Though some people took offense with the statement ,some feel Sam is entitled to his opinion. See below;

Yes,everyone is entitled to his/her opinion,there are some singers i don't like their songs (Sam Smith is one of them) - see what i did here? "Song" not the artist "Smith" but he out-rightly said he doesn't like MJ but the song is good,like seriously?! I have a problem with it -for him to say it and share the dumb post on his social page is just unacceptable especially since he is also an artist.  Very insensitive,given that the icon is late as WTH!

The singer have since taken down the post but the damage has been done.

Falz plans to take Legal action with NBC for banning his song 'This is Nigeria'

It is a very simple and clean song. The only thing is that I was very blunt about the way I talk about things. I do not know maybe some messages in the song hit them and that is the real reason they banned the song. The line was, ‘This is Nigeria, look how we living now. Everybody be criminal.’ If they ban this song, then I do not understand them because that song is definitely not a vulgar song.”

“I do not know if the fact that some group wanted me to retract the song is linked with this new development but I know that there were a lot of messages in th…
