Buju revealed that the first time Omah Lay dissed him on social media, he saw the tweet and didn't feel the need to respond until Timaya called him and told him he had to.

Buju BNXN also slightly threw a dig, saying he doesn't know why his colleagues were calling him out, that he isn't like them, and that most of their songs are freestyle. Unlike him, he puts in more work and writes.
The For Days crooner further explained during the interview that after his contemporaries came for him, he got to understand what Burna Boy and Wizkid had warned him of that the music industry is very fake.
