A viral video on social media shows a Nigerian man claiming that Christians have demanded artist Asake to remove his “Bandana” music video from the internet within 24 hours.
This reaction comes in the aftermath of the backlash faced by Davido for his signee, Logos Olori’s controversial music video.
In the “Jaye Lo” music video by Logos Olori, some Muslims found the combination of singing and prayer gestures with people performing their Solah and dancing below as insulting.
The Nigerian man in the new video, who identifies as a Christian, agrees that disrespecting other people’s religions is unacceptable and commends Davido for taking down the video.
The man points out that Asake, whose real name is Ahmed Ololade, also appears to disregard the Christian religion in his “Bandana” music video featuring Fireboy DML.
In this video, Asake is seen wearing a Jesus pendant on his neck and singing in a church setting. Despite the criticism, the “Bandana” music video has accumulated 90 million views in 11 months.
Reactions to the video varied, with some expressing their pride in their religion, while others called for peaceful coexistence and understanding.
However, one commenter seemed to issue a threat towards Asake, giving him 24 hours to address the issue or face consequences.
It’s important to note that religious tensions can arise from such sensitive matters, and promoting understanding and respect between different religious groups is essential for peaceful coexistence.
