In a message shared on his Instagram story, Isreal clarified that the video in question was intended solely for entertainment purposes but was mistakenly portrayed differently.

With genuine affection for the Muslim community, Isreal asked them not to hold any anger.
“Let me specially apologize to my Muslim brothers and sisters, on the video my Oga posted, as a result of him wanting to lift somebody, which is one of his hubbies. It was purely an entertainment effort wrongly presented. Make una no vex. Love you all”.Advertisement
Davido faces backlash over controversial music video
Over the weekend Davido, via his social media pages, had 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.
In what seemed like a response to the backlash, Davido took to his Twitter page to further promote the video.
Davido stated in one of his tweets that he didn’t want to fight.
“I wan make u show me, make we no dey fight”.
In another tweet, referring to his song ‘Unavailable’, Davido stated that he was unavailable.
“Una know say ‘Feel’ never start Abi? IN FACT ‘Unavailable’ never start!
No choice logos!! Them go feel am!! MEN MOUNT”
Davido finally bows to pressure, takes down controversial music video
However, following the massive backlash, Davido succumbed to pressure and took down the controversial video.
A check on his Twitter page showed that the video had been deleted.
Davido also left a message on the importance of humility, which he stated opens doors.
“Humility opens doors”, he tweeted.
