Daddy Freeze backs Omokri; says ‘Bride Price is only paid for Virgins’

Spread the love

Controversial on-air personality, Daddy Freeze has agreed with Reno Omokri that bride price should only be paid for virgins.

According to Omokri, biblically and traditionally, bride price should only be for women who have never engaged in sexual intercourse.

Daddy Freeze who sees no wrong in the remark says he fears that over 85% of Nigerian women won’t qualify if this is implemented.

In his words;

“@renoomokri is right o! And what’s worse, if a woman is given as a virgin and she is found out not to be, she MUST be stoned to death in front of her father’s house for being promiscuous in her fathers house. If this should be implemented, 85% of our women won’t qualify for bride price.

“And for those saying this is the Old Testament, can they please show us any instance in the New Testament where the bride price of a non virgin was paid?

◄ Deuteronomy 22 ►
New Living Translation
[13] “Suppose a man marries a woman, but after sleeping with her, he turns against her [14] and publicly accuses her of shameful conduct, saying, ‘When I married this woman, I discovered she was not a virgin.’ [15] Then the woman’s father and mother must bring the proof of her virginity to the elders as they hold court at the town gate. [16] Her father must say to them, ‘I gave my daughter to this man to be his wife, and now he has turned against her. [17] He has accused her of shameful conduct, saying, “I discovered that your daughter was not a virgin.” But here is the proof of my daughter’s virginity.’ Then they must spread her bed sheet before the elders.

[18] The elders must then take the man and punish him. [19] They must also fine him 100 pieces of silver, which he must pay to the woman’s father because he publicly accused a virgin of Israel of shameful conduct. The woman will then remain the man’s wife, and he may never divorce her.

[20] “But suppose the man’s accusations are true, and he can show that she was not a virgin. [21] The woman must be taken to the door of her father’s home, and there the men of the town must stone her to death, for she has committed a disgraceful crime in Israel by being promiscuous while living in her parents’ home. In this way, you will purge this evil from among you.”

  1. To marry Virgin in Nigeria at the moment, it’s somehow difficult because of our economy is not friendly at all.

  2. I don’t think this is a relevant topic to be discussed at all. It should be a private affair since no lady will accept she has indulged in sexual intercourse before

  3. Even this may also be applicable to you, therefore, some things have changed drastically. May Almighty God have mercy on us.

  4. Though, this incident is preventable but due to the what we are experiencing in terms of hardship, a lot of things has been happening in this country which leads to some mess up.

  5. Bride price is a must which must be paid and it must be even paid before any intercourse according to the word of God. Therefore, whether virgin or not, you must paid.

  6. All this was in that time,it can’t be implemented now anymore because we re all in a modelised world now.
    Virginity or not you will still marry her in as much the love is there.

  7. That is true but if that is the case then nobody is going to get married because of what some ladies have done before getting married can not be mentioned…

  8. Yea.. RENO OMOKRI is right, But I believe is this statement was coming from a pastor DADY freeze would have look for a way to counter such statement.

  9. Did the Omokri and Daddy Freeze married their wives as virgins? Or maybe they are trying to tell us that they didn’t pay their wives bride price, because I know that their wives are not virgin when they paid their bride price.
