Last night, Daddy Freeze made a live broadcast on his verified Facebook page to make some comments about the ongoing debate on who the true owners of Lagos are.Credit: Sahara TV.
Daddy Freeze said, "if you cannot allow such in your state, stop saying igbos and Benin settlers are owners of Lagos state." He added, "the first thing I want you all to know is that the meaning of the word 'lagos' does not matter when we want to know who the owners of Lagos state are. Historically, the land is owned by the Yoruba people but we can debate the ancestry of the people in the state."
Speaking further, Daddy Freeze said, "if we want to look at it geographically or through the map, it will be realized that Lagos state is a Yoruba land because it shares no border with any state that is not a hardcore indigenous Yoruba."
Again, Daddy Freeze said, "someone was telling me that the word 'Lagos' is a Portuguese name and my question to the person was, is 'Port Harcourt' or 'cross river' a traditional word? I don't think 'cross river' is even an efik word."
Furthermore, Daddy Freeze said, "we can come up with all sorts of theories but the fact remains that Lagos state is a melting pot of different cultures because there's a blend of every Nigerian there."
Lastly, Daddy Freeze said, "whether you call Lagos state 'lagos' or 'eko', the land belongs to the Yorubas. It was not a state carved out of different places like Abuja. The only state they cut out of Lagos state was Ogun state."
