“Your opinion right now, Mr. Blakk, does not matter. The thing is, the boy has done something and it’s historic, be grateful, and let’s honor our people. Let’s be happy for our people, you saying this, what does it do to it? Are they gonna go back to production and make the music what you want? …what level has he gotten to criticize the song”.Efya
