Self-proclaimed ‘music Taliban’, Oritse Femi has said the real internet fraudsters in Nigeria will not come out to identify themselves.
The ‘Igbeyawo’ singer made the comment in an interview with HipTV, while announcing May 26, for his forthcoming 40-community tour in Port Harcourt.
“How many artistes Yahoo Boy don buy car for?,” He asked.
“We can see politicians buying cars for artists. Let’s call a spade a spade. Yahoo boys are helping themselves, not other people. Artistes in the entertainment industry are struggling by themselves.
“Since I’ve known some of my yahoo friends, they’ve never helped me. If they can help me, I’ll agree. We see artists struggling but yahoo boys are out enjoying themselves. If they can help the industry, I’ll be happy
“Coming to the controversial issues among my colleagues, I think their opinions might not be right sometimes. But the truth is that what is bad will remain bad. The real ‘G-boys’ (internet fraudsters) would not come out to identify themselves.
“I’m not blaming these young guys for putting themselves into these things. It’s the fault of the government.”
