"He sort of manipulates people with this whole depression phase and he's so sad. People just sort of like fall into that trap,"

Rea continues to criticise Samthing Soweto's work saying that he should not have left DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small. He says:

"Samthing Soweto is very talented. . This guy left those guys, he went and he did a project with De Mthuda, but it wasn't even close to how it sounded before, and I'm not taking anything from his vocals."

Rea concluded that entertainers get depressed because they are no longer relevant. The podcaster says that celebrities who fall off can move on and that "they did not blackmail people, they did not manipulate their fans."

"Ya'll are petty for this... Someone's been goin through the most and you claiming it to be for profit.reason why gents hurt themselves instead of talking out."

"The song is fresh, its something we havent heard in a while. Its not a mjolo, groove or Amapiano song. The message is strong & very relevant in SA. Its a beautiful song."
