@Ree Maela said:

"I don't agree with you Phori, every producer they copy, stop complaining about something like that aww even yourself you copy from others if you don't copy what kind of music did you create you are just a good producer and singer you didn't produce styles.”

@Mutshidzi Kattama sid:

“Why are you telling us Phori. I'm also disappointed by you. but thanks for the brief... I was blank.”

@Sinethemba Ndlovu said:

“But l think as a well-known artist, Maphorisa you have integrity and dignity to maintain to the people, you shouldn't be saying such words rather inbox him or just leave him like that because you don't lose anything, after all, we all know you are the best sometimes silence is better than proving a point. Just remember that the whole world sees what you post so be careful don't lose respect from people bcoz of one person.”
