Expressing the view that everyone is entitled to their opinion, Illbliss acknowledged that if some artists believe the way wasn't paved for them, it's their personal stance. Despite older musicians not providing record deals to younger artists, he argued that every emerging artist draws inspiration from their predecessors.

Illbliss, however, highlighted ageism as a growing issue in Nigeria and issued a challenge to the OGs to actively participate in making music. He expressed dissatisfaction with the energy from older artists, emphasizing the hard work put in by the younger generation.

In response to Illbliss's statement, Nigerian singer Ric Hassani praised him for his intelligence and expressed respect, emphasizing the importance of Illbliss's perspective on the matter.
