GSM Market: Kano Market Traders Banned from Listening to Davido’s Songs

The leader of Farm Centre GSM Market in Kano State, Hassan Abubakar Bawasa, has banned traders from pasting pictures and playing or listening to the songs of ace singer, David Adeleke a.k.a .

According to SaharaReporters, the announcer of the ban said the market leader warned that any defaulter would be sanctioned decisively.

Davido sparked outrage on Saturday after uploading a short clip for his signee, Logos Olori's new single ‘Jaye Lo' which had been welcomed with huge criticisms, especially by Muslims who considered the content “offensive and disrespectful” to their religion.

Bawasa who said that the ban is to be adhered to by Muslim faithfuls and non-Muslims that operate in the market, noted that it was as a result of Davido's “blasphemous act against the religion of Allah.”

“Anybody who knows someone who pasted Davido's picture in his shop, he should quickly remove and burn it because of his blasphemous act against the religion of Allah.

“Playing Davido's music, video or sharing it is prohibited in Kano phone centres. Anybody found listening to his song will be sanctioned decisively. I convey you this message from Hassan Bawasa,” the announcer with a megaphone said in Hausa.

This comes after Omo Baba Olowo deleted the controversial music video which he posted on Twitter. The footage captured a group of men, all in white ‘jalamiya', praying, then, in a twist, they all transitioned into dancing in front of a mosque.
