Zlatan Ibile was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) on Friday, 10th May, 2019, for alleged involvement in internet fraud. Others arrested by the EFCC include street rapper Afeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley.
Naira Marley has caused a lot of confusion on social media with his questionable stance on the subject of internet fraud popularly known in Nigeria as “Yahoo Yahoo.”
The rapper on several occasions has stated that cybercrime is the reason why money circulates in the system and that his fans should pray for people who engage in the illegal act.
He further showed his support for the illegal activity by making a song and releasing a video titled “Am I a yahoo boy”, a clear endorsement of the frowned upon activity. Other celebrities have supported his claim.
Davido and Zlatan Ibile are two main celebrities who have thrown their support behind the rapper’s rants.
Simi, on the other hand, has publicly condemned the act and has stated that she does not mind if yahoo boys stop patronizing her shows and listening to her music.
