Nigerian singer Simi has come under massive heat following a video she shared where she stated that Yahoo Boys should stop buying her music.
The newly wedded singer, made this known while reacting to the way the country has been as a laughing stock due to the level of fraud being done by these boys.
Simi in the video said;
“they are laughing at us. They are laughing at us. I am repeating it because I have seen it. Do you know how many Nigerians going to business meetings or just to get the smallest opportunity for themselves to make it and they leave with nothing because they are Nigerian, that’s the only excuse they get. Sorry, we can not work with Nigerians.
Common guys, you don’t have to like me, you don’t have to listen to my music, you don’t have to send me, but you see, I am not the enemy. I can easily sit down and pretend that nothing is wrong and just make money, smile, cheers blah blah, but the thing is, I care too much, if I didn’t give a sh*t, I wouldn’t say anything. I’ve had friends that have done Yahoo. I’ve had friends that have thought about it.
This, of course, did not sit well with many social media users, who have since taken to Twitter to slam her.
Here are some savage responses to her plea;
Simi is trash talking Yahoo boys yeah, but na Yahoo boy sign her husband, push him career with yahoo/Music money! The hypocrisy 😂😂. Wait till we find out how the owner of X3M music got his money.

The music industry is filled with a lot of yahoo boys . The music industry depends on yahoo boys for survival.
Why can’t simi call out her colleagues in the industry who are into fraud ??
All these “I hate yahoo boys”is just for the gram abeg .

You don’t have the moral standard to drag Yahoo Boys/Fraudsters if you campaigned and voted for any politician
You and Simi are the biggest hypocrites – for smiling at politicians and frowning at yahoo boys
Evil is evil – irrespective https://t.co/phqVyLU95u

@SympLySimi F’d up big. If you’re saying yahoo boys should not listen to your songs, you’re also saying liars, fornicators etc should not listen to your songs. Let me burst your bubble Simi; we all lie, and I’m sure you had premarital sex with AG before you guys got married

Simi telling Yahoo boys not to buy her song is like when Jay z & Beyoncé telling those who are into drug not to download their songs.
Sounds so stupid.
We know say Yahoo no good fine.
But which one is they shouldn’t buy your songs. U for talk this thing when u just start na🚶🏻♂️

Simi shouldn't have said what she said.
she should have banned politicians embezzle nation's fund too from attending her shows, since she wants only people with clean money to be contributing to her success.
To Yahoo boys, God sabi una room number oo

Does Simi music even appeal to the Yahoo boys? I don't see why she is tripping telling them not to buy her songs, It's not like they can "Gbese" to her songs.
