I Don't Think Jhene Aiko Deserved To Be Slaughtered On Social Media - OAP Freeze Stands With Jhene

The story of what happened between Jhene Aiko and her Nigerian husband Dot Da Genius has been pretty one-sided publicly to this point. Jhene accused Dot of being abusive and sort of denied the claims that the split had to do with her very public and fluid working chemistry with Big Sean.

Now, Dot Da Genius is speaking out. Taking to Instagram late last night (August 15) he denied being abusive in any way and says his delayed response to the accusations was in concern for privacy about their situation. He wrote:
"Because my nature [is] peaceful, I’ve been silent out of respect for all involved, and to maintain my privacy," he wrote in a note posted to the social media site. "However, I believe the truth must be heard, which is that I’ve never been violent or abusive towards any woman in my life. Such behavior is abhorrent to me and far from how I conduct myself. Moving forward, I will continue to focus on my family, friends, and music, and soon enough the entire truth shall come to light.”

Jhene Aiko filed for divorce last week. Her marriage to Dot Da Genius only lasted just under a year as Aiko cited “irreconcilable differences” on her divorce filing. She also asked that the judge deny Dot any spousal support.

After the news broke, many Nigerians were against Jhene walking out on her husband and filling for a divorce. However, OAP Freeze stands with Jhene Aiko on her decision, he wrote: 

"The ‘volatile’ social media of 2016, allows victims to be torn apart by people, who oftimes are in worse off situations. I watched with utter amazement, as a 44 year old spinster, tore Jhene to shreds over her cheating allegations/divorce. .
.
Because of this social media, that gives everyone a microphone, the spinster, who has never been married and has no children can condemn another woman’s choice. The first question on my mind was “Madam, how come you are not married at 44?” but fear no let me, as it was obvious that the poor mare needed an outlet to vent her frustration.

When Jhene started trending, I read tweets with awe, people who had little or no access to the real information, became ‘professors,' earning their PHDs and Masters on the subject, after spending all of 5 minutes digesting the story on TMZ. .
.
Some others who weren’t afforded the education TMZ gave, relied solely on Facebook and Twitter, for their ONDs and HNDs on the subject. I respect Jhene for deciding to end a ‘fungating’ relationship.
.
.
There are a few reasons why a woman would cheat, the worst being that her heart is no longer in the relationship. Should she have stayed and continued cheating, or moved on? Some suggested that she should have stayed and fixed her marriage, despite allegations of violence. .
.
Hmm, like that gentleman in Ibadan who went home to try to fix his marriage after he was stabbed once? The poor guy is in the graveyard, with the story more or less buried with him. Same thing with that pretty lagos banker, who died trying to fix her marriage. .
.
This year alone I have come across 4 or 5 of such stories, and wonder when, if at all, people are going to learn. In the western world, they are not burdened with the responsibility we have, of pretending all is well on the home front, while we slide in and out of DMs and hotel rooms, yet ‘forming’ self righteous.
.
.
Also, they don't enjoy the luxury of having some confused men of God, who are more worried about a couple going for deliverance for engaging in daily sex, or whether a woman knows how to cook or not, instead of facing what Jesus called them to do."
