Singer and songwriter, Timi Dakolo, has said that people must now be questioned about the god they mean when they say “I give God the glory.”

Timi said this on Wednesday in reaction to the BBC Africa Eye #SexForFGrades documentary published on Monday.


The 13-minute documentary, which captured the University of Lagos (UNILAG) and the University of Ghana, was centred on exposing sexual harassment of students by lecturers.

A senior lecturer in the Faculty of Arts, UNILAG, Dr Boniface Igbeneghu, was filmed sexually harassing Kiki Mordi, an undercover journalist who posed as a 17-year-old admission seeker in the institution.

Igbeneghu was also the pastor of a local Foursquare Gospel Church in Lagos.

Timi, in his post on Instagram, condemned the lecturer’s use of the pulpit to cover his acts.

He said: “From the BBC sex for grades documentary, Oga Pastor Boniface was even praying and calling Jesus, shouting welcome to the kingdom.

“Nowadays when someone is saying ‘I give God the Glory’ We need to ask ‘which God’?”


Timi’s wife, Busola, had accused the senior pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo, of raping her as a teenager.

She has also pressed charges against the preacher.
