Many people were of the view that Joeboy is encouraging alcoholism but has debunked it in an interview with the online platform, Genius, saying that wasn’t his intention.

In his words, “Being tipsy inspired ‘Alcohol’. There are different challenges in life; it never ends. There is always something one needs to fix or solve. I am not encouraging alcoholism in any way but I understand that people need breaks but trying to run away from one’s problems won’t fix them at the end of the day.”
