A notable critique came from an X user named Josh, who analysed Abel's content and suggested room for improvement.

"Yesterday I asked you guys to tell me what exactly Abel Mutua does to give my opinion on whether he's funny and good at what he does or not. You guys sent me suggestions of some of the best stories he has ever told and went and I watched one of them. But guys is that what you call funny?

"We have storytellers, funny people and if they would be telling stories like Abel, they would be way better. Abel is good. Am not saying he's bad he's just the pioneer and that's why people probably think he's good. but he's doing something great. If someone else joins in and does what he does better then they can reap big from it. He's doing what he can do best that's okay but am saying there's room for better," Josh said.

This critique has sparked a debate among fans, with opinions divided on the validity of Josh's assessment.
