Nigerian pop star, Oritsefemi, has said Internet fraudsters popularly known as ‘Yahoo Yahoo Boys’ in the country, are not being useful to the entertainment industry.
The ‘Double Wahala’ crooner made the comment in an interview with HipTV.
“How many artistes Yahoo Boy don buy car for?
“We can see politicians buying cars for artistes. Let’s call spade a spade. Yahoo boys are helping themselves, not other people. Artistes in the entertainment industry are struggling by themselves,” Oritsefemi said.
He went on to describe some of his friends who are into Internet fraud as stingy.
“Since I’ve known some of my yahoo friends, they’ve never helped me. If they can help me, I’ll agree. We see artistes struggling but yahoo boys are out enjoying themselves. If they can help the industry, I’ll be happy,” he said.
This comes just days after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) filed 11 charges bordering on fraud against up and coming musician, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley over alleged fraud.
