Ghanaian musician, Nhyiraba Kojo is at limbo as to why most Ghanaians associate young men living extravagant lives with fraud and money rituals.
According to Nyiraba Kojo, he doesn’t understand why the young rich white kids abroad who exhibit similar lifestyle are not tagged as unscrupulous beings.
“First of all if we put music aside, if you see any young guy cruising a nice vehicle then some people would conclude that it is fraud. For all you know the person might have parents or siblings abroad or maybe the car might not even belong to the one riding it.”
“So if you see some young ones driving a car and you conclude that they’re into fraud then it means you’re not smart. Secondly, can’t God bless the young ones to also drive the best of cars in town. So me especially these fraud statements I don’t support it.”
“Why don’t we also say that white young guys who ride the best of cars abroad are also into fraud because, for all you know, they might be living on the wealth of their parents? To me, there are more youth who do music and are living well so we shouldn’t say they’re into fraud.” he stated.
Speaking with Amansan Krakye in an exclusive interview on Cape Coast-based Kastle FM, Nhyiraba Kojo posited that he didn’t understand the logic behind the whole fraud and ritual money because when a white man sends money to people in Ghana, it is not seen as fraud money.
“It might be someone who has dashed them a car and given them some money to work with. Even if the person was sent the money from a white man abroad it might be out of their benevolence or for some business partnership, so how would you know.”
“It is like those days that we were in primary school we use to have penpals who sent us gifts or items, is that one too fraud. So why is it that when someone chats with a white man abroad and the person decides to send some money through their benevolence we tag such acts as fraud, for me, it doesn’t make sense.” He finally stated.
