Falz the Bad Guy has stirred some controversy after his advice to fellow singers, to stop praising Yahoo Boys, a parlance for internet fraudsters.
Falz spoke in an interview on Hip TV, that hailing the Yahoo Boys amounts to glorification of what is wrong in society and urged artists to desist from doing so for the sake of the future.

In his interview, Falz made mention of no one, but he was soon pitted against 9Ice, an older musician, with commentators divided on the merit of his advice.
Here are some of the comments that summarised the controversy:

Falz should give same advice to his dad. His likes have made n continue to make Nigeria much worse than Yahoo boys ever will

can’t blame falz, though 9ice was never right. But I guess Falz had it all while growing up, some struggled growing up

This Falz criticism is the sum total of all that is wrong in this country. The level of illiteracy is baffling
