CONTROVERSIAL OAP, Ifedayo Olarinde aka Daddy Freeze, has said he is ready to defend himself should the FBI invite him for questioning concerning his relationship with an alleged internet fraudster, Ramon Abass aka Hushpuppi.

Daddy Freeze said this on his verified Instagram handle in a video titled, “Abba Kyari denies Huspuppi bribe allegation; says hands clean.”

His remarks were made on the backdrop of the recent announcement by the FBI that it was seeking Kyari’s arrest over allegations that he abetted a $1.1 million transnational cyber-fraud initiated by Hushpuppi, a Nigerian Instagram celebrity.

Hushpuppi was arrested in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in connection to the case and other fraudulent schemes.

Following the announcement, some Nigerians on social media referenced Daddy Freeze’s 2019 visit to Hushpuppi’s Palazzo Versace home in Dubai saying it was only a matter of time before the FBI came after the controversial broadcaster.

Responding to his critics, the broadcaster explained that he was in Dubai for a Cool FM event when Hushpuppi reached out to him.

He said: “You guys need to get away from this mentality that anybody who gets to hang out with anybody must be collecting money from that person. I will not lie I am disappointed in Hush and if I see him I will tell him. Because you fed the rumours, tomorrow if somebody is buying a Ferrari then the person must be a thief

Someone said Freeze dey fear, I don talk before when you no get sense you go dey talk nonsense, I don talk am say if FBI wants to question me, make them dare me I ready answer anybody question,” he said in pidgin.

“What do I have to hide? Do I have anything to hide? They will come and sit down and look at all my bank details. Let them just look…let them check all the notes I have and see if there is anything that looks like ‘Dubai money’ that can be traced to Hushpuppi, they should come, for free. It is when you have something to hide that you will be worried about. What I wanted from Hushpuppi was an interview…”  – (Text excluding headline from PremiumTimes/Nation)
