I posted yesterday about 419 scams and a pop song related to the topic, and after a little more poking around, I found a talk discussed here, in which a few more 419 scam-related songs are mentioned. Here they are:
The first song “Yahoozee,” by Olu Maintain, while the second is “No More Yahoozee [The Reply],” by Harri Best Moradiyo. Both songs seem to be related to the travails and legalities of being a 419-scammer, in roughly the same way that being a business exec is glamorized, or criticized, in the American media.
Which gives me an idea for some deep-future story I’m sure I’ll eventually get around to writing…
Also, a weird news story about the performer of “I Go Chop Your Dollar”… seems the like the same lawlessness that was the subject of the comedy of that song also worked out badly for him personally, though he was soon after freed.
