It may have been a messy day for some Muslim faithfuls who trooped out to support music sensation, Davido at his O.B.O album launch last Sunday. Going by some eyewitnesses accounts, the Expo Centre Hall of Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos was filled up. This feat has only been achieved by comedian, Ayo Makun known as AY.
Alhaji Aliko Dangote was said to have been present at the event. Also were Davido’s uncle, Isiaka Adeleke, who was a former Osun state governor; first class Obas; children who came with their parents; celebrities and many others.
Though, the event fell under the holy month of Ramadan when Muslim fast to God for purity and other purposes, but Davido still got the support from his Muslim, Christian and other religious believers’ lovers.
But alas! what did the his Muslim fans and supporters get in return from Davido? A sacrilege and a gift that had the capability of causing a stain to their prayers in the holy month and render their fast for that day unacceptable before Allah, as God is referred to in Islam.
This was because Davido reportedly stormed the stage with some strippers knowing that there were children and Muslims including Aliko Dangote, who were observing Ramadan, present at his album launch.
As if that was not enough, the strippers were said to have done some erotic dance moves before the watching audience, including children. Some of the eyewitnesses, who spoke to Nigeriafilms.com disclosed that some parents had to take their children out from seeing the X-rated erotic dance moves by the strippers.
Others fumed that it was wrong for a teenager like Davido to come on stage with strippers while Muslims were still observing Ramadan. One of the eyewitnesses asked the rationale behind the choice of Davido as MTN Pulse brand ambassador.
Though this is not the only flop at the much publicised O.B.O concert, but that is another matter still left untouched.
