Davido reacts to heavy backlash over controversial music video

Kemi Filani reported on Saturday that Davido had made his first public statement following the massive backlash he received for promoting a controversial music video.

The music superstar via his social media pages, had promoted the music video of his new signee, Logos Olori.

However, the video didn’t sit well with many, as some internet users accused him of disrespecting Islamic beliefs and practices.

The controversial music video in question features Logos Olori’s new song titled “Jayelo.”

The video, which was shot in a Mosque-like scene, depicted scenes where some men in white Jalabiya, were observing prayers. After the prayers, the men switched to dancing as they recited some Quranic verses and prayed.

The artist, on his part, imitated the Muslim style of praying while perched on the roof of the building.

Many faithful Muslims had deemed the video offensive and had taken to social media to drag him.

To them, prayer mats hold deep religious significance as they symbolize the sacred act of Salah, a divine connection with the Almighty. As such, any action that could be interpreted as disrespectful or mocking of this holy practice is considered highly offensive.

Some urged Davido to take the video down and apologize, while others expressed their concern over what they perceived as a desecration of sacred elements.

In what seems like a response to the backlash, Davido took to his Twitter page to further promote the video.

Davido stated in one of his tweets that he didn’t want to fight.

“I wan make u show me, make we no dey fight”.

In another tweet, referring to his song ‘Unavailable’, Davido stated that he is yet to be unavailable.

“Una know say ‘Feel’ never start Abi? IN FACT ‘Unavailable’ never start!

No choice logos!! Them go feel am!! MEN MOUNT”.
