“Popular Nigerian music icon, Davido, finds himself embroiled in a significant controversy as Northern Muslim communities issue a strong warning to him over his artiste, Logosolori’s latest music video. In response to the video’s content, Nigerian Muslims are urging Davido to either take down the music video or edit the scene deemed offensive.”
The specific scene in question portrays men wearing white Jalabias, who, after observing the sacred Salat, engage in dancing, which some viewers have found objectionable. The inclusion of Quranic verses during this segment has heightened the sensitivity surrounding the matter.
The situation has garnered attention across various social media platforms, with many expressing their opinions on the matter. As of now, Davido has not issued a public response, but it remains to be seen how he will address the concerns raised by the Northern Muslim community.

Allow me to re-introduce, @logosolori with his new single “Jaye Lo”… Lets Run It Up one time! Let’s take over the world.
See some threats.
It is important to note that the cultural and religious implications in music videos should always be approached with respect and sensitivity, and artists are increasingly called upon to exercise caution in their creative expressions to avoid inadvertently causing offense.”
However, there is nothing offensive in the said video.
