Nollywood Reinvented gave the film a 43% rating and praised the originality and story, however it criticized Faze's acting and concluded saying "It’s the first Izu Ojukwu movie that I do not absolutely adore. I was made to wait a really long time to finally see it but in retrospect I wish I used that time for more fruitful endeavours. It’s not absolutely terrible a movie, but it doesn’t live up to the standard of the filmmaker."
