Nigerian musician Ruggedman, has warned Naira Marley to desist from misleading people by saying internet fraud popularly referred to as ‘yahoo yahoo’ is not a crime.
Recall that Naira Marley had supported yahoo boys (internet fraudsters), who he claimed were carrying out revenge for slave trade in the past.
However Ruggedman reacted to the controversial post from Naira Marley. He told Naira Marley it was still a crime and that it was disrespectful to justify it with slavery for which our ancestors died.
He reminded him about the disadvantages of yahoo echoing Simi’s call to ban yahoo boys from buying her music as they were making it harder for other Nigerians to make progress at home and abroad.
@nairamarley My brother, I love your music and all but you need to get one thing clear and do not mislead people. Especially kids on social media. You can do Yahoo all you want, but do not disrespect the part of the black race that were sold into slavery by trying to use it to justify cyber crime. The people who bought slaves died ages ago. If you want to fight that, then start a cause/movement against the British and America. Who ever owned slaves, but stealing the hard earned money of other people isnt about slavery. You say the Nigerian leaders are looting trillions outta this country, why arent you hacking their accounts and giving back to the people Robin Hood style? I swear I go hail you for that one. But bro respect the black race and dont try to use it to justify cyber crime. E no follow. If it wasnt a crime popo wont be busting boys for it.
Thousands of qualified Nigerians cant get jobs outside Nigeria because of “yahoo”. Their families are suffering.
Young Nigerians are suspect everywhere they go because of “yahoo”. If you want to do it, enjoy. Nobody is stopping you.
But remember that if you do the crime, if you are caught you do the time.
I got friends that are into it, I dont judge.
I got friends who are in jail as we speak for doing it, I dont judge.
All man dey hustle. God bless all our hustles and let’s hold our leaders accountable.
