Fans Divided Over Controversial Video From Davido’s Signee, Logos Olori

The video by an artist, Olamilekan Taiwo, aka Logos Olori, who is signed to pop star, David Adeleke’s record label— Davido Music Worldwide has caused a major rift between music fans especially on social media.

 The teaser of the video for his Jaye Lo single has been described as insulting by several Muslims.

The 45-second video 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. The footage from the mosque and 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 condemned it.

A Facebook user Ismail Abdulazeez Mantu reacted to the video clip which he shared by saying, “Davido this is a joke taken too far…”. 

Davido had 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.”

But if Davido was attacked on Facebook for his perceived indiscretion, he received some support on Twitter.

Nefertiti tweeting with @Firstladyship stated: “Religion has done more harm than good in Nigeria. While countries are advancing in Tech, STEM Education, Space Engineering, etc, Nigeria is funding pilgrimage to Isreal & to Mecca, & producing street children. An Owambe country without a purpose. Davido should never delete that tweet. When he does, the mob will win. Religious extremism is why you have terrorists everywhere. They even threatened to waylay David in the North. Sorry, he is unavailable”.

The ‘Unavailable” singer has remained silent on the controversy even as he continues to tweet on his music.

He also hasn’t deleted the controversial tweet as at the time of posting this story.
