Nigerian songstress, Simi has reiterated her stance on the implication of yahoo boys who are wrecking the image of Nigeria with their fraud activities, thereby making it difficult for hardworking citizens to make a living.
In a live Instagram video, the singer criticized internet fraudsters after a fan told her to leave Yahoo boys alone because most of them are the ones buying her songs and watching her videos on Youtube.
Simi stated that what is bad is bad, also noting that some of those involved in internet fraud have gone a step further by doing rituals.
According to her, every week Nigerians are arrested in different countries across the world for fraud and this is indirectly stopping the progress of innocent Nigerians. Some Nigerians who are looking for the smallest opportunity to make ends are sometimes told by international companies that they can’t work with Nigerians because of the fraud perpetrated by yahoo boys.
Simi who stated that the world is laughing at us, then went on to tell yahoo boys that if that’s what anyone is going to use to hold her down, they should stop buying her CDs.
“They are laughing at us. They are laughing at us. I am repeating it because I have seen it. Do you know how many Nigerians going to business meetings or just to get the smallest opportunity for themselves to make it and they leave with nothing because they are Nigerian, that’s the only excuse they get. Sorry, we can not work with Nigerians.
Common guys, you don’t have to like me, you don’t have to listen to my music, you don’t have to send me, but you see, I am not the enemy. I can easily sit down and pretend that nothing is wrong and just make money, smile, cheers blah blah, but the thing is, I care too much, if I didn’t give a sh*t, I wouldn’t say anything. I’ve had friends that have done Yahoo. I’ve had friends that have thought about it.
