Davido has issued a statement denying involvement in a Christmas advert by the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, COZA, which is currently going viral on social media.
The advert shows Davido, a little girl and a lady talking about a 12 Days of Glory Christmas event set to take place at the church whose leader, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, was accused of rape by Busola Dakolo.
Recall that Davido took a stance with Busola Dakolo and her allegations against the pastor. He even went further to attack businessman Wale Jana for siding with Fatoyinbo.
This had people wondering why he now decided to appear in an advert sponsored by Fatoyinbo’s COZA church.
Issuing a statement to clear the air, Davido wrote as seen in the screenshot below.
The lady who appeared in the video also took to social media to clear the air:
“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”.
