Attendees and online viewers raised accusations of devil worship against the artist, linking him to Satanism and the Illuminati due to the mysterious elements incorporated into his performance.

He emphasized the cultural significance of the mask and its representation of Edo state, stating that by incorporating these elements into his performance, he aimed to redefine and globally showcase the rich heritage of his home.
