“No Apology Is Required”- Wole Soyinka Defends Davido

Renowed writer and Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka speaks in defense of Davido, saying there isn’t a need for an apology for the controversial music video that he shared.

Recall that the Afrobeat superstar had been dragged by the Muslims over the content of the now-deleted video which had seemingly disparaged Islamic faiths.

The singer had bowed to pressure, after coming under heavy fire, and deleted the controversial music video of his signee, Logos Olori.

However, the Muslims faithful demanded an apology also for sharing the video which had caused a buzz.

While the singer had remained mute and has tendered no apology, some youths in the north had taken to the streets to demonstrate their displeasure by setting huge banners of Davido on fire.

Following this, Professor Wole Soyinka in a statement released on Tuesday said that the singer owes them no apology and had noted that the former Governor of Kaduna, Nasir El Rufai had made disparaging remarks about Christians in the past and war never called out to apologized.
