Nigerian 419 SCAM: Now the Music Video!? - Nigerian 419 SCAM: Now the Music Video!?
Tue, August 14 2007 | 9:04PM | PermaLink Feedback?

It was bound to happen, a musician in Nigeria by the name of Nkem Owoh has made a music video and posted it to YouTube about the whole Nigerian 419 Scam thing... cause inevitably ex-Minister what's-his-face always fails to transfer that $28,000,000 he stole from his government to your neighbourhood bank account... I wonder why?

Anyhow, Nkem Owoh's video is called "I Go Chop Your Dollar", and it is directed by Uzodinma Okpechi. The funny thing is that this video is better than half the stuff MTV plays these days - the gist of the plot is a scammer reveling with his dancers and a song in his heart, while a greedy witless mark is duped.

"I go chop your dollar..."is the chorus, and by the third round it really sticks in your head. I'm amazed Saturday Night Live hasn't already caught on to this and spoofed it.

Check out I Go Chop Your Dollar here, but first I need you to deposit me some funds my good friend! Yes!?

Here are a couple of lines from the music video;

419 no be thief, it's just a game
Everybody dey play em
if anybody fall mugu,
ha! my brother I go chop em
Oyinbo man I go chop your dollar
I go take your money and disappear
419 is just a game
you are the looser, I am the winner
