In his review, Tony Asankomah described the movie as a challenging watch despite Lil Win's frantic efforts to after the narrative about the current state of Ghana’s struggling film industry.

Tony acknowledged that the movie's storyline showed some promise but was riddled with unnecessary distractions, glaring production errors and missteps despite its huge budget.

He also criticised the performance of actors like Ramsey Nouah, saying he was an awkward fit within the film’s context.
