Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has called on Nigerian singer, Davido not to apologise to anybody over the controversial video he posted on his social media pages over the weekend which drew his condemnation from Muslims in the country. 


Recall that Davido had come under heavy criticism after he shared a clip of the music video of his signee, Logos Olori’s new single ‘Jaye Lo’ which captured people praying and dancing in front of a mosque on social media platforms.


The singer eventually bowed to pressure on Monday morning and deleted the video but refused to apologise.


Despite taking down the video, some Muslims are still demanding for a public apology from Davido.


A group of Muslim youths recently took to the streets of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital to demonstrate their displeasure with Davido; setting a large banner of the singer on fire.


However, in a statement released on Tuesday, Soyinka maintained that Davido doesn’t owe Muslims an apology.


The Nobel laureate said former Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El Rufai had made derogatory comments against Christians in the past but was never asked to apologise.
