Nigerian musician, Davido has been lambasted on social media for doing a promotional video for COZA church headed by Biodun Fatoyinbo.
Davido has come under severe criticism after taking part in a controversial advetorial for Common Wealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) church.
The anger stems from the fact that the head pastor of COZA, Biodun Fatoyinbo was in recent times accused of rape by Busola Dakolo
who gave graphic details of how it all happened.
Fatoyinbo was later cleared by a court
due to lack of evidence and for the fact that the incident happened a long time ago.
A Twitter user, @UgoIkeakor expressed his disgust over the advert writing:
"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."
Davido in reaction claimed the video was doctored.
He released a statement saying:
“I’m writing quickly to disclaim viral videos going round of me advertising for Coza event to come up.”
“I want to say I have NOTHING whatsoever to do with the church!!! 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 extremest disappoints me”
“It is fraudulent and extremely disrespectful!!! I have never and most certainly am not associated in any way 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 immediately!! A word is enough”
