Joy Isi Bewaji: On a scale of basic intelligence, Timi Dakolo is a foetus

Last week saw singer Timi Dakolo and OAP Daddy Freeze exchange words on social media, over Timi's thoughts on marriage, tithing and divorce. Freeze responded and Timi gave a comeback. Unfortunately for Timi, this incidence led to the tainting of his initial "pristine" image as gospel singer and "world's best husband!", as allegations of his mistress popped up all over. Oh well, here's Joy Isi Bewaji doing what she knows how to do best; dishing it hot in her ballsy take-no-prisoners manner, as per usual. 😊. 

What Timi Dakolo said...

“We as Christians give our tithes to God. Whether pastor chop or not na im go answer to God.”

“A canal mind cannot understand the things of the spirit.”

“You don’t have any right to talk about marriage when you are a divorcee (or unmarried)”

“You need patience and understanding and high level of communication to stay married.”

"This generation is impatient."
And the worst of the bunch goes thus…

“All men love curves and boobs and a beautiful face, but we would forever respect a complete and intelligent woman.”

Yet all of you – obtuse and brain-dead are clamouring to place a crown on his head.

What do you find in this tedious, colourless spittle that makes it any less redundant as the yarn of any average Nigerian?

This is what your great grandfathers said. It is what your grandmothers told your mother. It is what your mother is spitting all over your face for the last 30 years, so much that you can’t think of any real success that doesn't include a man.

There’s no revelation in these excerpts, no thorough or profound thinking. His word are as dull as he looks. But you all need to preserve old traditions, so you line up on his IG spreading your bras and pants for him to walk on because nothing satisfies the average dull Nigerian beyond a broken record of repeated stuff that conceals his/her inability to think for self.

Timi is not a thinker. He is nothing close to Freeze on a scale of intelligence. Freeze is not perfect, but neither are you or Timi. Side chick gossip about Timi is out, and Timi is taking videos of himself smiling… like a child in need of new knowledge. Olodo rabata.

You don’t like Feeze because he dedicates his time to shame your twisted religion. If he isn’t saying something worthy of attention, why do you pay him any?

On a scale of basic intelligence, Timi is a foetus where Freeze is grey and tending to his garden.

You are all afraid. Afraid that these things we talk about will force you to think, apply your brain. And since it’s just an empty skull with cobwebs that you possess, truth startles you, exposes your lack of sense; and the emptiness causes an echo that travels too far for your comfort.

Nigerian celebrities are probably the most ignorant group of individuals you can find in one space. All you need to do is ask them about feminism, marriage, religion, domestic violence, even rape, and all the maggots suggestive of a brain rotten out of neglect starts to crawl out of their mouths, noses and ears.

I don’t care for this topic, but be ashamed that you can’t help being so wow-ed by basic common knowledge. What really is this shit that is making you all go gaga in excitement? You think your instant love for Timi and his ho-hum comments will faze Daddy Freeze?


Abeg, it's 5pm. Let me close work and enter traffic.


Who else thinks Timi wishes he had just kept quiet and focused on his music and instagram videos in the first place? 


  1. what I think is that Joy etc etc is a passive aggressive woman who can't seem to show her disapproval about things without an inner soreness leaking into her words.
    Timi too didn't cover himself in glory either.


  2. Please she should gan sit down... most of the times freeze talks like an untrained child. And in this brouhaha Timi won hands down... someone that's intelligent doesn't talk carelessly online. This Joy is just an attention seeker, she and freeze. Timi was on his own, they jumped into his post and missed the point completely

  3. Sigh.

    We need more tolerance on social media. Joy Bewaji's article is unnecessarily insulting. There are ways to drive your points across without sounding rude.

    First, I think everyone including Timi is entitled to their own personal opinion and if a person does not address you directly, then you don't have to respond and if you must do so, do it in a non-aggressive manner. No be fight.

    Timi may not be the most articulate person, but he made some sense in his first article. People are entering into marriage ill-prepared this days and the effects are appalling.

    As for the matter of side chicks, we cannot deal with speculation, let the rumor mongerers name names and post picture or chats, then we can take them seriously.

    As for Daddy Freeze, he makes sense some times... And some other times he is too aggressive, is absolutely wrong and does not mind his business. But that makes him human, no one's perfect.

    I kinda agree with Freeze on the tithe matter... It's there explicitly in Deuteronomy. And the church I attend does not dwell on tithes, we give offerings towards visible projects /causes , to the poor and to support the church. I believe that clergy men/pastors should not live ostentatious lives. But if people choose to give tithes to pastors who live lavish lives at the expense of their members, it is absolutely none of my business cos it's not my money.

    I think Timi should have just ignored Freeze, the unnecessary back and forth banter and mudslinging was very childish in my opinion.

    Finally, I think we should just learn to live and let live.. How did we survive without social media?


  4. Timi would have not given the advice in the first place and daddy freeze is like a roaring lion looking for who to devour.

  5. Comprehension problem. If you read Timi's post and Freezes reply you will notice that they were making different points. Valid but different points. While Timi was emphasising the seriousness of marriage and the need to enter prepared so as not to rush in and out of it, Freeze interpreted that to mean one should stay in marriage no matter what.

    If freeze takes a moment to read and comprehend he will comment less on SM. I didn't expect Timi to reply, the way he even started his reply put me off. Two grown men acting like kids. J

  6. This Joy whatever her name is, is trying too hard. We don't want to notice you is it by force?

  7. What I think is that aunty joy is one bitter and obnoxious individual. Why so stuffed with bile about who and what other people choose to believe in or stand for? While he shouldn't have bothered with Freeze and his petulant attempts to be noticed, Timi has a right to what he chooses to write on his personal page, it's the bebelube agbaya who will never fit into the expression "the older the wine, the better" that needs some serious head evaluation.
    Every time I see the name freeze, I just glaze over it as his level of petty makes me weep for whatever seed has/shall spring forth from him. Now Joy clearly has no joy in her life, else she would have been able to pass her opinion with a shred of civility expected of any rationale thinking person.
    "On the scale of basic intelligence, Timi Dakolo is a foetus" says the woman that as far as I'm concerned is a zygote on the same scale!

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
