Ghanaian musician and business baron, Rashid Joseph aka Nhyiraba Kojo has said in his latest interview that it’s about time Ghanaians stop tagging young guys riding in expensive cars as fraud boys.
In an exclusive interview with Amansan Krakye monitored by Ghanaqueens.com, the ‘Sokoto’ hitmaker said;
“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 youths who do music and are living well so we shouldn’t say they’re into fraud.”
Nhyiraba Kojo went ahead to postulate that these monies received by these boys from abroad could be gifts from their friends who are kind enough to help them.
“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 their benevolence or for some business partnership, so how would you know.
“It is like those days that we were in primary school we used 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 own benevolence we tag such acts as fraud, for me it doesn’t make sense.”
