"Scapegoat" was met with positive reviews from music critics. Jibola L of BellaNaija said, "It’s definitely a fun listen, like most music churned from the Mo’hits factory. We’re totally loving the Highlife feeling on the song. Of course, we see him bringing back his harmonica days on this one." Demola OG of NotJustOk said the song "may possibly cut cross the older and younger generation because it is D'banj and it appears that it has some element of a highlife." Oye Akideinde of 360 Nobs added, "Loving the cut. D Banj professes his love to a chick with a lovely 'backside."
