The Unexpected Backlash

What irked many Nigerian Muslims was the Jale Yo video which they claim painted Islam in bad light.

A big portion of the music video shows Logos Olori seated on top of a building propped to resemble a mosque as a number of casts, all dressed in Kanzus reenact a prayer session.

They later break into vibrant dances after observing their salat (prayers), a move that attracted heavy criticism from a section of Logos And Davido’s fans, especially Muslims.

Critics who vehemently condemned Davido and his new signee dragged them on social media holding that they demeaned Islam.

A multitude demanded Davido to pull down the video from his social media pages and YouTube and duly offer a public apology to his Muslim fans and others across the world.

Davido’s “attackers” threatened to unfollow him and delete his music from their gadgets should he fail to do the aforementioned.

While many Nigerians turned against Davido, quite a good number of others defended him holding that Logos Olori’s music video did not in any way potray Islam negatively.

A host of Davido’s defenders noted that the Jale Yo video casts were not in a real mosque and the dance that irked them was just that; a dance.
