Perturbed by artistes who glorify internet fraud via their music, leading Nigerian pop star, Ayo Balogun a.k.a Wizkid has condemned such acts.
The self-proclaimed Star Boy noted that he wants to be the kind of artistes that lead by example.
Wizkid who has been consistently romantically linked with Tiwa Savage made this known during the 2019 Tony Elumelu Foundation Forum .
“I wouldn’t want to be that kind of person, I feel like the kind of person I would want to be is to lead by example. All I can do for myself is to continue to be successful and touch many lives that I can. And I hope that every kid out there looks at this and emulate that and also want to be brave. When I started music, I made just N250k and now we are talking about big numbers here. Just so you know, that you are not going to change anything by singing about yahoo yahoo,” he said.
The likes of 9ice, Naira Marley , Olu Maintain and Kelly Handsome have in time past glorified internet fraud in their music.
Nigerian rapper and actor, Falz had also expressed his dissatisfaction over the growing trend of artistes promoting internet fraudsters in their music.
