The page also requested that the verse be removed before the was officially released.

“Some concerned Muslims have come together to condemn the use of the Qur’an in a music video snippet and appeal to the producer of the to remove the Qur’an recitation before the video is officially released.”

Divergent viewpoints could be found in the comments section, with some Muslims supporting the request while others saw nothing wrong with Seyi Vibez’s actions.

@queenbash_bbg opined that One described his as faultless since he was a Muslim.

“Walai we are doing too much to irrelevant things 1. What is the content of the 2. Is the singer a Muslim? 3. Is there any nudity in the song . Those are questions to be asked before we start our fanatism. What if the music will help propagate Islam . What is our problem as Muslims?”

Another user @officialyakzy claimed that Seyi Vibez’ sampling of the Quranic recitation was a way to propagate Islam.

“He’ actually and stylishly preaching Quran to people, it doesn’t matter y’all stop this after all that’ Arabic language just like English.”

@ayam_akewiagbaye was of the opinion that since there was no instrumental accompanying the recitation then Seyi Vibez has not erred.

The track does not yet have a release date, and Seyi Vibez’ decision on whether to drop the Islamic aspect is still up in the air.

This, however, would be quite unlikely given that he has previously used such techniques in his songs. His album “Billion Dollar Baby” deluxe includes the song “Kun Faya Kun,” which has an Islamic influence.
