Here are a few reactions on Twitter
Laycon's new album, "Shall we begin" makes me happy.
The focus and presence of mind for him to stretch himself through the celebrity, to anchor it all on sustainable art, impresses me.
The right way to wield fame is to use it as fuel for productivity.

Laycon is very good. His new album #ShallWeBegin has got such a ‘feel good’ vibe and showed his dynamism. Man is never scared of trying his hands on new sounds. Lovely to see his growth. 👏🏼 #SWBtheAlbum 🔥
