Nigerian rapper, Naira Marley is not backing down from the ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ controversy, despite being under fire over his now controversial comments on Internet fraud.
Naira Marley had earlier taken to his Instagram page to say that anyone who knows about slavery would not consider internet scam as a crime. He wrote:
“If u know about slavery u go know say yahoo no b crime.”
His statement caused a lot of controversy among Nigerians and his fellow celebrities, with many condemning him for misleading people by saying ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ is not a crime.
Naira Marley has taken to his Instagram page once again to clear the air and drop more enlightenment on his earlier statement.
According to the rapper, the reason why he made those comments about internet fraud was because of the decay in the system and manner at which the government runs the country.
“All the money, you are spending, all the money you guys are spending, it’s the government that is making it go round. you better sit down and pray for yahoo guys, if they (government) stop yahoo, the money will just go from Obasanjo to Tinubu to Mr Japa. You think I need Yahoo, I don’t need Yahoo, I make money from music.
He said despite that the money in the country continues to circulate among some prominent politicians, the efforts of the Yahoo boys is what is actually sustaining Nigeria’s economy.
“I’m just telling, he who has ears let them hear, I’m only revealing things to you through this talk. All the money that is being circulated from the woman that sells pepper to the woman that sells palm oil and to the runs girls (prostitutes) and he spends on you for you to get a cab and buy stuff, where do you think that money is coming from?”
