Nigerians are still reacting on Twitter ever since Naira Marley said ‘yahoo-yahoo’ isn’t a crime

The internet has been buzzing since artiste Naira Marley, on his Instagram Live, defended internet fraud aka yahoo yahoo by saying it’s the reason why there’s circulation of money in the country. His take is that the average Nigerian won’t have access to money and that it would be only in the hands of the wealthy. Let’s, for a moment, assume the government stopping the circulation of money is true, the damage that internet fraudsters have done to our national image is on a large scale.

Marley’s comments have drawn backlash from celebrities like Simi and Ruggedman, and it further shows how internet fraud and other vices have been normalised, even pop culture. On Twitter, Nigerians are still reacting, with some even taking the side of Marley. I’m particularly stunned that Marley thinks that yahoo-yahoo is reparations for slavery. God help us.
