Mothers can bring an end to hookup, yahoo yahoo culture in Nigeria – K-Solo

Record producer, Solomon Oyeniyi, known professionally as K-Solo, has opined that for modern sex work aka hookup and internet fraud (Yahoo Yahoo) to end, mothers have a key role to play.

He blamed women for the growth and promotion of both vices in the Nigerian society, noting that they hardly reprimand their children who engage in such acts while others encourage hookup culture.

K-Solo who was speaking in a recent interview with Arise TV, added that celebrities also played a role by negatively influencing the youth.

He recalled meeting a woman and her teenage daughter on a day his car broke down, and overhead the woman telling her child who dressed like a grownup, that he should bring something home.

The producer said; “Hook-up in Nigeria is now like ordering food. It’s almost normal. They even defend it by saying it happens abroad. But I think there should be rules guiding it.

“A lot is backed from the underground. The people who can help from the home side are the women; the mothers. I’m sorry, but mothers are the biggest disasters. There was a day when my car broke down on the road and I saw a young girl, she should be like 16 or 17, and she was going out.

“I heard the mother tell her in Yoruba to bring something back. I confronted the mother, asking where her child works because she was dressed so fine and looked too good to be going to the office in that dress. She couldn’t answer.

“I looked at the mother and said, ‘By look, I’m older than you. What are you doing at home that you’re telling that poor girl to bring something home?’ Now, let me quickly add this again, when Yahoo started in Nigeria, it was the mothers who were picking up the fraud proceeds from the bank. This shouldn’t sound like I’m talking from a book. It’s what has been happening.

“The day mothers and female advocates start speaking against these vices more, there will be a lot of changes. The day female celebrities who flaunt their luxurious lifestyles on the internet come out and let girls know how they hustle on the fields, a lot of young girls will go back to the drawing board.”
