The visuals of Davido Music Worldwide, DMW, act Logos Olori’s new single: “Jaye Lo,” have been greeted with huge criticisms, especially by Muslims who considered the content “offensive and disrespectful” to their religion.
The new DMW 2.0 artist released his debut single under the label on July 21, 2023, with Davido uploading it on Twitter.
Following the release, DMW boss, Davido, took to Twitter to share a short clip of the music video, which captured people praying and dancing in front of a mosque as he urged fans to stream the song.
“Allow me to re-introduce, @logosolori with his new single ‘Jaye Lo’… Lets Run It Up one time! Let’s take over the world !!! We Litty,” he tweeted.
However, his tweet didn’t sit well with the Muslim faithful who immediately asked him to take down the video and tender an apology as the content of the video was offensive to the Islamic religion.

Here are some of the reactions
A former presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad, tweeted: “There are many reasons why every Muslim finds this content absolutely disrespectful, hurtful and offensive @davido.
“I assume you all know that we Muslims don’t mix our religion with jokes in any way, especially Salah (prayer), which is sacred and the second of the five pillars of Islam.
In Salah, Muslims remember our Lord, Allah, express our love and respect for Him and invoke and strive to express our gratitude towards Him.
“The notion is that the Salah activity brings the individual face-to-face with God.
“That is what we believe, and that is our faith.
“Please respect it.
“No Muslim will find it as an honor or acceptable.”
