Joey questioned why he has not featured other Christian artists on his songs instead of working with secular artists like Tiwa Savage, Iyanya, and others.

"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, performs at worldly events, including an upcoming activation for Trophy, an alcoholic brand that caters to nightlife and winebibers.

"But he never fails to ceaselessly attack his colleagues, their professional output,  and their themes of escapism and realism. Add that to a collaboration with DJ Neptune and Iyanya, two 'worldly' music stalwarts. I call hypocrisy. Promoting Jesus, but dining in the lucrative altars of mammon," he wrote in parts.

Joey Akan spills damaging information about Carter Efe

Meanwhile, Nigerian music journalist and podcaster Joey Akan sparked some heated reactions online with his revelation.

The Afrobeats Intelligence host disclosed that the popular skit maker Carter Efe used streaming farms to push his viral hit track Machala to the number one spot on streaming platforms.

The podcaster, however, mentioned that the viral feud between Carter Efe and the young artist he featured on the song, Berri Tiga, was a sham to deceive the public into not noticing that he had been caught off guard by the streaming platforms.
