"Bobo" was met with positive reviews among music critics and massive airplay. With a view of promoting the song, a dance style called "Shakiti Bobo" was named after the song. Tola Bolaji of Nigerian Entertainment Today described the song as a combination of "rap and poetry" and further went on to state that: "This song obviously goes beyond the leg jumping to meet the hand rhythmic dance steps. It has a message. Next time take more time in listening to the message of Nigerian songs. You might just be lucky to meet one, just like a song writer in Naija said, one in a million". Henry Igwe of 360Nobs stated on the song: "The song is mellow, catchy, and carries tingly features that can freeze the industry heartbeat today, and get the people listening. The girls are spanking hot and popping".
