A gentleman who calls himself Yemi has declared that he is a ‘Sakawa’ boy and he actually feels very proud of it.
This public declaration by this man comes on the back of a viral tweet by one social media user who said cheating people on the internet or hiding behind rituals to make money should not be deemed as work but rather a criminal act.
Yahoo is not a hustle. You're a thief.

Per the tweet, this social media user was condemning cybercrime, fraud and money rituals that have been given a special moniker “Yahoo” in Nigeria and “Sakawa” in Ghana and how it has become rife.
Many netizens agreed with this assertion and said doing “Sakawa” or “Yahoo” is indeed a criminal act which nobody should be proud of.
Well, Yemi disagreed with this popular opinion and came back to write: I AM A YAHOO BOY!!! & I AM FUCKING PROUD OF IT!!!
…A tweet that has since gone viral and received varying responses from netizens.

You should be glad you’ve got a job lol, some educated creative graduates are out there still seeking for one

Stop bleating about yahoo boys, they are not d problem of Nigeria. A lot of these guys had 2 indulge in yahoo becos they were left with no options and I guess if you were in their shoes with no connections, jobs, nd an influential parents you’d do everything 2 rise above poverty.
