Naira Marley during a recent Instagram live session urged Nigerians to pray for internet fraudsters (Yahoo boys) saying they are the reason money circulates to the common man.
He said and we quote: “All you guys, all the money in your pockets, all the money you spend, you think it’s the government that is making the money go round?”
The video has since stirred reactions from Nigerians who described Marley as a disgrace and bad example to young Nigerians. Celebrities like RuggedMan were against his claims.
However, a few Nigerians have supported Marley, saying that Yahoo boys are the reason some Nigerians can eat and survive.
The singer is popular for his 2017 hit song titled ’It’s a goal.’
