Daddy Freeze has reacted to Lagos Police Spokesperson, Bala Elkana’s claim about tattoo and dreadlocks being new to Nigerian culture. In an interview with BBC Pidgin, Bala Elkana alleged that police authorities have noted a connection between cultism and people that sport dreadlocks and draw tattoos on their bodies. He, however, condemned the killing of Kolade Johnson whose death has led to an outrage across social media.
Daddy Freeze who reacted to the Lagos Police Spokesperson claim about tattoo and dreadlocks, disclosed that his Yoruba grand mother had tattoos. He further disclosed that kids born with dread are called ‘dada’, and wondered the link to it being new in Nigerian culture.

In my humble opinion, this statement reeks prejudice and stereotyping. – By the way, my Yoruba grand mother had tattoos, there were local tattoos that women wore back then, my grandma had them. Kids born with dread are called ‘dada’ so I’m not getting this. ~FRZ – #FreeTheSheeple
