She urged artists who don’t resonate with the genre to embrace the genres they prefer without being hypocritical. Yemi emphasized the importance of artists educating their fans about their preferred music genres.

She also pointed out that instead of addressing pressing issues in Nigeria, such as rising electricity tariffs, fuel prices, and economic challenges, people are distracted by artists’ online disputes.

Yemi’s remarks come in response to recent statements by artists like Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Fireboy DML, who have distanced themselves from the Afrobeat genre, describing it as meaningless to their musical styles.

In her recent post on X she said

“Just announce your Genre in peace. Downplaying the role Afrobeats has played in every artist’s development is hypocrisy.

Electricity Tariff& Fuel are at a 400% increase. Naira to $ is dancing alanta.

“The weather is unbearably hot. People are busy being wicked to 2each other with daily increases in prices.

Salaries have not been increased. Afrobeat artists are making the mess& you’re picking sides instead of facing your government,”
