“He Abandoned Me When I Needed Him” – Gospel Singer Kefee Rubbishes COZA’s Pastor Fatoyinbo In New Interview

Branama queen, Kefee has accused the General Overseer of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of being insensitive to people's plights.
 While trying to clear the air on her alleged scandal with fellow singer, Timaya, the gospel singer in a recent interview with Encomium, mocked the pastor and made reference to his alleged scandal with Ese Walters.
You will recall that Kefee had been criticized by fans and  Christians for featuring a non-christian, Timaya in her hit track – Kokoroko years ago.
Explaining why she featured Timaya in her song, Kefee stated thus:

"Before I react to that question, let me tell you this short true story.  In 2008, I was invited to perform at a church in Abuja for the second time. The publicity for the show was massive as they had distributed invitation card to guests.

People were even calling to confirm if I was going to perform. In fact, I got copies of the flyers weeks before the show.


"I was getting ready to go to the airport when I got a call from the pastor's P.A, asking if I had seen a certain newspaper's story about me concerning my ex-husband Alec Godwin. I said yes, it was a scandal. And he said they don't want to have anything to do with me because of that scandal. Besides, he added that they have top government officials who worship in their church, and all sortS. I said okay, but the so-called senior pastor, who called me initially to plead with me to accept a certain amount because it was a new church couldn't call me anymore. He had to send his P.A to tell me that.
He didn't care what happened to me if what was said about me was true. I felt really low, not because I didn't do the show, but because they cared less what happened to me, because that would have been the end of my career.

Now, I called Timaya. We met at a studio somewhere in Festac town, and Timaya asked me about the same scandal. And he told me what I feel a man of God would've told me.

I remember, he said to me, 'Don't worry, if your hands are clean, you will see God turn things around for you. God will help you, my sister.' I say this in all sobriety, after which we recorded Kokoroko.
When Kokoroko came out and Timi (Dakolo) listened to it, he said "Kefee, you dey make me like God in a different way." Now, you tell me, who acted like a good human? Who would have ever thought that the so-called man of God, who now has his share of scandal and is still planning a robust reply would act that weird?
So, when I heard people talking about me featuring Timaya, it sounded funny.

God can use anything, anybody. Music is an art that transcends all. Timaya was good for that song and he delivered, that's what matters to me.
I don't judge people. If he was a doctor, you won't say he shouldn't treat you because he isn't a Christian. It won't matter then. All you would want is have him do his job and that was what he did. He did a good job on that song, you can't deny that. And to me, that's what counts."

Kefee who is presently furthering her education abroad, runs a restaurant "Branama Kitchen" in Lagos.
