Davido Deletes Controversial Video Following Anger From Muslim Fans

Nigerian music star, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has deleted the much-controversial music video of his signee, Logos Olori.

Davido had come under severe criticism over the 45-second video which was posted on Saturday.

The clip featured some men wearing white jalabia and caps, and dancing in front of a mosque. Olori also sat on a speaker mounted on the roof of the building. This and the fact that the singer mentioned the word— Alhamdulillah (praise be to God)— did not go down well with some of their fans, especially Muslims, who described the entire clip as inappropriate.

Davido posted the video on Instagram with the caption, “Allow me to re-introduce Logos Olori with his new single, ’Jaye Lo.’ Let us run it up one time! Let’s take over the world. DMW.”

Davido finally caved to pressure and deleted the video two days after receiving criticism which reached its heights with a post by Kannywood veteran Ali Nuhu.

But despite deleting the post, the musician hasn’t tendered am apology.
