- Recently, the Nigerian social media was buzzing over a viral promotional video of controversial church, COZA, that singer Davido was featured in
- Other musicians later came out to also disassociate themselves from the church
- Top singer, Tiwa Savage, said there might also be a video of her endorsing the church as she steered clear of them
The Commonwealth of Zion Assembly was recently in the news for negative reasons after their senior pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo, made the news for the umpteenth time over a sexual molestation case.
Then a video went viral earlier today showing top singer, Davido, featuring in a promotional advert for the same church. The singer later disassociated himself from the church saying 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.
Shortly after, another musician, Tiwa Savage, also took to her Instastory to say there might also be a video of her appearing to endorse the church. She then disassociated herself by saying she certainly does not endorse the church or its activities.
Tiwa added that she was fraudulently approached to simply comment on how God had been good to her and it has been wrongly edited to deceive people.
Her post reads: “It has been brought to my attention that there is a viral video which includes me advertising an upcoming COZA event.
I want to state that I have nothing to do with the Church and certainly do not endorse their events.
I am extremely disappointed that I was fraudulently approached to simply comment on how good God has been to me and it has been wrongly edited to use my image to create an advert to deceive people.
COZA this is wrong. I will be taking action if this is not immediately retracted.”
See a screenshot of her post below:
Hmm...It seems people are now very wary of being associated with COZA.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that another top singer, Wizkid, has tweeted about not endorsing any fake pastor or church amidst the Davido/COZA saga.
The Soco crooner made it clear that he does not endorse any church or man of God in the country. He added that they would be punished by the Yoruba god of iron, ‘Ogun’.
