The duo have come under heavy criticisms since the release of the song.
The song which seemingly glorifies money ritual with its lyrics that state, ”If money no enter, I go do blood money” have been wildly criticized by Nigerians on social media and while the artists have the creative freedom to express themselves and reflect their society, Nigerians are calling on the artists to be more conscious of the content of his lyrics.
Reactions towards the song has also turned many off from attending the annual Olamide Live in Concert “OLIC” as many appeal to the lagos state government to cancel the concert because of the release of the “Logo Benz” song which has been highly criticized.
