My sister who works in Paypal sent me this oldie. Didn’t see it before and I thought it’s too fun not to share ;)
I don suffer no be small
Upon say I get sense
Poverty no good at all, no
Na im make I join this business
419 no be thief, its just a game
Everybody dey play am
if anybody fall mugu, ha! my brother I go chop am
National Airport na me get am
National Stadium na me build am
President na my sister brother
You be the mugu, I be the master
Oyinbo I go chop your dollar, I go take your money dissapear
419 is just a game, you are the loser I am the winner
The refinery na me get am,
The contract, na you I go give am
But you go pay me small money make I bring am
you be the mugu, I be the master… na me be the master ooo!!!!
When Oyinbo [white person] play wayo [trickery], them go say na new style
When country man do im own, them go de shout bring am, kill am, die!
Oyinbo people greedy, I say them greedy
I don see them tire thats why when them fall enter my trap o!
I dey show them fire
Some words you might be missing:
By the way, I’m not considering Nigeria as the world capital of online fraud; some other nations have long since gained the honor. Still, the song makes you smile, doesn’t it?
PS, there was an unhappy ending to this song, at least from the singer’s perspective:
And another PS, when someone sends you a link to a cool video, make sure they did that intentionally… But relax, I wasn’t trying to prove a point about social engineering and how easily people fall for Trojan downloading scams; I just wanted to let you all
enjoy some beat.
