Popular Nigerian musician Seun Anikulapo Kuti has joined other celebrities in voicing out the opinion about yahoo boys in the country.
NAIJ.com earlier reported that on Friday morning, May 11, officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), arrested 12 suspected yahoo boys at Club 57 on Awolowo Way, Ikoyi area of Lagos. Kuti on Monday, May 14, took to one of his Facebook profiles to blast all Nigerian internet fraudsters. He disclosed that they are all fools for swindling Oyinbo men and still give them back their money through their lavish lifestyle.
He added that if only, these so-called yahoo boys can make use of the money to develop their immediate communities but they prefer to squander the money in the club buying the most expensive wine. His post reads: “Wetin yahoo boy dey take money do? No, be to buy expensive white man things? Lol. If they weren’t busy buying White man drink but building their communities maybe just maybe, I will see them but I don’t. Steal white man’s money and the only way u can express that wealth is too seek validation by consuming the most expensive white man things and u say u are a Gee? All Yahoo boys are Mugus for whitey still, them be the learner. Wait that 100k u used 3 months to set the job how long did it take Gucci to collect it back? MUGU. Until we can express our success outside of white validation thru their brands and luxury items of status and class, U STILL BE MUGU.”
Kuti did not end there but further disclosed that Nigerian politicians and yahoo boys are only interested in oppressing the poor with their wealth. His post reads: “Politician and yahoo boy only want to oppress with their wealth. #sameni Bank me and yahoo boy love luxurious life #sameni. All the elites and yahoo boys don’t give a f*ck about community. #sameni #colonizedintellectuals.” Interesting piece!
