‘COZA out to take young music talents off streets’
Senior Pastor, Commonwealth of God Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo, has said the music talent hunt the church launched in 2016 is focused on identifying gifted young people with a view to taking them off the streets.
Fatoyinbo, who spoke yesterday at the launch of an album, ”Hello World” by the Gratitude Music Group, which benefited from the talent hunt, also said the programme has become an annual event for young talented people across Africa.
”When you look around the country today, many talented youths cutting across professions are begging to be assisted to stardom, hence we at COZA decided to look for young people with music talents, train them to become world class stars,” he added.
He stressed that the move was aimed at taking them away from the streets, help them become music ambassadors for Jesus Christ first, as well as, source of living”
He noted that even before launching the album, the Gratitude had released a single, ”Rabababaeh’,’ which topped musical charts globally with secular songs.
The Pastor said his decision, which was drawn from his 20-year-old dream in October, 2016 made him to call for the selection of young people with talents in music that has made the gratitude Music group of today.
”We only call for interested people all over Nigeria, we conducted a talent hunt or interviews for them, those who were found good were brought in, got them a house, provided vehicles for them and put them on a salary scale, today you can see the benefits yourself, I tell you this is the best ways of getting them out of the streets”.
