Many celebrities are walking brands and they try not to let anything stain their image or credibility so they are careful with organisations they work with.
Just recently, a promotional video for a controversial church, Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), made the rounds on social media and popular singer Davido was featured in it.
Many Nigerians reacted to the musician’s presence in the video and the comments were not positive ones. Davido then addressed the issue and said that he never did a video promoting the church event. He said the little girl in the clip was introduced to him as a fan and he had a chat with her.
The singer also revealed that he had talked to the church to take down the video. He noted that what they did is disappointing and fraudulent. He added that he had never been associated with the church in that way.
The lady in the video who happens to be the mother of the little girl has also reacted to the uproar by apologising what she called a misrepresentation.
According to her, the video was in no way meant to be an official advert for her church and that Davido only recorded the video with her and her daughter as a favour to a friend.
Her caption in the now deleted post reads: “I would like to make some clarifications on the video I recorded with @davidoofficial for my church, the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA). The video was in no way intended to be an official ad from the church. It was simply my way of raising awareness for a program I am passionate about.
I have read reports online claiming that Davido is coming to the program as an ambassador of COZA because of the video, these reports are false. He recorded that video with me and my daughter as a favour to a friend, nothing more. Also, my pastor, Pastor Biodun only reposted the video from my page because he has been reposting videos about the program. My video wasn’t the only one on his page.
The video was a product of my excitement about 12DG and there was no malice intended. I apologize for the confusion and misrepresentation, and once again I’d like to say I acted as an individual and not as an official representative of COZA. Thank you."
