Perhaps coincidentally, Naira Marley who is a year older today, also released the official video of his hit track, ‘Am I A Yahoo Boy’ featuring Zlatan on Thursday.

Naira Marley has been in the news lately for so many ‘Yahoo’ related news. During a recent Instagram live session, he urged Nigerians to pray for internet fraudsters (Yahoo boys) saying they are the reason money circulates to the common man.

He said: “All you guys, all the money in your pockets, all the money you spend, you think it’s the government that is making the money go round?”


The video has since stirred reactions from Nigerians who described Marley as a disgrace and bad example to young Nigerians.
