It was more of a disappointing Sunday service especially for those who had thronged the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) in Abuja to listen to the senior pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo, ‘confess his sins’ to members of his congregation.
To genuine worshippers, it was another Sunday to fellowship in God’s presence irrespective of the cloud of uncertainty that had enveloped the church and its General Overseer since on Thursday.
Last week, two ladies, Ese Walters and Franca E, came out in successive revelations to accuse Pastor Biodun of infidelity and sexual abuse. As expected, the news generated a lot of heated debates with many looking to Sunday, today, with the hope that the accused would deny or confirm the weighty allegations.
However, many a hope was dashed as the Pastor decided against addressing the scandal head-on as he told the fully-packed dome that “If anyone is accusing you, it is because they need what you have.”
Appearing not the least ruffled by the allegations and the backlash it generated, Pastor Biodun said “I know you have read things about me on the social media and people advice me not to talk, but ignore it”, he, however, said for the sake of his congregation, which he would not want to take for granted, the scandal would be addressed at a later date.
He also admitted that a lot of people attended the church service just to hear what he would say.
“Now read my lips” he said, “because I know there are people here that are not part of my church. We are going to speak but we are consulting so as to release a robust reply to all the allegations. One thing you can be assured of is that my wife and I love each other and at the right time, we shall respond”.
Pastor Biodun, however, likened his current travails to the adversity encountered by Joseph and Isaac in the bible on their way to greatness.
The theme of his message which centered on leaving life’s battles to God, might just be an indication that Pastor Biodun has no intention of engaging in public debate with his accusers on the allegation of sexual impropriety.
Meanwhile, in what may just be his biggest support yet since the scandal broke out, renowned American televangelist and prosperity preacher, Dr. Mike Murdock, has lent public support to Pastor Biodun on Twitter.
“#PastorBiodun Is One of The Most Integrity Leaders I Have Known. Attack..Is Proof of Divine Favor,” he wrote.
How it all went down when 9mobile met its subscribers in Kano…
9mobile customers in Kano had an opportunity to interact with and provide first-hand feedback to the management team of the telecommunication company during the Customer Forum which took place recently in Kano.
The Forum which is aimed at deepening the brand’s relationship with subscribers on network saw customers asking questions and sharing experiences with the leading network.

“This forum is very important to us.

Infinix Note 8 on celebrity talk show Rubbin minds with Ebuka, first smart phone in Nigeria
Last Sunday, the Rubbin minds show took an unexpected but totally pleasant turn as popular presenter and
anchor of the show, Ebuka featured Infinix Content Manager, Kevin Olumese, on a special edition for the recently
launched Infinix Note 8.
If you’d cast your mind not so far back, you’d remember that Infinix set a record with the Note 8’s predecessor
(Note 7) earlier this year when it was launched in a short, Infinix-customized show which was studded with
celebrities. On Sunday, Infinix set another record as it became the first smartphone to be launched on the
celebrity talk show- Rubbin Minds.
If there’s anything that’s more interesting than the sound of this new achievement, it surely will be how exactly the
show went down.
As usual, Ebuka drilled deep into the business of his guest which, on this show, was the Infinix Note 8. No
questions were spared and Kevin, Infinix’s representative, did well to provide precise answers to every question
asked as regards the Infinix Note 8 and the Infinix brand on the show. And, as usual, both the anchor, guest and
most certainly, the viewers at home had a great time sharing laughs and conversation around the Note 8. The
show got off to an early start as Ebuka asked why the Note 8 was codenamed the Night Shot King. Kevin’s
simple answer to the question was “Simply put, it takes awesome shots at night.” However, he did us one better
as he explained in more detail what the Note 8’s night shot camera has to offer.
According to Kevin – and, backed up by several reviews online – the Note 8 comes with a 64MP Ultra HD, Nights
shot camera that introduces adequate lighting into low-light scenes and makes it possible to capture beautifully lit
images with true-to-life beauty and rich colours during the night time.
Kevin posited that this device could not have come at a better time than now. His reason for holding that position is that if the pandemic has thought us anything it’d be to cherish the moments that we get to share
together. Luckily, the lock-down has been eased all over the world and lovers, friends and people in general are
beginning to meet and hangout with themselves once again. Because these meetings are more special than they
used to be, it’s only apt for us to want to have them captured and saved up regardless of the time and the Note 8
makes sure that this is achievable at any time round the clock.
Among other features of the Note 8 that was discussed on the show was the device’s 6.95inch HD+ screen. The
super-wide screen is good for mobile gaming, Netflix or YouTube binging, bantering on social media and
consuming every form of visual content.
Other features include the 16Mp dual selfie camera that sits right in the top left corner of the devices screen, eliminates the upper notch, and captures crisp images. The device also comes with a mobile game-dedicated
processor called the MediaTek Helio G80 processor and runs on a 5200mAh battery.
During the course of the show, Kevin also revealed other things like why the brand adopts the type of designs
and uses the colour options that it currently uses for its product. He also shed some light on why Infinix has
Davido as its brand ambassador and why the brand has a keen interest in entertainment. This was a very
expository moment on the show.
Towards the tail end of the event, Infinix announced two of its empowerment activities that are already ongoing.
The first is the Storm X challenge, designed for young entertainers who can either dance or sing. Infinix has
promised to reward the winner of the challenge with the opportunity to feature one of Nigeria’s leading artiste.
The other empowerment activity is called the #EmpoweredByinfnixNote8 campaign and is targeted towards
young entrepreneurs. At the end of the campaign, lucky entrepreneurs will walk away with 1million naira
Interested participants can follow @Infinixnigeria on Facebook, Twitter r Instagram to get more details on any of
the empowerment activities.
This special edition of the Rubbin minds show was truly insightful and engaging and Infinix is set to entertain
viewers once more as they also announced that they’d be the lead sponsor of the second edition of the Turn Up
Friday which is set to kick off later this month.
Infinix has always devised means to connect better with their fans, and they seem to be intensifying their efforts
during this final quarter of the year. Hopefully, this move will yield great dividend for them as they prepare for the
end of the year.
