Isreal ‘DMW’ Afeare, Davido’s logistics manager, has apologised to the Muslim community over the controversial music video posted by the singer.


Davido provoked widespread criticism following the controversial music video of his newly signed artiste Logos Olori.

In the short clip for the song titled ‘Jaye Lo’, some men dressed in white Jalabiya could be seen dancing in front of a mosque.

Although Davido took down the video on Monday, some Muslims still demanded a public apology from the singer.


Some youths recently took to the streets of Maiduguri, Borno state capital, to register their displeasure with Davido and set a large banner of the singer on fire.

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) also called on the Department of State Services (DSS) to probe Davido.

In the wake of the backlash, Isreal took to social media to apologise to the Muslim community.


The singer’s logistic manager said the video was purely for entertainment purposes, adding that they are “sorry for presenting it wrongly”.

“Let me specially apologise to my Muslim brothers and sisters, on the video my oga posted, as a result of him wanting to lift up somebody, which is one of his hubbies,” the now-deleted Instagram post reads.

“It was purely an entertainment effort wrongly presented. Make una no vex. Love you all.”


Davido has remained silent — despite the widespread backlash.
