Shatta Wale responded that some unscrupulous persons spoke ill about him to major corporate bodies he wanted to work with on the project. He also criticised the music industry for lacking suitable structures, making everything messy. He said:

"I'm not the first person to have their album leaked online. Gift Of God was a big album that I wanted to put a lot of support behind. But you go to a company, and they tell you that someone has tipped us off that Shatta doesn't respect anybody...If people can be that mean to me to tell others that I don't respect, well, maybe you have an artiste that pretends there's no problem. For me, I'm looking for money."
