Backlash to the video was swift, with social media users criticising Davido for featuring in a video promoting the church of the alleged rapist Biodun Fatoyinbo.
The video Davido made for COZA. However @davido has dissociated himself from COZA. “It is fraudulent and extremely disrespectful…I have never and most certainly I am not associated in anyway with COZA” #bonanaija pic.twitter.com/Npxvhx8HlK

Well, Davido has come out to say he has “nothing whatsoever to do with the church.”
He shared a statement on his Twitter that said he did a quick video for a kid that was introduced as a fan, and he had no idea it would be used as a promotional video for a church.
“It is fraudulent and extremely disrespectful,” Davido wrote, adding that he’s reached out to the church to take the video down.
And in a screenshot shared by @fisolalonge, Davido revealed that the little girl in the ad is the daughter of an associate, and he had been urged to feature in the video.

Looks like there won’t be need for Davido “proceeding further” though, as the video’s been taken down from Fatoyinbo’s Instagram, where it was shared.
