certificates and academic prowess. High grades only made sense in secondary school. Post grad from medical sch, distinction candidates get a preference at job interviews for residency and then metamorphose into an egg head professors. What makes up these books or courses they read ?serial observations recorded by another man. Mankind eagerly await s a touch of the divine that adds quality and a promise to their lives . So one can understand why jumoke is celebrated. Let our distinction graduates bring us their own face book, Apple, Einstein relativity theory, Nobel peace prize for great agricultural innovations etc.for the most part, academic brilliance assures you plum job (nonsense comfort zone).

  • chichi February 28, 2016 at 2:18 pm

    The cases are just not the same. Jumoke is like gold at the moment. The people who use her for their campaign know that, their product will be instantly recognised as one with the girl who was discovered hawking bread and her life turned around. Yes she is being helped and her life hopefully will never go back to being the same but the people using her are also cashing in. This guy is intelligent and he too will go far but their success stories are so different his continuous success wont make noise because he’s not a model and that’s fine. Again the acknowledgement for him is great but we don’t need to make noise in the same way, unless he cant find a job for years then that’s a crime. Nigeria needs to put these people to good use, these are the hopeful game changers of our country. PS anywhere in the world even UK Jumoke’ story would make an impact.

  • Esther February 28, 2016 at 2:33 pm

    Freeze has a point. But maybe he should have calmed down to perfect the presentation of his idea before he started typing.
    1. Ty Bello discovered the girl while she was WORKING. Olajumoke was not lazing around. I’m pretty sure if she had the privilege of going to the university, and applied the same diligence she did while selling bread, she could have also had a perfect 5.0 too. As others have noted, why can’t you be the Ty Bello in this guy’s life? Ty Bello didn’t sit behind her computer to start calling people out and bashing Nigerians over the girl. she took action, found the girl and with the help of a few people, gave her the first photoshoot session and the rest is history.
    2. Freeze I suggest you hype the guy from ur own side too. after all, u are an OAP. use ur own position to lift him. I think a lot of people rose to help Jumoke cos Ty Bello took the first step. The fact that she was selling bread does not make her less intelligent and she was diligent in her work. Thanks.

  • Oversabi February 28, 2016 at 2:40 pm

    Ice water or antifreeze, I hereby demand that you prove to us that your note is not driven by utter rejection of the fact that olajumoke, a “former bread seller” is now threading in places that matter to you. Put simply, on behalf of progressive bellanaijarian’s I hereby officially accuse you of classism. Your note implies that her type is a dime a dozen and therefore she should have been left on the streets of lagos. I bet you will even suggest you know a prettier bread seller to recommend but then you miss the point. It was her day to be lifted from oblivion and mediocrity by none other than the master chess player aka God. If your note had leaned on her experience to positively call for recognition of accomplished Nigerians like bright Mr Dada whose talent can serve Nigeria well, I would support you. But you had to try to attempt to belittle jumoke to achieve that because you are filled with such disdain for her perceived origins. I can hear that nasty demonic voice in your head that tells you you are not worth more than your wrist watches saying “at least Ayo don baff.” Please don’t wade into this young man’s life. You will reduce him to nothing and infect him with the curse of low self esteem and a life defined by perishables. On a positive note, I’d like to see our Tony Elumelus embrace this young man, give him a job and mentor him. Frisk abi na freeze, don’t let God seal your lips permanently. He came for the poor and needy. How dare you insinuate jumoke is a very rough dirty diamond and Ayo is polished? Do you know how unpolished, rough and embarrassing you look to your creator given that he is an all wise one that made you in his image which you have reduced to a wristwatch made by the mere hands of mortals? Just imagine him cringing when you write these retarded pieces . Stay of social media and save him the embarrassment.

    • jide February 28, 2016 at 3:33 pm

      Real talk considering he doesn’t like to mingle with poor people. Freeze would never have noticed a bread seller in his phootoshoot unless she was wearing pearls, rolex and true religion jeans. Vain superficial fagidi rare. Ironic how this article reeks of elitism yet Dayo ‘s claim to elite life is by association not by birth. Foolish gutter snipe.

    • Babym February 28, 2016 at 3:37 pm

      Buhahahaha thank u very much! U have nailed it, my fear is that this freeze shld not come and taint this better boys prospect with his yamayama ways, he shld just stay away abeg.

  • Dayo February 28, 2016 at 2:42 pm

    There is nothing to compare here. Two different stories. One is a story of favour, the other one is a story of hardwork. If Olajumoke works hard enough and becomes really professional as a model she can find herself on the international stage modeling with the big gunz. Why can’t Freeze be a tool used by God to favour Ayodele? Why can’t he use his platform to help the boy get a job. A person with a 5.0Gpa is not looking to model, he wants to work for a big or maybe small firm, he wants to own his business. Why not invite him to your show and do an interview? Why not introduce him to CEOs, MDs, etc? You don’t need to bring Olajumoke down to praise Ayodele. There is enough room for favor for everyone in Nigeria, we just need to do more helping instead of bashing.

  • O~Intuition! February 28, 2016 at 2:48 pm

    Dear Daddy Freeze start ‘the campaign’ for this 5.0GCPA Graduate…. I believe you know Sujimoto and other famous people. Cos you said you helped connect Ty Bello with ‘Sujimoto people’.
    You can invite the graduate to your radio show. Let him talk about his journey through his school years in psychology cumulative in such high 5.0 GPA. Get him connected to necessary or are they you some sort of influential?
    At least place this graduate on your own professional platform just like Ty Bello did via Official Photography for Jumoke.

    Quit the name calling – ‘Poverty Mentality’…. “Not a Real Achiever”,…

    Grace… Kairos moments…Serendipitous moments… We experience these three at some point in our respective lives. Olajumoke might not be ‘a real achiever’ or she ought not be ‘celebrated first’, as you’ve written. However, she might as well be one who can Excell equally as Ayo if given the opportunity. Not everyone in Nigeria has the privilege to attend universities… Even apprenticeship which is encouraged in developed countries is not well appreciated in developing countries.
    Let’s appreciate her resilience, and determination to make a dignified living even in the face of hopelessness. She started as a Hairdressing apprentice,… down the lane, left her comfort (Osun state) to make sense of life (in lagos)… then for some ‘unexplained’ reasons some folks feel the need to make her ‘BLOOM’.
    Must she earn a 5.0 GPA before she becomes ‘appreciated’? Honestly, let’s be mindful of what we label as ‘poverty mentality’… Let’s Be Perspective!

  • O~Intuition! February 28, 2016 at 2:51 pm

    Some pple like being controversial and whatever it pays them I don’t know. If not that the lady is in limelight u won’t know her name. If she had gone to school she might have earned 5.0GP. If He had being a hawker he might had be spotted and brought into limelight. The guy is a resource person he’s certificate will sell him.

    1 . Both are real achievement

    2. America, UK etc invest time and money in pretty bread sellers and that is why they are ahead.

    3 Mr freeze is elitist which is fine. Because the world, not just Nigerians celebrates olajumoke does make us dreamers looking for success overnight.

  • lacey February 28, 2016 at 4:11 pm

    This clearly shows how Nigerians do not utilize their brains! The whole country is a glorified mess because people don’t develop themselves but waiting to win one project fame,become an actress /actor cum musician,so sickening! No more innovation,best dancer and make up artist being celebrated,where innovative minds are rotting away! I am very happy for Jumoke because she is favored as there is nothing like luck! But what is the economic impact of her discovery to the bottom line of the Nigerian economy? I am joyful for her o,don’t get me wrong,but let’s not stifle innovation!

  • bunmi February 28, 2016 at 4:42 pm

    Not throwing shades on Ola she is very pretty but so are many other girls from very poor backgrounds. It would have being better if she was sponsored onto one of these next top model shows. Along with other girls from difficult backgrounds and made to contest for a modelling contract. So instead of referring to her as the bread seller she can be authenticated as having won the title of nigerias/Africa’s next top model.

      Nawa oh people are now suggesting how God should bless you lol.

    Forgive me my nonsense as I also forgive the nonsense of those who think they talk sense.”

  • Evilicious February 28, 2016 at 10:04 pm

    What???? Omg! My head is spinning well I will reserve my comment. When God blesses you from no where people will be confused, that way you can’t take credit for it because it has to be God. He uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.

  • Evilicious February 28, 2016 at 10:54 pm

    Plus Freeze saying the US doesn’t invest in bread sellers or whatever he said, did Mark zuckerberg finish sch? How about bill gates and Steve jobs? The list is endless. Just because she hawked bread doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve the best in life. In God’s eyes we are all EQUAL. Because she hawked bread, and didn’t go to school in the time line that the world requires doesn’t mean she did not have dreams and goals and it also did not mean that God’s ears weren’t open to her heart cries. This is all God, it has nothing to do with Olajumoke or Ty bello or April. So freeze pls take several seats and allow God enjoy His glory.

      Of cause they invest in bread sellers. Don’t you know they turn them all into models.

    • Suzzy February 29, 2016 at 8:42 pm

      Nice one.

  • Ghost st. Patrick February 29, 2016 at 6:58 am

    Mr. Freeze I beg free Jumoke to shine joor. I bet some producers in nollywood is working on another movie story around Jumokes’ life. Coming out soon!

  • mayfair February 29, 2016 at 10:59 am

    Freeze chop knuckle. The root of Nigerias problems is greed and the desire for easy wealth. To hell with dignity in labour. Nigerians salivate after MONEY like flies to shit. Money is worshipped irrespective of how it’s made or where it comes from. Hence you see people worshipping corrupt politicians , even churches selling the idea of materialism. Nigeria is an oddity. It will always remain the way it is because of the Majority. Ce.

    Reading the comments showcase the typical Nigerians that believe life is all about LUCK! Is there anything really as luck??? Anyway, Freeze you have made your point and I agree with you. Nigerians are in love with frivolities and easy way out. Olajumoke is not an easy way out unlike many; she was a hustler and time and chance changed her life. Now back to the post by Freeze, sincerely speaking this young man deserves some encouragement; unfortunately, our educational system is in ruins that one constantly comes across university graduates with grades as high as 2:1 and still can’t identify their names when joggled up, its dis-heartening. I wonder the kind of graduates our universities are producing in a time when WAEC and JAMB results are bought; admissions into the university is paid for and lecturers are paid to pass their students: all of these makes one look down on even the 1st class graduate. Having said all, there are still rare gems and this Ayodele could be one of them.

    Up u Freeze, priorities should be set straight.
    Getting not just grades but good grades is truly a very big deal.

  • Titi February 29, 2016 at 1:39 pm

    Freeze, God bless u, but a lot of Nigerians will hate u for the truth you just mentioned. A 5.0 GPA is our future, a bread seller is just a story that will end before this year runs out. I wonder who will help my fellow Nigerians. Lets think and innovate, I love Jumoke too and am Happy for her but really how long can her success last…. Investing in that perfect 5.0 GPA score is key. Most wont like this because they are olodo in school and mostly dwell on billionaires that did not go to school stories.

  • Fola February 29, 2016 at 5:22 pm

    Freeze… i completely agree with you. However you can also do something about it… selling one of those your wristwatches and contributing it to Ayodele’s life!

  • Suzzy February 29, 2016 at 8:38 pm

    D issue of Olajumoke is a work of God and go dere .

  • Eky March 1, 2016 at 12:01 am

    It’s not an either/or situation: egghead vs Jumoke! No sir, Uncle Freeze…jeez; why compare agbalumo with seedless grapes? No one can stop Jumoke’s shining, so, please take a seat quickly. Everyone (normal people) love the Cinderella tale that is Jumoke’s….and rejoice with her. Why can’t you? Mr. Egghead is set for life too, by God’s grace. Cuz I’m certain his scholarships and jobs are lined up waiting for him. That’s standard fare! So, park well….mbok!

  • TIJANI OLAYINKA March 4, 2016 at 2:14 pm

    @ Uncle Freeze- jeez you are right but when talking about devine Favour no one can divine it . God dont need the level of your understanding,achivement or even you PHD before he he favour you. He said in His word that “I WILL BLESS THOSE WHO I WILL BLESS AND MAKE THEM GREAT” Jumoke helper found him

  • Olusegun Ladipo March 5, 2016 at 7:54 pm

    Who is this Freeze guy? can’t understand how some Nigerians think, just totally warped! His reasoning that the Unilag best student should be celebrated instead of or more than Jumoke (the former bread seller) now a model, is just fucked and complete garbage. God favored and trust that girl into an unbelievable success story. So also God gave the Unilag student knowledge and understanding to achieve the best result in his school. It is now up to top notch companies, govt agencies or organization to hire him outright. So why try to dismiss her success story as nothing? Please Freeze or whatever u are called, instead of your cheap criticism of jumoke’s celebration, go find something else to criticize that will move Nigeria forward,
