“Ayra Starr’s new song “Sability” is quite terrib!e. The beats are decent, but the sampling of Awilo’s “Coupe bibamba” !sn’t doin her s!mplistic lyrics any favors; Great singing voice, po!ntless music. As an upcomer she needs to up her game by seriously pushing her pen. No shades.”

@liadakys: “I’m not a fan of Ayra or her music, but you’re just spouting with little info on what you’re spouting about. If you’re going to criticise Ayra for using a melody out of Coupe Bibamba, then you might as well criticise Awilo because he took that tone from somewhere else!!!”
@voelfida3: “I’ve gotta agree Omo I like the song but I honestly think it’s missing something or something is connecting…… She’s good but I feel she could be better but well that’s growth for u”
@walshakgentle: “You’re always condemning and analyzing people’s effort but the last skit you dropped, you’re yet to drop another one after many years. If it’s that easy to be consistent and creative, why can’t you be consistent and create another skit? Mumu man”
@NkyEzenwa: “Gosh Daniel sometimes let things be … Go eat and do some out door work…”
@shadrachovie: “Abeg write ✍️ one song make we see belike u ssbi this pen game very well.. make others still learn from you since you be prof. for the business..”
@Jerry1Shima: “When Naija think they don blow, they began to be singing wacky songs that are pointless. Imagine singing Awilos sample that has fade right back when she was not Born. What a wack song. No offense 🙏”
