Nigerian actor, Ali Nuhu has demanded that Afrobeat singer, Davido should tender an apology to Muslims over a recent controversial video.
Recall that on Saturday, Davido 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.
