Davido berated over offensive music video

Share This

Afrobeats star David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, on Saturday sparked an outrage on social media after posting a video on Twitter which some of his followers considered disrespectful to Islam.

Davido in the tweet accompanying the video had said: Allow me to re-introduce, @logosori with his new single Jaye Lo Lets Run It Up one time! Lets take over the world.

In the video, a group of men, all in white jalamiya, are seen praying.

Then, in a twist, they all transitioned into dancing.

The reactions that followed were scathing, as some gnetizens deemed it an affront to the Islam religion from the singer.

Bashir Ahmad @BashirAhmaad, a former aide to ex-President Muhammadu Buhari, said: There are many reasons why every Muslim finds this content absolutely disrespectful, hurtful and offensive @davido. I assume you all know that we Muslims dont mix our religion with jokes in any way, especially Salah (prayer), which is sacred and the second of the five pillars of Islam.

In Salah, Muslims remember our Lord, Allah, express our love and respect for Him and invoke and strive to express our gratitude towards Him. The notion is that the Salah activity brings the individual face-to-face with God.

That is what we believe, and that is our faith. Please respect it. No Muslim will find it as an honor or acceptable.

You all know Muslim doesnt mix jokes and ridicule into religion but you keep finding a way to deride Islamic religious practice. You have millions of contents to make up for your video why most you bring Islam into it. This music video is all shades of WRONG!!!

@the_scholar1: The height of this ignorance and disrespect, this is unacceptable to the Muslim community. Please take it down and have some respect for the Muslims.

@Nawas_masood: This is unacceptable. We dont joke with our religion, but you guys keep finding a way to cross the line. Dont you have any respect for your Muslims fans?

@oil_shaekh: This is disgusting 🤮! Disrespectful and disgraceful to say but the least! As a seasoned musician you should know best to guide your signee on lines not to cross. Take this down immediately and tender an unreserved apology to the Muslim Ummah.

@Dipospeak: This is an absolute disgrace, very insensitive and disrespect to my religion and worship to my creator. These celebrities lack character and sense of judgement, no wonder the so called champions of a new Nigeria who placed their hopes in these empty headed and insensitive personalities wont achieve anything but continued division and hatred amongst Nigerians.
