Nigerian rapper, Falz the Bad Guy found himself in the middle of a storm on social media after his advice to fellow singers, to stop praising Yahoo Boys, a parlance for internet fraudsters.
Falz spoke in an interview on Hip TV, that hailing the Yahoo Boys amounts to glorification of what is wrong in society and urged artists to desist from doing so for the sake of the future.
In his interview, Falz made mention of no one, but he was soon pitted against 9Ice, an older musician, with commentators divided on the merit of his advice.
Watch the video below:
Singer 9ice responded to Falz advice saying his music does not promote internet fraudsters. Watch below:
Nigerians, not to be outdone, also took to different platforms to expressed their views on the issue.

Falz that was born rich is talking like it's easy for people to make a decent living . It is not in his place to say what he said

So Falz is getting flack for what he said about hailing fraudsters & crooks in songs?
Nigerians are NOT ready for the change they crave 🙄
