“The fact I did a quick video for a kid introduced as a fan just for her personal use and it was chopped up and used for such an advert extremely disappoints me.

“It is fraudulent and extremely disrespectful! I have never and definitely not associated with COZA church and have reached out to those responsible for this madness immediately!

“I will most certainly be proceeding further if you do not retract that video. A word is enough!”

COZA, Davido under attack over viral video

Popular Nigerian singer Davido and the management of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly have come under attack over a recent viral video

Davido in the viral video posted by Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo on his official Instagram page was seen with a young girl advertising the program.

However, Davido denied having knowledge of the video, explaining that he just made a video for a fan for personal use and had no idea it was going to be used for an advert.

He threatened to take the case further if COZA and those involved do not take down the video, adding that he has nothing to do with the church.

But some Nigerians on social media queried the authenticity of Davido’s response, adding that there was no way the video was used without his consent.

Also, some took a swipe at Biodun Fatoyinbo for using Davido who is a secular artiste to publicize a church program.

Meanwhile, Fatoyinbo has taken down the video posted on his page earlier.

Here are some comments gathered  from Twitter;

@UgoIkeakor “Biko who advised Davido to record this promotional video for COZA 12 days of Glory? Totally disappointed. You people should do better. Biodun Fatoyinbo we see your PR work with Davido, but the world knows who you’re.

@Fisayosoyombo “There’s a BIG value deficit issue at COZA. It doesn’t add up that a church uses a secular artiste like
Davido
to promote a 12-day prog of “fasting, intense worship, consecration, ballistic prayers and miracles”.This mismatch is more worrying than Davido’s disowning of COZA.”

@Omojuwa “He said he didn’t give consent. But interestingly, COZA CEO Fatoyinbo has removed the video from his IG page. If Davido gave them consent, why would he remove it? And I watched the video, it’s easy to see how Davido could have been used without knowing what was going on.”

@UgwunnaEjikem “I honestly don’t get why folks still attend/defend COZA after all these stunts, why would they even wanna use Davido to promote a church event whether original or doctored. As for Davido on a critical look, it’s hard to believe that video was doctored he should try another scope.”

@Yakafachan “While Davido’s explanation may not fit, it is important to note the real victory here. What is the real victory? That Biodun Fatoyinbo And COZA are such a tarnished brand that people will jump through hoops to dissociate themselves from both.I consider this victory.”

@Torresblog24 “Meanwhile DAVIDO doing PR work for COZA is not a bad thing, for me it’s just a means of evangelism, most of Davido fans will attend the program.”

@Pastor_CVB “COZA never trends for the right reasons and that alone is a shame. From one shameful act to another.What an organization.”

@TheIjebu_badoo “COZA wan use Davido launder their reputation. 12 days of glory ko, 12 days of glory osei ni. Glory ki them there, awon olofo!

@Adunni_Achebe “COZA can never trend for the right reasons. What’s worrisome is not that they allegedly used Davido’s video without his consent, but that they’re using a secular artist to promote a church program.
I could be wrong but I think that’s like having Mia Khalifa promote Shiloh.

@_Orogbene “Whether Davido agreed to promote COZA or not is not even my own bone of contention. My own is the fact that a church organized a competition for who can promote their program the most, with a handsome reward at that. The desperation to shove this COZA down our throats is real.

Davido Vs Coza: Lady In Controversial Video Finally Speaks

Elizabeth Omale, the lady whose baby was in the controversial promotional video alongside Davido, has finally cleared the air.

The video was thought to be a promotional video for an event in the COZA church until Davido debunked doing any promotional video for the church.

The lady in her reaction via her social media page cleared the air by stating that the video was in no way an official PR from the church.

“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.”
