Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) Church have put themselves into a big mess and this time it involved singer Davido, few days ago COZA posted a video on their platform using Nigerian singer Davido to promote their program.
People condemned them and also Davido for involving himself in a Church filled with scandals. To clear the air Davido released this statement below;
I am writing to quickly disclaim viral videos going round of me advertising for Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (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 and it extremely disappoints me. It is fraudulent and extremely disrespectful!!!! I have never and most certainly am not associated with 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 the video immediately!! A word is enough!!!!
Well to end the drama they have taken down the video….
See the video if you missed it;
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. pic.twitter.com/fJa1Yvg4qJ

Meanwhile the lady in the video identified as Elizabeth Omale took to her Instagram to give details of what really happened.
According to her, the video was not intended for an official ad for the church but simply her own way of raising awareness for the church. She further revealed that the reports of the singer being an ambassador to the church are false as Davido who happens to be her good friend recorded the video with she and her daughter as a favour.
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.
