Posted by

Muslim teenagers who were offended recently demonstrated in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State, against popular artist Davido for posting a video clip that was disrespectful to Islam on his Twitter page.

According to 460play, when Davido shared a portion of the music video for his signee, Logos Olori’s new single “Jaye Lo,” which included people dancing and worshiping in front of a mosque, he received harsh criticism for it.

Many notable Nigerian Muslims, including actor Ali Nuhi, senator Shehu Sani, and former advisor to the late President Muhammadu Buhari, Bashir Ahmad, begged Davido to remove the video and apologize to Muslims for “disrespecting” their faith.

After 48 hours, the artist finally gave in to pressure and removed the contentious video.

Davido did not, however, apologize for his behavior.

A big banner of the musician was burned on fire in Maiduguri by several Muslim youngsters who were incensed by his conceit.

The young people were seen publicly setting Davido’s photo on fire in a video that has been making the rounds on social media.
