@waspapping_ wrote: “Davido @davido of all people should know that Muslims don’t joke around with their religion. To promote that video of his with Muslims praying is not only insensitive, it’s insulting. He should as a matter of urgency delete that video and tender an unreserved apology”

@Daniel Regha wrote: “Davido should delete that Jaye Lo video & apologize to Muslims as an act of respect; It’s common knowledge that the mosque is a sacred place, plus Muslims don’t condone any act/behavior that goes against their faith. Creativity is fine, but respect people’s religion & cultures.”
