Popular Urban highlife singer, Adekunle Gold has rubbished reports that before he became a star, he used to aid and abet internet fraudsters, popularly known as ‘Yahoo boys or Gee boys’ by helping them edit fake documents.
This accusation came after Simi his wife and fellow singer, took to her social media page to speak against internet fraud activities and the negative impact it is having on genuine Nigerians seeking for international opportunities.
“It is important for Nigerians to change their minds when it comes to people practicing internet fraud. There could never be a way to garnish or make it acceptable and so yahoo boys should stop giving Nigeria a bad name by making the country a laughing stock abroad.” Simi noted.
Reacting to her post, a twitter user asked; “Dekunle, hope you’ve heard what your wife said about yahoo boys?.
Which Adekunle Gold responded saying “Yes and is there a problem?”.
The twitter user then replied saying; “Why don’t you let her know that there was a time you used to edit documents for yahoo boys for their scam activities?”.
But the singer(Adekunle Gold) replied saying; “There was a time like that? How come I’m just finding out myself?, wow.”
Not so satisfied with Adekunle Gold’s response, the twitter user replied saying;
“Because you never found it wrong then, until the dreams became different. Just tell your wife that because she had the privilege doesn’t mean others will and she should not criticize anyone. Let people reap what they sow; no damn human being is holy. She should put her mouth on her mic and make music and not in people’s hustle affairs.”
