Some aggrieved Muslim youths recently took to the streets of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, to demonstrate their displeasure with famous singer, Davido who posted a video clip offensive to Islam on his Twitter page.

DAILY POST recalls that Davido came under heavy criticisms after sharing a clip of the music video of his signee, Logos Olori’s new single ‘Jaye Lo’ which captured people praying and dancing in front of a mosque.

Many prominent Nigerian Muslims including former aide to ex-president Muhammadu Buhari, Bashir Ahmad, Senator Shehu Sani, actor, Ali Nuhi, asked Davido to take down the video and apologise to Muslims for “disrespecting” their religion.

The singer eventually bowed to pressure after 48 hours and deleted the controversial video.

However, Davido did not apologise for his action.

Angered by his arrogance, some Muslim youths in Maiduguri took to the street setting a large banner of the singer on fire.

In a video making the rounds on social media, the youths were captured publicly setting Davido’s picture ablaze.
