Singer Jaywon, has said that it is almost impossible to figure out who is a fraudster these days since fraud has become so rampant.
Jaywon, in a recent chat with Punch commented on the issue of cyber crime among youths today and the fact that it is impossible to know who is a fraudster today, since musicians are sometimes sponsored by unknown individuals with untraceable sources of income. The artiste also added that, despite following a clear path himself, he still can’t proudly say he has never received money from them.
“These days, one doesn’t even know who is a yahoo boy and who is not. Because of that, I cannot really say that I have never collected money from a yahoo boy or not. There are people one feels are involved in legitimate business without knowing that they are fraudsters behind closed doors. However, it happens all over the world, and not just in Nigeria. You have people bringing in funds but you don’t really know where they make their money from. And it’s not everybody you can ask for the source of their income,” Jaywon shared.
The artiste went further to state that it is impossible to separate clean money from fraud money in the entertainment industry, and as far as he’s concerned, anything that would make the industry grow is welcome. He also stated that, what is bad is bad and if anybody is caught breaking the law, such individuals should face the consequences of their actions.
“No yahoo boy has ever sponsored me. I only hear that yahoo boys sponsor certain artistes and own night clubs and record labels. Perhaps, I have never been lucky in that regard. I have been the one taking care of myself and sponsoring everything I do,” Jaywon added.
