The single received numerous responses from rappers. OAP/Rapper N6 responded in a very candid track which set the pace for arguments. This escalated in December 2017, and got physical at SDC’s Palmwine Music Fest.

M.I has already moved past that, releasing a new single and visuals, titled ‘Your father’, featuring his signee, Dice Ailes.
