However, the performance has sparked discussion regarding Safo’s stagecraft and whether music is his true calling.

Some observers noted that, Safo seemed to struggle to engage the crowd effectively. They pointed out that he appeared to rush through his lyrics without taking the time to connect with the audience.

Some fans attributed this to his relatively recent emergence into the music scene, expressing confidence that he will improve with time.
