Bashir Ahmad, an ex-aide to Muhammadu Buhari, has criticised Davido over a music video alleged to have disrespectfully depicted Islam.


On Friday, Logos Olori, one of Davido’s newly signed acts, unveiled his first single ‘Jaye Lo’ accompanied by a video.

Davido made a tweet to promote the song on his page just after its release.

The singer wrote, “Allow me to re-introduce @logosolori with his new single ‘Jaye Lo’.  Let us Run It Up one time! Let us take over the world! We Litty.”


Reacting to the video, Ahmad argued that the content is disrespectful and offensive to Muslims.

He stated that Muslims view Salah, their sacred prayer, as a solemn act of worship and an essential part of their faith.

He also urged the singer to respect Salah as no Muslim will find it honourable or acceptable.

“There are many reasons why every Muslim finds this content absolutely disrespectful, hurtful, and offensive, @davido,” he wrote.


“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 the second 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.

“The notion is that the Salah activity brings the individual face-to-face with God.

“That is what we believe, and that is our faith. Please respect it. No Muslim will find it honourable or acceptable.”
