According to the Imam, the song should not be circulated on the airwaves, as it is demonic.

In a report by MyJoyOnline.com, the Imam, who was furious at how well the song was patronised, stated: “It is demonic. If it is not demonic, we have been listening to a lot of music but people will not jump when a motorcycle is going…or by force climb a tree. This is very dangerous.
