Musician Ruggedman has addressed a particular issue that has been weighing on the minds of many Nigerians. This has to do with the increase of Yahoo boys in Nigeria. In his address, the veteran rapper directed his words to Naira Marley, another singer who has maintained over time that internet fraud is not as bad as many makes it out to be.
Naira Marley's argument is that the activities of Yahoo boys are retributive actions targeted at paying back western people for colonising Africa. Hence, the singer considers internet fraud done by young Africans as the nemesis of westerners.
People like Simi and Ali Baba have refuted this claim by saying that nothing justifies internet fraud. Ruggedman has weighed in on the issue and shaken the table which is already wobbling.
He told off Naira Marley's attempt to blame internet fraud on slavery. Ruggedman particularly told this colleague of his that he should not drag the black race into the mess the Yahoo boys has created.
According to Ruggedy Baba, as he is aptly called, the activities of these cyber criminals have cost many young Nigerians their jobs, freedom and peace of mind. Also, he advised that if they wanted to scam anyone in the first place, it should be Nigerian leaders.
From his perspective, most Nigerian leaders were looting trillions of naira and to dupe them of this money and give it back to the poor masses would mean going the way of Robin-hood, and this would be embraced more.
