It is estimated that Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo has a net worth of 5 million dollars.

Fatoyinbo has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault. First in August 2013 when Ese Walter alleged that Fatoyinbo had a sexual relationship with her while she worked in the church.

Sometime in June 2019, Busola Dakolo a celebrity photographer and wife to a gospel singer, Timi Dakolo also alleged that Fatoyinbo, on two different occasion, raped her as a minor about 20 years previously. However, Fatoyinbo denied the allegation. Busola Dakolo proceeded to filed a rape complaint against Fatoyinbo, which the court dismissed, ruling that the case was empty and purely sentimental. The court fined Busola a sum of 1 Milion Naira for wasting the court’s time.

In January 2022 a former member of the COZA known as Nnenna Kalu-Ude accused Biodun Fatoyinbo complicity in the death of Tega Akpofure, a member of the COZA music team. Akpofure’s husband subsequently contradicted the allegation.

After a seven-month struggle, Rev. Biodun Fatoyinbo, the founder of COZA Church, is making a slow but steady recovery following a stroke.

Since April, when he supposedly suffered a stroke, Fatoyinbo has been completely absent from public view.

He is currently participating in a crusade in Manchester along with some members of his family and church.
