“Who Is Your Guy” crooner, Spyro’s criticism of Shalipoppi, his fellow singer, over his lyrics and song messages. Spyro, in a recent interview, accused Shallipopi of singing lyrics that glorify fraud, especially in his “Para dey body” lyrics.
Shallopopi, who recently got arrested by the EFCC on allegations of Internet Fraud has songs like “Ex Convict”, “Elon Musk” amongst others.
While declaring himself God’s ambassador, the “Who Is Your Guy” crooner said he has again promised never to release any song with ’shake your bum’ or any kind of ungodly/dirty lyrics.
The comment has so far been met with mixed reactions from fans and music observers around the country, with some backing his comment, while others argued that he his being an hypocrite.
The most vocal of which is by Music journalist, Joey Akan who said Spyro makes his money using secular artistes and operating in a secular industry but keeps debasing his colleagues while promoting Jesus.
Describing Spyro’s actions as Hypocrisy, Joey wrote, “This boy Spyro received his biggest ever song by working with worldly-adjacent artists. He chose Tiwa Savage for a collaboration over his faith-based colleagues like Chioma Jesus and Dunsin Onyekan on “who’s your Guy?” remix.“ He’s also signed to a worldly label, performs at worldly events, including an upcoming activation for Trophy, an alcoholic brand that caters to nightlife and wine drinkers.
“But he never fails to attack his colleagues ceaselessly, their professional output, and their themes of escapism and realism. Add that to a collaboration with DJ Neptune and Iyanya, two ‘worldly’ music stalwarts.“He also will not grace his gospel podcasts, but try to harness numbers from a “worldly” podcast.
“Talking about how he hates the secular industry because he is “for Jesus.” While working in it, serving it, benefiting from it, and making a living out of it.
“I call hypocrisy. Promoting Jesus, but dining in the lucrative altars of mammon.” Also reacting to Spyro’s comment on Instagram, Nasboi questioned if he uses his music to promote christ.He wrote, “Brooooooo like!!!! What’s your job? Music. Do you use your music to talk about Christ? NO! Omuh you Judging as a Christian is a turn off. Talk too much man”
