Chinua Achebe remains one of the world’s best modern writers and his legacy lives on.

#FreeTheSheeple

Since last week, there has been a debate on “tithing” on social media led by Nigerian On Air Personality (OAP), Ifedayo Olarinde popularly known as Daddy Freeze. Using the #FreeTheSheeple hashtag, the OAP calls out Nigerian pastors using their congregations’ tithes to enrich themselves.

Some Nigerians agree with him

While some strongly disagree

He got replies from Nigerian pastors

Ulterior motives?
