A Nigerian Twitter Influencer and digital marketer has asserted that internet fraudsters aka Yahoo boys are the reason girls no longer appreciate little monetary gifts
The young man with username @Ovo_himself449, said yahoo boys made girls to stop showing gratitude whenever a boy sends them N5k.
He reminisced on the past, saying that if the society hadn’t changed, a girl’s family would call to thank him whenever he gives their daughter 5,000 naira.
The ad specialist wrote; “If no be for yahoo ehhnn, if you give girl 5k her mama suppose even call you tell you “Thank you””
In reaction, @paybill01; No go build your life they blame yahoo boys here and there, like say na only yahoo boys they chop millions. If you broke you broke no use yahoo tak dy cover up guy. They’re nigga’s like you who are rich with their own person business and they spend on their girls massively!.ode
@zemano9; Normal, na only valentine flower & card and airtime we dey use date those girls before, na so dem turn everything upside down
@omo_aunty_mi; Omoo , so true , a laborer’s full day wages no reach 5k o
@kennethakure; Nor be only yahoo sef. All these our looting corrupt politicians join too, boys wen involve for oil bunkery join, the ones wen dey sell drugs join.
@ghettosun_naija; Though hypergamy is engraved in woman’s nature, but the coming of Yahoo boys deepen & expand it beyond normal stretch in today’s women. This is how prostitution ( hookups) get normalized today
@NK88637730; So, you expect your mother to call your sister’s boyfriend and thank him for giving your sister 5k? Families dey sha…smh.
Meanwhile, a Nigerian lady said she prefers getting married to an internet fraudster who is into Yahoo Plus than being with a man who has a regular job.
She explained that Yahoo Plus Boys usually cash out with the help of jazz so they which is a guaranteed way of making sure there is endless supply of money.
She said Yahoo boys are better than working class men because they can always renew their wealth whenever it looks like money is getting exhausted.
According to her, if a working class man goes broke, he has no immediate way of getting rich or escaping financial problems.
The young lady stated this during a street interview as she further said that the fraudsters have family members they can use to replenish their riches, whereas the guys with normal jobs don’t have relatives which is why they are struggling day and night at work.
She also said she likes the way fraudsters pamper their girlfriends, take them out in their cars and how they act like cute couples with the babe in the front seat.
When asked if she would be comfortable staying with a Yahoo boy that is unable to make money for about three years, she rebuked the idea of such happening to her boyfriend.
She, however, reiterated that the benefit of being with him is that if the money gets exhausted he can always use the jazz and renew it.
The interviewer also asked if she is not scared of the fact that EFCC operatives often go after Yahoo boys, but she said she has no business with them.
