Davido, Nigeria’s Afropop singer, has denied involvement in any deal advertising for the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly’s (COZA) ahead of its forthcoming event.
Biodun Fatoyinbo, founder of the COZA church, has been in a legal battle with Busola Dakolo, Nigerian celebrity photographer, after the latter accused him of rape on two occasions.
Following a video ad themed ’12 Days of Glory’ making the rounds on social media and suggesting the singer was campaigning for COZA’s fasting and prayer programme, Davido took to Twitter to issue a refutal.
Suggesting he might be forced to proceed with legal action if the video is not retracted by the individuals who put them out, Davido also assured fans he has nothing to do with the church.
According to him, he had only made a clip with a kid who had been introduced as a fan only for it to be “chopped up” and used for “fraudulent purposes.”
“I’m writing to quickly disclaim viral videos going round of me advertising for a COZA event to come up. I want to say that I have nothing whatsoever to do with the church!” the singer wrote on Thursday.
“The fact that 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 associated and most certainly will never associate with the COZA church.
“I have reached out to those responsible for this madness immediately. I will most certainly be proceeding further if you don’t retract that video immediately. A word is enough.”

Meanwhile, a high court in Abuja had imposed a fine of N1 million on Dakolo’s lawyer and dismissed Dakolo’s rape case against Fatoyinbo.
But the photographer vowed to approach a superior court on the matter.
