Responding to a facebook user who had questioned his decision to engage controversial Bev, Mpofu said:
The reality is mentioning that you like me on Facebook without investing back into the music, does not propel my career further, especially people who could actually support by attending shows and buying our music. In fact, it has stunted my growth.
However, that didn’t stop trolls from voicing their opinions as they shared their opinions which include:
While some of us have been following with admiration your music, these latest developments are a clear departure for the artiste that we known.While life is all about making choices, this road that you have decided to take will lead to nowhere fast
Some social media users, however, applauded the musician and said:
I feel my opinion and that of many others is irrelevant when it comes to growing your career and making difficult decisions. Whatever happens from here, whether good or bad you will learn from and grow.
Dereck Mpofu can tap into whatever pleasantries that tickle his soul for he is his own person and he is allowed to live his life as he pleases, just like we all are.
Knowing him or following his career journey does not buy you any rights to his decision making.
