Christians have knocked Afrobeat sensation, Ahmed Ololade, a.k.a Asake, over his latest music video titled, “Only Me”, for allegedly disrespecting ‘Christianity’ in the video shot by TG Omori.

The YBNL signee in a scene in the music video, which garnered over 150,000 views in less than five hours after it was released on Thursday, showed Asake clad in priestly regalia.

Solomon Buchi, a social commentator, wrote on his X handle: “Asake keeps disrespecting the Christian faith in his music videos. Dramatizing the Eucharist, robed up in priestly regalia for a music video that has no connection with Christianity, is disrespectful.

“In his Bandana video, he depicts black goats troping into the church with cloven tongues of fire above weird men. Asake, I think, is a Muslim. Why doesn’t he go above and beyond to embarrass his Muslim faith in the same way?

“Why do Christians even listen to these musicians who bluntly disrespect Christianity?”.

Another X user, @AniBae94, wrote: “After using more than 50 goats to shoot a worldly music video in church, Asake is at it again, dressed as a priest and holding the communion in an ungodly manner, disrespecting Christianity.
I’m so vexed right now.”

Persecondnews recalls that a singer, Olamilekan Taiwo, a.k.a Logos Olori, who is signed to pop star David Adeleke’s record label, Davido Music Worldwide, has been lambasted by several Muslims over the teaser of his music video titled Jaye Lo, which was released on July 21, 2023.

The 45-second video featured some men wearing white jalabia and caps and dancing in front of a mosque. Olori also sat on a speaker mounted on the roof of the building.

This and the fact that the singer mentioned the word, Alhamdulillah (praise be to God), did not go down well with some of their fans, especially Muslims, who condemned it.
