“Who’s your guy crooner”, Oludipe Oluwasanmi David popularly known as Spyro has been cautioned by skit maker, Nasboi and music journalist, Joey Akan for criticizing the song lyrics of singer, Shallipopi and other musicians who do secular music.
Spyro, while speaking in a recent podcast, The Honest Bunch hosted by Nedu criticized Shallipopi for the lyrics to his songs, especially the latest song, “Para Dey Body”
While stressing that Shallipopi puts out lyrics that make people internalize fraud, Spyro noted the importance of putting out songs with lyrics that are impactful must not be neglected.
Calling out Spyro over his comment, Joey via his X handle, pointed out that Spyro makes his money using secular artists 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.
“Chioma Jesus and Dunsin Onyekan lost out on “who’s your guy,” remix.
“He’s also signed to a worldly label, and performs at worldly events, including an upcoming activation for Trophy, an alcoholic brand that caters to nightlife and winebibers.
“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 Chris is a turn off. Talk too much man”
