Controversial “Jaye Lo” Music Video Sees Angry Group Burn Davido’s Poster In Public As Criticisms Continue

In matters that seem spiralling out of control on the Davido issue, recently, some disgruntled youths burned a banner of the Nigerian musician Davido as a form of protest. The artist’s failure to retract a contentious video he had posted on Twitter led to the incident. In the viral video on Tuesday, the enraged crowd could be seen setting Davido’s banner on fire as a commentator vehemently scolded him for allegedly mocking Islam.

The person said in Hausa, “Davido, may God curse your blessings,” to express their strong disapproval. Davido, we have the utmost respect for prayer. May Allah mock you for the way you mocked prayer.”

A social media influencer, $ULTAN (@Sarki sultan), suggested in a post on Tuesday that Davido’s apology would be a significant step in resolving the current controversy in response to the growing outcry. “Davido needs to apologize; let’s wrap this up. It costs nothing to say “I’m sorry,” according to the tweet.

On the internet, Davido’s tweet received a lot of feedback. Netizens responded strongly to the clip and shared their thoughts in response. Bashir Ahmad, a former media aide to Muhammadu Buhari, and the actor Ali Nuhu from Kannywood were two notable figures who criticized the Afrobeats singer.

Bashir Ahmad called Davido out for disrespecting Islam in a tweet. His words,

“I assume you all know that we Muslims don’t mix our religion with jokes in any way, especially Salah (prayer), which is sacred and one 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.”

Davido eventually removed the “Jaye Lo” video by his signee, Logos Olori, under pressure after receiving praise from Bashir Ahmad, Ali Nuhu, and others. Despite the video’s removal, angry Muslim followers have demanded a complete ban on Davido’s music in all 19 of the nation’s northern states.

The State Security Service (SSS) was urged by Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) to question the singer about the video, which they claimed had the potential to “ignite anarchy in Nigeria.” Ishaq Akintola, the MURIC spokesperson, emphasized the seriousness of the situation and the need for accountability in a statement issued on Monday in Abuja.
