Wilfred Okiche for 360nobs praised the acting of the main cast, with particular acclaim for Richard Mofe Damijo, describing the film as genuinely funny, but downplayed the roles the leading women were made to play in the film as cliche. It noted that "Tobere" has gotten so engrossed to his role in Tinsel (TV series), that it was difficult for him to play a character opposite of what "Ade Williams" represented in the series. It concluded its review by stating that the last 10 minutes of the film were completely unnecessary and a total detach from the remaining parts off the film. Joy Dibia for Xplorenollywood also criticized the unneeded evangelical nature of the latter parts of the film, although she rated it an 8 out of 10 for its genuinely comedic theme and powerful acting. True Nollywood Stories titled its review "Opa Williams returns to filmmaking with an eyesore".
