catch the happy-go-lucky lyrics (UPDATED via taint.org):

I done suffer no be small Upon say I get sense Poverty no good at all, no Na im make I join this business

419 no be thief, it's just a game Everybody dey play em if anybody fall mugu, ha! my brother I go chop em

Chorus: National Airport na me get em National Stadium na me build em President na my sister brother You be the mugu, I be the master

Oyinbo man I go chop your dollar, I go take your money and disappear 419 is just a game, you are the loser I am the winner

The refinery na me get em, The contract, na you I go give em But you go pay me small money make I bring em you be the mugu, I be the master… na me be the master ooo!!!!

When Oyinbo play wayo, dey go say na new style When country man do him own, them go dey shout: bring em, kill em, die!

That Oyinbo people greedy, I say them greedy I don't see them tire That's why when they fall into my trap o! I dey show them fire

the funniest part is that they couldn't find a real white guy to be in their video.

more info on the guy and track

Comic actor Nkem Owoh (of Osuofia In London fame) just released a four track CD he likes to refer to as his debut album. The album released under the Kas-vid music label includes the track ‘I go chop your dollar’ and ‘love me till I die’, tracks already made popular in his films ‘The Master’ and ‘American Visa’ respectively.

Though these are great tracks, they were played so many times in the films we could have recorded them straight off the box (but we didn’t). The ‘four track album’ is moving quick units mostly in Lagos where it is being pushed by direct marketing; it is currently being sold straight out of public buses.

Owoh would be the second 'banned' actor this year to release an album, the first being Genevieve Nnaji, still look out for Omotola among others.

You got to thank the guy. He was comical enough to expose the scam in his own country
