Daddy Freeze, a well-known Nigerian media personality/OAP, has slammed veteran Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji for claiming that one’s mental health is extremely spiritual.
Late this week, Genevieve, a Nollywood award-winning actress, used her Instagram story to make a statement about mental health being more spiritual than physical.
She encouraged people to rededicate their lives to God, serve Him, and be rebaptized.
Daddy Freeze carpeted her, saying that just because you’re a celebrity doesn’t make you an expert on anything.
He confronted her, claiming that if she had said that mental health includes both physical and spiritual well-being, he would have agreed.
He went on to say that her remark is the reason why churches are full of pastors who lie to treat craziness rather than sending people to the hospital.
“I humbly disagree and here are my reasons. After studying psychiatry and spirituality for decades you make this deduction? I say this all the time because a celebrity has a huge following doesn’t necessarily make them an authority on issues. If she said it was both spiritual and physical I’d agree that that’s her opinion.
However, to caterogically state that it’s more spiritual than physical is the reason why churches are filled with pastors trying to cure madness with speaking in tongues, olive oil and prayers, instead of sending people for proper psychiatric evaluation and treatment.
God has already sorted out our mental health issues, that’s why we have hospitals!”.
