On Sunday night's episode of The Voice Australia, Denzel M Akuma became the first ever rapper to pass auditions on the reality franchise.
The 20-year-old impressed all four judges with his original track, Akuma, and bold claims of 'trying to make a revolution happen.'
But while the Melbourne local's powerhouse performance put him on the map, fans at home were underwhelmed by the show's heavy promotion of their 'world first' rapper contestant.
'Apparently this guy literally just invented hip-hop': Denzel M (pictured) became the first ever rapper to pass auditions on The Voice on Sunday night
One fan at home Tweeted sarcastically: 'Apparently Australia has just discovered rap music OMG.'
Another wrote: 'I don't know why #thevoiceau made such a big deal about a rapper on the show. Rapping is part of the music industry n a DJ won previously.'
Yet another Tweeted: 'Start a revolution? At Carols in the Domain? Or in Westfields around the country?'
