About a week ago, Naira Marley struck another chord on his string of controversy about internet fraudsters. The music star in his statement allegedly supported cybercrime as against slavery.
This is coming after Simi shared a live video on her Instagram page a few weeks ago, criticizing these fraudsters after a fan brought to her attention that Yahoo guys are the ones buying most of her CDs and watching her Youtube videos.
In his statement he wrote;
However, some people have expressed complete disapproval including celebs over Nairamarley’s statement. Ruggedman in his reaction to Nairamarley’s statement has called him out not to mislead people especially the young ones into doing the wrong thing to make money. In a bid to back up his points, the veteran rapper advise Marley to not disrespect the part of the black race that were sold into slavery by trying to use it to justify cybercrime.
@nairamarley My brother, I love your music and all but you need to get one thing clear and do not mislead people. Especially kids on social media. You can do Yahoo all you want, but do not disrespect the part of the black race that were sold into slavery by trying to use it to justify cyber crime. The people who bought slaves died ages ago. If you want to fight that, then start a cause/movement against the British and America. Who ever owned slaves, but stealing the hard earned money of other people isnt about slavery.
You say the Nigerian leaders are looting trillions outta this country, why arent you hacking their accounts and giving back to the people Robin Hood style? I swear I go hail you for that one. But bro respect the black race and dont try to use it to justify cyber crime. E no follow. If it wasnt a crime popo wont be busting boys for it.
Thousands of qualified Nigerians cant get jobs outside Nigeria because of “yahoo”. Their families are suffering.
Young Nigerians are suspect everywhere they go because of “yahoo”. If you want to do it, enjoy. Nobody is stopping you.
But remember that if you do the crime, if you are caught you do the time.
I got friends that are into it, I dont judge.
I got friends who are in jail as we speak for doing it, I dont judge.
All man dey hustle. God bless all our hustles and let’s hold our leaders accountable.
Naira Marley went on to point out that after his controversial statement, he got snubbed by Simi after they bumped into each other at an event.
