On if the yahoo boys were blown bigger than it actually is, Naira said;
They just named everything to do with Fraud as Yahoo. That one is wrong in the first place. Nigerians are not even the biggest scammer. We're not even in the top hundred, but we are like the face of it. What is a yahoo boy? What it that like? ... over there in the UK, you can say anything we want. You can say I don't think the Queen is doing this, I don't think ... no one's going to arrest you. Over here you can't do that. I got arrested for no reason, I was just talking too much on Live Instagram
