Spesh expressed his disgust by accusing the Grammy organisers of attempting to control African music. He said Africans will not allow them to marginalise Afrobeats or any other African genre.

"We won't give you the power to dvmb Afrobeats down, Afrofusion, or anything African!
"That's (white) America's problem! When things start to take over and get massive, they always want a part, then try to have a say, then try to control."

He further made fun of the lyrics of Tyla's viral hit song, Water.

"Gbedu about squ*rting don win," the hype man captioned.
