Simi has revealed if internet fraudsters, popularly known as “Yahoo Boys” buying her songs and streaming her videos online means she is promoting internet fraud, then they should stop patronising her.
She said this while she engaged her fans in an Instagram Live Video last night. In the video, Simi was outrightly downplaying internet fraud. She said there is no way anyone could glorify fraud, she said it’s wrong and that it totally negates normalcy.
While she was expressing her thoughts on “yahoo yahoo,” one fan who was watching the live video told her she shouldn’t condemn the guys that involve in fraud, the fan said those same guys she condemns are the one who buy her songs and go as far as watching her videos online.
In response to the fan, Simi said irrespective of the fact that internet fraudsters buy her sings and stream her videos, it doesn’t mean she wouldn’t condemn the act. She infact said, she would like them to stop buying her songs and streaming her videos. She said she is satisfied with people who patronise her music with money that is made through legal means.
“If buying my CDs and streaming my videos is what you want to use to hold me down, please don’t buy my songs and don’t stream my videos. I don’t even get it, what is wrong is wrong, stop glorifying what is bad. Stop people even go as far as being fetish with this scam of a thing. It should stop” (Simi’s words have been modified for proper understanding), Simi said.
We hope this latest remarks of Simi on “Yahoo Boys” does not affect her music sales and career business though.
Her comments are thoughtful still!
