The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday arrested Nigerian musician, Afeez Fashola alias Naira Marley over his hit track, ‘Am I A Yahoo Boy’ featuring Zlatan.
The musician was taken to the EFCC office in Lagos.
However, the EFCC is yet to offically react to the arrest of the youngster.
Naira Marley during a recent Instagram live session, urged Nigerians to pray for internet fraudsters (Yahoo boys) saying they are the reason money circulates to the common man.
He said: “All you guys, all the money in your pockets, all the money you spend, you think it’s the government that is making the money go round?”
The video has since stirred reactions from Nigerians who described Marley as a disgrace and bad example to young Nigerians.
However, a few Nigerians have supported Marley, saying that Yahoo boys are the reason some Nigerians can eat and survive.
The singer is popular for his 2017 hit song titled ’It’s a goal.’
