UK rapper Tion Wayne, born name Dennis Junior Odunwo, was less than pleased with those criticising his latest drill song. The now-deleted clip featured the lyrics “Where you from? Shake your bum, shake your bum”, featuring scantily clad women dancing along to the tune.
Fans were quick to critique the song, pointing out that it sounded very similar to Tion’s other drill songs, as well as songs from other UK rappers.
The criticism did not stop there as some fans also shared that the unreleased track was a direct reflection of the current state of the “UK rap scene”. However, Tion took to X (Twitter) to defend himself and his new song, saying: “How many Afro swing artist are millionaires?
Or have something to show from it apart from ur bring it back tweets let me do both and enjoy my life if you lot ACTUALLY have a f*ck I would of drop Keisha Becky and never went back”
He continued to defend his success, pointing out that he has made songs of various different genres outside of drill and Afro Swing, stating that the Afro Swing era only consisted of “depression, missing person's and boxers.”
He continued: “I see twitter dissing someone's best performing song on there album the other day you lot are useless you made me think corbyn would win
When ppl come into our culture to eat you lot gas it up when it's the other way round you try block our profits LOOOOL give it a rest.”
Tion has since removed the teaser for the drill song from X but fans are now speculating if this was part of his plan from the beginning as he drops a new tweet hinting at a new Afro Swing song with his longtime friend, Darkoo and afrobeat artist Omah Lay
