A Nigerian man identified as Agozi Comedy has apologised to the gospel singers Nathaniel Bassey and Mercy Chinwo.


Agozi had suggested that Blessed Uzochikwa, Chinwo’s husband, should carry out a DNA test to determine the paternity of their child.

He alleged that their son bears a striking resemblance to Nathaniel Bassey and implied that the latter is the father.

“If you don’t do DNA for the child, in 18 years I don’t want to hear justice for yourself,” he said, addressing Uzochikwa.


“You have been training another man’s child.”

Reacting to the allegations, Bassey petitioned the police.

He asked law enforcement to arrest Agozi and other suspects in the interest of justice.


Uzochikwa also filed a complaint to the magistrate court in Abuja, accusing Agozi and four other social media users of defamation.

The suspects were summoned and are expected to appear before the court on April 23.

Following the development, Agozi wrote a series of Facebook posts on Saturday and apologised to Bassey and Chinwo.

He also shared videos of himself crying, claiming he has been depressed since being served the court papers.


Agozi said his actions were not deliberate.

He pleaded with the singers to “temper justice with mercy”.

“I am very sorry Nathaniel Bassey and Mercy Chinwo. You are like a father and a mother to me,” he said.

“You guys are ministers of the gospel.


“I was carried away by bloggers. I’m not justifying my actions. Please give me a second chance. This won’t repeat itself.

“Please temper justice with mercy and I will join you and serve your God.

“I have repented and followed Jesus. Please be my spiritual guidance so I won’t miss the track again.”
