I got up early this morning and chose to use the time before I had to depart for work looking at some videos on You Tube. I came across the Osuofia video above called "I go chop your Dollar". A friend tells me the video has been doing the rounds by email for a while so forgive me if you have seen it before. Osuofia for those who aren't that acquainted with him is the stage name for Nkem Owoh a Nollywood actor, reportedly one of the Nollywood crowd with the biggest profile outside of Nigeria, mainly due to the success of Osuofia in London which has been shown repeatedly on BEN TV and other external Nigerian TV stations.

The Video is attempting to be a hilarious look at 419 scams (Confidence fraud) from the point of view of the fraudster recognising that in the main people who are taken in are the greedy and the stupid. Personally I think its socially irresponsible for such a high profile Nigerian Celebrity to wade into this debate on the side of the fraudsters. At this critical time in our nations march towards progress and remarketing itself as a place to do business, its really the last thing that is needed. The scams are called 419 after the section of the Nigerian Criminal Code that covers Fraud. I'm suprised that Uncle Sege (alias Baba Iyabo) hasn't had him picked up already.

Actually i have to disagree with you on this one. I thought the song and video was hilarious.

best line in the song "national airport na me get am ,national stadium na me build am"

How anyone falls for the lies peddled by naija scam artists beats me (probably the same people who fall for penile enlargement and free ipod spam emails)

I think its irony at its best.

Lol, I find this so funny. I think it's a sound track for a Nigerian movie called The Master or something, my lil' bro was telling me about. The movie is meant to be really good.
