Davido has called out Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) Church. The artiste did this over a viral advertorial video of their upcoming programme tagged “12 days of Glory”.
A few days ago, a video of Davido with a little girl and her mum talking about the upcoming religious programme went viral on the internet.

Social media users called out the musician for associating himself with that particular church, especially with all the negative news surrounding its head pastor, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.
Others alleged that the musician must have received payment to make the video.
Davido subsequently made a disclaimer on Twitter. The “Risky” singer said what he did was for a kid introduced to him as a fan. He further explained that he has no association with COZA.
He ordered that the church take down the video from their social media handle so as not to trigger further actions.

Elizabeth Omale, the mother of the child in the video has said her own side of the story. According to her, the video was in no way intended to be an advert.
She stated that she made the video out of excitement for the upcoming programme, and her Pastor only reposted the video.
Meanwhile, social media users remain unconvinced about Davido’s disclaimer, and his description of the kid as a fan. This is because Elizabeth and Davido follow each other on Instagram, meaning that they have a cordial relationship.
In June, Busola Dakolo, a celebrity photographer and the wife of popular artiste Timi Dakolo, accused Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of r****g her 17 years ago, as a teenager.
However, a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Court 12, sitting at Bwari, Abuja dismissed the case filed by Busola Dakolo against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA.
Justice Othman A Musa gave the judgment. He held that the matter amounts to injustice and an abuse of judicial process. The judge also added that the case is empty and purely sentimental.
Justice Musa said that the case aimed more at cruelty than obtaining justice. As a result, the court awarded the sum of ₦1,000,000 against Busola Dakolo. It also held that the fine should have been 10 times more because Busola wasted the court’s time.
Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo is yet to make a public statement on the issue. However, the video has been taken off his social media page.
