Utawezana singer, Femi One recently took to her social media to celebrate after her song hitting 5million views on YouTube.  

“Finally!! We are at 5million views. We can now release another one Yes?” she posed.

However, a section of curious fan questioned whether Azziad Nasenya had been compensated for bringing the song popularity after her dance video went viral.

 “I hope Azziad received some sort of payment for her efforts,” wrote a user by the name Raphmckers.

In her response, Femi One clarified that just like thousands other people Azziad only took part in the challenge and was fortunate that it went viral, which to her does not warrant financial compensation.

 “The song was already trending on Tik Tok and that is why she did the challenge because she came across it,” responded Femi One.
