Controversial Nigerian singer, Naira Marley has released a new song comparing the attacks on him to that of legendary Fela and Mandela following the reactions to his statement that glorified internet fraudsters, asking Nigerians to pray for them as they help in the circulation of wealth in the Nigerian economy.
This statement has provoked reactions from many who publicly canceled the singer for a remark that was made without shame as he continues to stand and speak up for internet fraudsters who do nothing but reap people off their wealth.
I know it doesn't matter but I am deleting every Davido, Naira Marley and Zlatan's music in every platform I have them on! I don't support "Yahoo yahoo", listening to them means I do!

The singer in an Instagram Live video earlier had not only asked Nigerians to pray for Yahoo boys, but he had further dissed Simi, stating that the singer had ignored him when he saw her at Homecoming on the 21st of April and he had done ahead to ensure that every expression of “See me” is spelled “Simi” which is in a way referring to his industry colleague.
If I ask you a question, I’m asking you a question… am I a yahoo boy?… I didn’t say anything about your marriage, I don’t give a fuck about your marriage… You saw me and you were acting up
In the wake of the reactions that followed his pro-cybercrime Instagram live video, the singer has reacted with a freestyle stating that he’s no Yahoo boy and people are trying to come for him the way they did Fela and Mandela. With the song, one would see that Naira Marley actually does believe he’s fighting the good fight for the fraudulent community of Yahoo boys, just that in the song he insisted he’s no Yahoo boy as the word “Yahoo boy” was not inscribed on his forehead.
Simi see trouble, am I a yahoo boy? … E mi o mo Sars o, Sars te mi mo is Sars on the beat… Olopa kole mu wa… won fe she mi bi Fela(They want to treat me like Fela), won fe she mi bi Mandela, (they want to treat me like Mandela) won fe she mi bi president Kennedy won fe she mi bi MKO Abiola… Eyin blogger blogger, She mo jo omo Yahoo?…
Watch the video below;
How Fela, Mandela and the great men Naira Marley compares himself with came into the picture is uncertain but one thing is sure, the Japa singer believes he’s fighting the good fight for his own sect of segregated people that are “helping the circulation of wealth for the growth of the Nigerian economy”.
