“Don’t listen to Wole Soyinka” Reno Omokri Warns Davido Over Controversial Video

Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has warned singer, David Adeleke, a.k.a Davido not to listen to an atheist like Professor Wole Soyinka who is advising him not to apologize to Muslims who are offended by a music video of one of his signees.

Recall that on Saturday, July 22, Davido shared a snippet of a music video of his signee, Logos Olori entitled ‘Jaye Lo’ on his Twitter page.

The video which was deemed to be a desecration of the Islamic religion was widely critiqued. Some Nothern youths had taken to the streets to protest and vandalize banners bearing the singer’s face, while some like actor Ali Nuhu and Buhari’s ex-aide, Bashir Ahmad called out the singer on social media demanding an immediate apology.

However, as the call persisted, Davido bowed to pressure and deleted the music video snippet after being accused of disrespecting Islam by posting the video showing people praying and dancing in front of a mosque.

Rising to defend Davido, Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka in a statement released, accused former Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El Rufai of making derogatory comments against Christians in the past but was never asked to apologise.

He also noted that it wasn’t Davido’s music that lynched Deborah Yakubu, a second-year Christian college student who was killed by a mob of Muslim students in Sokoto last year over alleged blasphemy. He averred that he sees no basis for Davido to apologize to Muslims.
