3 mins read

Afrobeat sensation, Davido, has unveiled an updated rendition of his protégé Logos Olori’s single titled ‘Jaye Lo,’ accompanied by a new visual.

This release comes in response to the significant criticism the initial version received due to its controversial religious imagery.

Just weeks ago, Davido chose to remove the original music video from his official social media platforms after it ignited a wave of backlash stemming from a particular scene in the video.

The clip featured men adorned in white Jalabiya garments joyfully dancing in front of a building reminiscent of a mosque. These same individuals were depicted transitioning from a prayerful stance to dancing to the infectious rhythm of the track.

The initial visual sparked intense scrutiny, particularly within the Muslim community, with a particular focus on the scenes that were perceived as offensive and disrespectful.

The latest version of the music video for ‘Jaye Lo’ was launched, and a careful examination reveals the contentious scene has been carefully excised from the production.

Davido’s Instagram post introducing the new video reads: “The official visuals to @logosolori Jaye Lo single Out Now. 30BG let’s run it up. This video too swag abeg. Olori Gbemidebe 2.0 ACTIVATED.”

The modification in the video aims to align with the artist’s intentions to create music that is both entertaining and respectful of all audiences.
