Spyro, the Nigerian singer, has criticised Shallipopi, his colleague, over the lyrics of ‘Elon Musk’, his hit song.


‘Elon Musk’ was released in March 2023.

In a recent chat on the Honest Bunch Podcast, Spyro said the things people say can have a powerful influence on their thoughts and actions.

Referring to “para dey body”, a line from Shallipopi’s song, Spyro said internalising such phrases could inadvertently lead to fraudulent behaviour.


“You become what you see and say, if you are saying ‘para dey body’ before you know, that is where fraud starts from,” he said in a mixture of English and pidgin.

“E go get the way we go take hear something wey be say you go wake up sef, na that thing go come out from your head because you have ve internalised it. You have digested it. It has gone into your system.

“Once you take it in, e go just put one song for your mind. A lot of attack wey we think say this generation we think devil will come with horn, devil no dey come with horn o, na suggestions, he will just suggest something.”


Born Oludipe David, Spyro gained fame after releasing the hit song ‘Who Is Your Guy’ in November 2022.

On March 3, the singer combined with Tiwa Savage for the remix of the song.

Spyro vowed that he would never create “ungodly music” in June.
