Cool FM’s On-Air Personality, OAP, born Ifedapo Oyerinde, popularly known as Freeze, has reportedly been fired by the radio station.
Widely circulated reports have it that the OAP was sacked as a result of his last controversial post on the social media.
Freeze had shared a photo, ‘cuddling’ ace comedian, Basketmouth’s wife whom he referred to as an old family friend, although the comedian, as at press time, hadn’t publicly reacted to the post. (See Photo Below)
The media house, in a notice signed by the Human Resource manager, Oyinkan Adeniyi, posted a picture of the OAP, saying:
“Please be notified that the person whose photograph appears below is no longer in the employment of Steam Broadcasting and Communication Ltd./Cool FM or any of the companies within AIM group.”
But reacting to the development, Freeze, who joined the radio station in 2001, claims that his alleged retrenchment has nothing to do with the reason making the rounds.
Freeze, who has since deleted the post on his Instagram page, wrote:
“I never address or dispel rumors but this is the height of it! @instablog9ja and www.misspetitenaijablog.com have both carried all sorts of slanderous stories about me in the past, without confirmation, before posting their outrageous garbage.”
“But this, trust me, would be their last! If this defamatory and slanderous post is not taken down immediately, and an unreserved apology offered, via the same medium within 24 hrs, I will be forced to take legal action against both blogs.”
