Davido’s Manager Apologizes for Controversial Music Video, Seeks Reconciliation with Muslim Community

…By for TDPel Media. Nigerian Afro pop star Davido’s logistics manager, Israel Afeare, also known as Israel DMW, issued an apology on Tuesday on behalf of Davido for the controversial music video of his signee, Logos Olori.


The Controversial Music Video

Last Friday morning, Davido posted the music video on his Twitter page as a means to promote his music artiste, Logos Olori.

However, the video stirred up significant controversy due to its contents.

In the video, individuals dressed in white clothes were seen performing a prayer similar to Muslim practices, followed by dancing and reciting Quranic verses.


Accusations of Disrespect

The video quickly garnered attention, especially among Muslims in the northern part of Nigeria, who accused the singer of disrespecting Islamic beliefs and practices.

Despite the uproar, Davido deleted the video but refrained from issuing an apology, which further fueled the discontent within the Muslim community.

Apology on Behalf of Davido

In response to the escalating situation, Davido’s logistics manager, Israel, took to his Instagram stories to extend an apology.

He explained that Davido had originally shared the video to support and promote his signee’s music, emphasizing that it was intended purely for entertainment purposes.

Israel sincerely apologized to his Muslim brothers and sisters for the video’s inappropriate presentation and clarified that no disrespect was intended.


Seeking Reconciliation

As the controversy continues to unsettle members of the Muslim community, Israel’s apology aims to address the concerns and extend an olive branch.

The statement conveys regret for any unintended offense caused and highlights Davido’s intention to uplift and promote his fellow artist.

While the situation remains delicate, the hope is that this apology will foster understanding and reconciliation among those who felt hurt or offended by the video.
