Here’s what he said in part: “You are an entertainer and you are in a position to be a role model to younger ones coming up in the industry and you are greeting all the yahoo boys, all the fraudsters’ you are even calling their names personally; you are hailing them…”
His statement stirred up a lot of controversial comments on social media. While some Nigerians, especially Twitter users believe Falz is right, others totally disagree with the notion that Nigerian artists are encouraging crime with their lyrics.

To further buttress his stand, he has dedicated a full song to his preaching against the trend. On ‘Confirm’, one of the tracks off his recent surprise album, 27, Falz didn’t hold back his displeasure towards Internet fraudsters, calling them thieves.
Falz, on the first verse, raps; “Internet gangster, this the first chapter/ This brother just hammer, he collect from one maga/ Him steal person money, na hin he wan dey form swagga/ Everyday for the thief, one day for karma/ So you happy when you log into your online haven, and when you getting richer off another mans savings/ Stop explaining, that be lazy, No excuse you fit give them, No be only una wey be victim of the system/ No, you no be hustler, that one no be work sir
He continues; “You wan carry duffel duffel, instead make you hustle double, hoping you will realize you’re not in a real life, you’re not sharper than the nigga rocking a pins stripe/ Person talk small, you left threats in the comment section, you never got attention, then you try to flood the mention/ You don forget say this person get some God protection, Get your ass up before you end up for detention.”
