The issue of Yahoo boy seems to be a never-ending conversation in the Nigerian music scene and for the second time, Nigerian saxophone player, Seun Kuti is giving his opinion on the issue, stating that internet fraudsters known as Yahoo Boys are results of political and business elites in Nigeria.

On Instagram, the son of legendary Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Seun Kuti, stated that the biggest criminals in the Nigerian system are the Nigerian politicians who rob us daily and they're also the ones creating the criminality, hence we should go after them instead of going after only the Yahoo boys.

He said;

The yahoo boy is the legitimate child of the political and business elite. Our ability as Nigerians to pick and choose wat criminals to hate and what criminals to jump and dance for is the reason we can’t develop especially when the criminals we shuck and jive for are the real DEVILS!! STIGMATIZE ALL NIGERIAN CRIMINALS NOT JUST THE YAHOO BOY!! #gethesax.

Now you will make these oppressors use the people as an excuse to oppress the people. When police starts harassing all young people , na una go shout END SARS!!! I won’t let these people create an atmosphere where there harassment of young people will become acceptable!! Let’s go after the people creating the criminality!! Politicians and bankers and oil workers ROB ALL OF US EVERYDAY!! EVERY EFFING DAY. WE ARE ALL VICTIMS.#getthesax Why is this conversation hard to start. UNA DEY FEAR?
