The public eye has been on 9ice after he was called out by Falz for supporting internet fraudsters in his song.

On Living Things, he sings about how his people are into the act, and how having money is all that matters.

In a recent interview, he was asked about the song, and what his opinion was on cybercrime.

Rather than denounce the act, 9ice stated that the real thieves were politicians. He said, “We have politicians that are rogues, that are thieves, walking with police and una no dey talk anything about them.”

He added, “You have your senators and your governors… They use English to blow you guys away. Una no fit punch them and kick them. They are the real thieves.”

When the host asks, “So the Yahoo boys are not thieves?”, he replies “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
