Cyber-Crime Giving Nigerians Horrible Image In International Community – Falz

Published

Since controversial rapper, Folarin Falana, a.k.a FalzTheBahdGuy condemned artistes who celebrate cyber-crime, popularly known as Yahoo Yahoo, he has come under heavy criticism from the public.

However, in a chat with Showtime, while reaffirming his resolve to continue condemning social vices in his songs, the daring musician noted that cyber-crime has given Nigerians a horrible image in the international community.

I’ve always said it from the beginning and maybe I was the first person to get a backlash on this. I’ve never been a fan of celebrating cyber-crime. When I said it in an interview, it got me a lot of backlash. I will say it again and again; cyber-crime is wrong, cybercrime is giving us a horrible name especially outside Nigeria.

It’s destroying our youths and a lot of people are feeling it’s the only option. I understand the sentiment of people being not privileged and feeling like they don’t have the opportunity and they feel this is the fastest way to get money.

But people are out there actually putting in efforts, toiling, struggling to make it by doing legitimate stuff and not just taking from someone else.

One thing I believe in is that live your life, let others live theirs as long as you living your life does not affect another person negatively.

So long as you are taking from someone else, that is an offense even against humanity and it’s bad. I’ve never subscribed to it and I’ve never been a fan of celebrating it, he said.

Is Love Without Billing Possible In Southern Nigeria? —Reno Omokri

Published

on

I can understand why Moses Bliss married a Ghanaian. I have been to Ghana, and their women tend to be easier to relate with than many Southern Nigerian women. In fact, is love without billing still possible in Southern Nigeria? In our part of the world, ‘He is loving’ means ‘He is spending’. When you tell many Southern Nigerian girls, ‘I love you’, they hear, ‘You owe me’. Especially those with Industrial Money Obtainer culture. If you marry the Industrial Money Obtainers, I pity you. The billing will become industrial. You will look after her and her entire family. No capping. And better not expect gratitude. In their eyes, you are doing your duty.

If Nigeria had visa-free or visa-on-arrival access to more countries, there would be an epidemic of unmarried women in Nigeria. Because when Southern Nigerian men travel within Africa and outside Africa and encounter beautiful women who are not money conscious, they quickly lose their appetite for Nigerian women. Already, Nigerian men are considered a catch by South African and Kenyan women.

We urgently need a cultural reorientation amongst our women. Especially in Southern Nigeria. The monetisation of relationships in Southern Nigeria is just too suffocating. I am well-traveled, and I am yet to see the level of commercialisation of romance I have seen in Southern Nigeria. I call it as I see it!

She went on to say that she met her husband as a graphics designer and had no idea “he was singing”.

“When I first met my husband, I did not know he was singing. Because I already said I cannot marry a singer. He used to do this King of Photoshop. I have never heard him sing up till that time. I think he was even a fan,” she said.

“He had sent me a message on Facebook. I never saw it. I still have not replied. I sensed that it was him that would be good for me.”

But what would we be without our dreams, I have long given up planning my life, whatever the gods bring, I thank them and go. It is our lot, it is God’s plan and we are grateful, at least we are not an unmarked grave at the cemetery.”
