Daddy Freeze has countered Pere after the Big Brother Naija star charged Nigerians to switch off their phones at certain times during their flight for safety’s sake.
Pere said passengers should postpone whatever they want to do with their phones and obey the flight crew when they ask them to switch off their phones. Responding, Daddy Freeze said there is “absolutely nothing” wrong with leaving phones on during takeoff and before the plane lands. He added that even if a mobile phone is on a call during those critical times of a flight, it doesn’t affect the equipment of a modern aircraft.
He then challenged pilots to engage him in a debate on the matter.
Pere tweeted: Dear Nigerians, when the flight crew says turn off all mobile devices especially during the critical phases of taking off and landing, TURN IT OFF! Those texts and calls can wait! Safety first! Happy Friday!
Daddy Freeze responded elaborately: Dear Nigerians, rest your minds, there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING a mobile phone can do to the equipment of a modern aircraft even if the mobile phone is on a call during the landing and taking off. I hereby challenge any pilot to debate this with me. The only reason why you are told to switch off your phones is for security reasons. So someone won’t call from the flight and say there’s a bomb or the plane is about to crash. Knowledge is power!
