Shortly after his logistics manager apologized to the Muslim community on his behalf, Davido unfollowed Israel ‘DMW’ Afeare on Instagram.
Following the contentious music video of his recently signed talent, Logos Olori, the Afrobeats musician had drawn intense criticism.
In the brief music video for the song “Jaye Lo,” three men dancing in front of a mosque were seen wearing white Jalabiya.
Although Davido removed the video on Monday, some Muslims continued to call for the musician to issue a formal apology.
Recently, some young people protested Davido on the streets of Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, by setting the singer’s enormous flag on fire.
The Department of State Services (DSS) was also urged to look into Davido by the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC).
Following the backlash, Israel apologized to the Muslim community on social media on Tuesday.
The logistics manager for the singer apologised for “presenting it incorrectly” and insisted that the video was only made for amusement.
The now-deleted Instagram post stated, “Let me specifically apologize to my Muslim brothers and sisters, on the video my oga posted, as a result of him wanting to lift up someone, which is one of his hubbies.”
“It was just a poorly presented entertainment endeavor. Make una not torment. I adore you all.
Checks revealed that Davido unfollowed his assistant on Instagram, despite the singer’s silence despite the overwhelming criticism.
Israel, on the other hand, continues to follow Davido on the platform.
