Nigerian singer Idowest has come under attack for describing Davido as ‘Jesus of our time’.
Idowest, who got signed under Davido’s label ‘DMW’, said this on his Instagram page as he wished Davido happy birthday.
His statement, however, did not go down well with Nigerians on social media as they blasted him for comparing Davido to Jesus.
Here are some comments gathered by DAILY POST from Instagram:
@Mmeso_ “Jesus died for everybody, Davido cannot even die for himself. Please stop this extreme comparison.”
@richie.ar “Idowest that comparison is very wrong, just correct yourself next time don’t let pride eat you up.”
@frankinra “you are a fool for this statement. You would tell me if Jesus is a Nigerian.”
@Iamstevend “We all love Davido but calling him Jesus doesn’t make any sense at all he might only be your mentor but never will he be compared to what Jesus has done for you am not hitting at you bro just correct yourself that all bless up more life.”
@Investor_Ink “Jesus of which time? Man abeg correct your statement jor… Too much of everything is bad.”
@Iamstarboymiezzy “No matter what Bros don’t ever compare Davido with JESUS it is like you want to go to bed tonight and never wake up again tomorrow be careful on the path your trading.”
@Official_can “Please don’t compareOBO with our creator. Jesus Christ is our Savior. Our creator, our provider, he gives life and takes life. We are not even worthy to worship his foot. Obo is just a man. May God forgive you because you don’t know what you just said right now. Don’t compare your maker with a man, he is a jealous God.”
@Officialkingsleysmile “I really don’t understand what u mean by Jesus of our time..are u worshiping Davido as ur God or god? Get sense @officialidowest
@Adeola “And this is just so wrong. I hope you know Davido is nowhere compare to Jesus. You have no right what so ever to call him Jesus of your time. Did you think he can die for you and he cannot give you life either? In fact he is nothing. Go gather brain and learn how and when to use this name that is more precious than gold and silver the name of Jesus.”
