For some time now, social media has been rife with discussions around ‘yahoo-yahoo’ and whether it is a Robin Hood situation or an actual crime.
Simi’s tweets sparked this long debate off; causing other celebrities as well as fellow Nigerians to react but even more heated debate kicked off when Naira Marley weighed in on the conversation, saying that if the people know what slavery is about then they won’t think that Yahoo Yahoo is a crime.
While celebrities like Tunde Ednut and Ruggedman instantly came for him for making the statement, celebs like Zlatan and Davido seemed to have no problem with what he said.
The latest celebrity to share his opinion on the matter is rave of the moment, Burna Boy.
The “Ye” crooner asked that Nigerian youth set their priorities straight. He went on to add that he would like to see Nigeria on par with other top nations of the world but it won’t happen if we don’t channel our energy into the right place.
He shared this on his Instagram, where he wrote: “Nigeria my country. Please. Let us get our priorities straight. I want my children and grandchildren to see Nigeria the way We see the Western World. We die Everyday at the hands of Police. We are robbed of our rights as human beings daily, our recycled Leaders don’t give a Fuck about us. We have real issues that we need to channel our Energy to. I’m begging you! Please! Let us save ourselves. I don’t even like the Internet because it makes me feel a lot of hopelessness for my people. We are Kings and queens, originators and creators, gods on earth! Let’s Stop bullshitting here please!!!”
