Social media users echoed the 2023 host and recipient of the Afrimma Award for Best Southern Female Artist sentiments about clubs' gatekeeping music:

"She ain't cap tho. hip-hop sets are so dry and predictable it's as if they don't know any music that came out after 2017. I'm referring to established djs that is."

"I always find older DJs as gatekeepers hey lol but that's my opinion."

@MafikaMokhele said:

"I love how she name-dropped them."

@Hloniscott noticed:

"She's right, there's a lot great hip-hop jams that drop every week, your Nasty C, Tshego even AKA just to name a few but nah they still holding on."

@Oh_itz_goOmz explained:

"Problem is that most of these Dj’s don’t even know how to properly play a hip-hop set, so I understand why they would play DJ Khalid and them."

@WakaOwamiwas shocked:

"All I do is win? 2023?? Yoh."
