Top Yahoo boys quotes

Yahoo boys have their sayings that are characteristic of their circle. These sayings are one of the means that help to detect them among your relations. Give attention to your friends in case you hear them say something like:

  • Work hard for the money. If it requires no sleeping at night, stay awake all night long.
  • Even if you complete school and find a job, you will never get enough of the country we all live in. I could make much more from one transfer.
  • If you get a job, what do you have? You are promoted, and you keep on suffering until the next one. It's not the life I want to have, so I choose a better way.
  • Sometimes you just can't make all of it on your own, and you need to involve some jazz (the slang word for "voodoo practices"). Some guys just have special bracelets, while others bring animals or sleep in the baba's house.
  • Those who do the g-plus (the slang word for the mixture of fraud and voodoo practices) know they are earning bloody money.
  • Everybody who does it knows that it's a crime, guy. What then? Everyone in this country is a criminal under disguise.
  • If you have a legal job, you come home from it and need to do even more to provide for your living. The only thing that cheers you up is that your hands are clean.
  • Do you know many Yahoo boys who have N38 million?
  • I love it because I am my only boss. I don't report to anybody. I can work when I want and sleep when I want.
  • Everyone around you is maga (a humiliating term used to determine the foreigners deceived by the Yahoo boys). Don't worry; they still exist. Even you are a maga. If I tell you that I have some item sold at a lower price, for only N500,000, you will say, oh my gosh, I want it! I sell you something worth N100,000, and here you are! We don't rob old white guys only.
  • Yahoo boys are scamming everything they can see around them. These are companies, banks, and every person who's ready to part with money.
  • People usually think that all Yahoo boys are millionaires. It's not true. Some of them just can't make ends meet.
  • Some of the boys are messing with jazz. They have a special amulet given to them by the baba, and they have it in their gang to boost their success. If you want to join them, you must swear a special loyalty oath.
  • This country where we live is full of hypocrisy. People curse Yahoo boys when they talk about them, but when Yahoo boys give them money, these fake ones don't refuse to take it.
  • If not for the Yahoo boys, a good half of cinemas, cafes, and clubs would go broke and close down. We spend a great deal of money there. We help people. Yes, we do a crime. I know it, but nobody is a saint.
  • All this hustle around the Yahoo boys is sometimes quite hard. While working, I'm never resting; I'm always alert. When police officers see you looking better than other people in the street, they consider you a Yahoo boy at once.
  • When I have a family, I want to turn legit. I want to invest my money and live honestly. This is not a kind of life for a family.
