Nigerian musicians, Tiwa Savage and Wizkid has accused the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) of fraudulently manipulating videos in which he appeared to have endorsed an upcoming programme by the church.
Tiwa vehemently warned the church to retract the video as she does not endorse the church or their event and she was fraudulently approached to simply state how God had been good to her this year.
Tiwa savage wrote:
“It has been brought to my attention that there is a viral video which includes me advertising an upcoming COZA event.
I want to state that i have nothing to do with the Church and certainly do not endorse their events.
I am extremely disappioned that i was fraudulently approached to simply comment on how good God has been to me and it has been wrongly edited to use my image to create an advert to decieve people.
COZA this is wrong. I will be taking action if this is not immediately retracted.”
Wizkid while reacting to the video featuring himself, said Ogun will kill fake pastors.
“Starboy no dey endorse no Pastor or church o! Ogun kill u fake pastors!
And for dat lady that put a camera in my face! Ogun kiss u and your church”
Davido threatened to initiate legal proceedings against the lady behind the video if it is not retracted immediately.

Elizabeth Omale, the lady behind the video however apologized over the misrepresentation the viral video ignited. She also disclosed that Davido never did an advert for COZA.
