Former aide to ex-President Muhammadu Buhari Bashir Ahmad has reacted to the decision of famous singer and record label boss, David Adeleke, aka Davido, to delete the short clip from the controversial video of his signee, Logos Olori’s new single ‘Jaye Lo’ which he shared on Twitter.

In the clip shared by the popular singer, some persons were seen praying and dancing in front of a mosque.

The video attracted wide condemnation with many calling on the singer to remove it and tender an apology to Muslims for “disrespecting” Islam.

After initially ignoring the criticisms, Davido deleted what Ahmad described as “offensive” video from his page at the weekend.

And reacting to the development, the Kano-born politician and former House of Representatives aspirant, said it was good to learn that Davido had “deleted the offensive and hurtful video.”

“Hopefully, the entire scene will also be deleted from the actual footage before releasing it to the market, and we humbly urge that the same grave mistake should never happen again from him or anyone else,” he tweeted.

“Let’s strive to listen with empathy, understand with an open heart, and respect each other’s values and beliefs…”
