This talk is a reflection on recent developments in Nigerian popular music, focusing on songs dealing with the 419/internet scammer controversy ("Yahoozee," by Olu Maintain, "No More Yahoozee [The Reply]," by Harri Best Moradiyo, and "Oyinbo, I Go Chop Your Dollar," by Nkem Owoh), and on musicians' reactions to the Central Bank of Nigeria's recent attempt to outlaw the "spraying" of cash at ceremonies.
