Davido deletes controversial music video after criticism

Davido, the Afrobeats star, has deleted the controversial music video of Logos Olori, his signee, following the widespread criticism.

On Friday, Olori released his debut single titled ‘Jaye Lo,’ along with a music video.

Shortly after the song’s release, Davido took to social media to promote a snippet from the visuals.

In the 45-second clip, some men dressed in white Jalabiya could be seen dancing in front of a mosque, instead of praying.

The video attracted a chorus of condemnation from many Muslim devotees; some of whom called for it to be pulled down.

Joining the fray, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) called on the Department of State Services (DSS) to probe Davido following the controversial music video.

In a statement, MURIC accused Logos Olori and Davido of showing “no modicum of respect for the Islamic faith”.

The rights group also called for the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) and National Film And Video Censors Board (NFVCB) to ban the video.

MURIC gave Davido and Logos Olori seven days to take down the video or face spiritual and legal consequences.

In the wake of the backlash, Davido finally bowed to pressure and deleted the video.

Checks by TheCable Lifestyle on Monday showed that the video is no longer on the singer’s social media accounts.
