Why Query Indigenous Morals, when the New Trend Drag Morals in the Mud

Indigenous Morals vs New Trend
As early as the millennium, there lies significant alteration in the way and manner people (youths) think, act and react towards things. A lot of factors can be considered as the causes of these significant changes viz; Globalisation, Modernization, Culture Contact, Education, Technology... Obviously, trends today seems different from how we were brought up because it drag  morals in the mud. These trends have, therefore, necessitated old fashionistas or strong believer of indigenous way of life to be seen and tagged with different names;
  • Archaic,
  • Old fashioned,
  • Out of touch folks,
  • Spiricoco i.e. pious
  • Local i.e. not in vogue,
  • and any other word you can think of.
However, no matter what you call or think of me, it won't stop me from saying what's on my mind. It's just who I am. The rate at which we (youths) now paint immorality is so lovely that if David was in this century, he will do more than what he has done without remorse. It is so bad that we now wish ourselves immorality. The first time I heard a guy wished another fellow happy birthday, I was so angry that I had to unfriend him immediately. For heaven sake what does "more pussy to your dick" mean? Is that a kind of prayer or what, some will even eulogize their friends as "Oko Ashewo".
Are we really the leaders of tomorrow? 
Is that what we intend to pass to the next generation? 
I bet it with you if we continue like this, the world will be beyond repair until a divine messenger is sent to put us back on track. 

I wish we transfer some of the values and morals our fathers had then to this generation. Such values are appropriate dress sense, respect for elders, collective consciousness, utterances with dignity, and so on. Due to the neglect (or substitution) of all of these today, some old people are even happy that their time is up because they can't stand some of these strange behaviours of ours. Please don't tell me it's 21st century because that has been our justification for thwarting morals and values and it should hurt any sensible and knowledgeable being. 

Above all, I know, I'm Old. 
Old enough to know this generation is sick,
Old enough to know we need a revival,
Old enough to know we now have the shadow of what we used to enjoy...
But can I shock you, I'm not old, I am from this generation too. We can all strive to make a difference. Technology is to make our lives better and not to destroy it. It is to enhance culture and not to kill it. We misuse opportunities yet we want to live a good life. Live responsibly today, and your name will forever be celebrated.

Ten Awkward Lifestyles of "Yahoo Boys" Worth Neglecting to the CORE

Yahoo Boys Lifestyles
As promised earlier on a post on this blog "Why Yahoo Boys Lifestyle is all You Need to Win Big in Life" to uncover the awkward lifestyles of Yahoo boy worth neglecting to the core amidst the good attitude itemized earlier, I now publish this for your reading and digestion. In essence, the operations, activities and actions of Yahoo boys reflect; the good, the bad and the ugly side. Justice has been made on the good side of these folks worth emulating while the bad and the ugly side will be discussed in this article.

Basically, the awkward lifestyles of newbie and long-time Yahoo boys are as follows;
  1. Binge drinking of alcohol/spirits
  2. Lavish spending on luxuries
  3. Quest for money at all cost
  4. Womanizing
  5. Heavy smoking of any kind - cigarette, shisha, kanaku, skunk, weed...
  6. Excessive use of narcotic drugs 
  7. Immoral dress sense
  8. Clubbing every now and then
  9. Zero regards for tomorrow
  10. Zero regards for the family name.
Without mincing words, 90% of Yahoo boys/men today lived day-to-day on the highlighted which will remain injurious and damaging if followed fully or partly to all and sundry. For better clarity, these awkward lifestyles enlisted above are explained further.

BINGE DRINKING
This is one of the awkward lifestyles of Yahoo boys worth neglecting due to it's social and health implications respectively. On a social note, it is highly inspirational for the gathering of men but it could lead to unnecessary arguements/fights due to the level of individual alcohol/spirits in-take. 
On the other hand, the health implication so excessive drinking bears much consequence on the lifespan of such perpetrator because most of their intake are spirits, dry gin or pure ethanol. Invariably, binge drinking is an awkward lifestyle adopted by Yahoo boys all in the name of being rich and famous forgetting the fact that moderacy is key in sailing through all endeavours.

LAVISH SPENDING ON LUXURIES
Well, the way and manner people get their money to an extent determine how they spend it. This is why real business mogul only receives salary from their businesses rather than spending the business money lavishly.
In this case, Yahoo boys from far and near - new and old folks spend excessively/lavishly/provocatively all in the name of living the life of their dreams. They pump whooping sum of money in; cars, clothes, jewellery (especially expensive ones) and lots more. Don't follow their footsteps, they are living for today and don't be surprised they might be nowhere to be found tomorrow.

QUEST FOR MONEY AT ALL COST
The lifestyles of Yahoo boys today justifies the popular saying  "Money is the root of all evil". This saying remains debunkable because the orientation/interest/attitude of people differs from any point of view especially when money is the focus.
Well, it is good to be ambitious and desirous of goodies of life - money, fame and power. But the way and manner people sort-after these remains breathtaking in Nigeria of today. To the Yahoo boys, money is all they want, through any means without minding the end-result on themselves and their families.

WOMANIZING
This lifestyle is not only linkable to Yahoo boys but rather to anybody who has the wherewithal (as a result of their profession/occupation) - money, pretty face, cars, jewelleries e.t.c. However, the way and manner Yahoo boys operate in this ministry remains super in nature. To an extent, they are the King in the business because they spend lavishly on whatsoever that interests them - leaving a large number of covetous girls of today with no choice other than to dance to their tune. Through this dealing, most ladies have lost their lives - money rituals while some are actually working for their money as Yahoo girls; Olori Wire, Wire Bitch e.t.c.

HEAVY SMOKING OF ANY KIND
There is no gain saying smokers are liable to die young when some puff daddies lived longer than anticipated. On another note, the fact still remains that smoking is highly injurious to the smoker and paramountly its inhalants. Due to the health implications, Yahoo boys who can smoke anything (weed, skunk, kanaku, shisha..) on any platform is worth avoiding to the core.

EXCESSIVE USE OF NARCOTIC DRUGS
Drug use/abuse is a proven issue emphasised by drug law enforcement agencies in Nigeria to avoid unnecessary incident/accident (killing of a fellow being, public stupidity...). Yahoo boys today are living examples of people who use drugs for the support of their task or enjoyment but its effect can be devastating if abused.

IMMORAL DRESS SENSE
Most Yahoo boys today dress in a certain way that they will be easily spotted while some actually dress in rags to avoid being noticed. This lifestyle is not encouraging at all because they ain't proud of their dealings.  Special thanks to them for the popularity of sagging and the use of designers worth more than what their parents can afford.

CLUBBING EVERY NOW AND THEN
This is simply the house of most Yahoo boys when they hit their target. Note, this is not a place to visit frequently but because they want to feel superior over other participants "Game Boys", they go extra mile to keep themselves as regulars.

ZERO REGARD FOR TOMORROW
Tomorrow in itself is a mirage in totality, hence, Yahoo boys believe in their day-day endeavours. This is why they go broke and therefore resort to rituals just to continue their usual daily routine activity. Only relatively few like 'investorbj' give regard for tomorrow.

ZERO REGARD FOR FAMILY NAME
Due to the nature of their hustle, they tend to neglect their family names to front nick names just to cover their shiii. Invariably, the damage they are doing to themselves will also be traced back to somewhere since they do not drop from the trees like mangoes. Hence, remember to live day in day out protecting your family name always. Don't be like them, family first.

Above all, the highlighted awkward lifestyles of Yahoo boys above should guide you on how to live a purposeful life.

Why Adopting "Yahoo Boy" Lifestyle is ALL you Need to Win BIG in Life

Yahooby lifestyle
For clarity purpose, it is highly imperative to note at this very beginning that this article does not preach or support Internet scamming  popularly called "Yahoo-Yahoo" (now termed Yahoo Plus) in any form but it rather explains the lifestyle of the practitioners that is worth emulating in any of your dealings - academics, business, apprenticeship...

Without mincing words, it is agreeable that Yahoo-Yahoo is not a new phenomenon/activities in Nigeria today. In essence, it is a trending path to get rich quick or make money online through pretence, deceit and other forms of mischievous dealings you can ever think of.

It is often believed that hard work, perseverance and persistent is the key to success which is why no job, occupation or profession enjoys success without this trio element. To the people, that are conversant with yahoo yahoo guys, you will agree with me that they give it all it takes to achieve their financial acumen. However, if you are not familiar with their lifestyle, this article will provide you with the necessary information. Such lifestyle are as follows;
  • they are the early riser
  • they are diligent
  • they are desperate for success
  • they don't give a damn about threats (internal and external)
  • they are optimistic 
  • they are highly focused
  • they love their job - they are passionate and proud of it
  • they always shut their ears to critics
RELATED; Five Place Knowledge Can Be Easily Acquired in Life (No. 3 will Amaze you)
All the highlighted points are inherent in the life of most Yahoo Boys which is all you need to be successful in any of your dealings. For clarity purpose, these Yahoo Boy lifestyles will be analysed and explained one after the other.

Early Rising have often been one of the yardstick for evaluating a successful being from onset. This is so because most millionaires and billionaires take naps and not sleep elongatedly - for long hours. The yahoo boys often wake up early to put things in order just to propel the new day. Some of them even do special prayers at early hours or during special time (12:00am, 1:00am) before starting the day's activity. 

Diligence is another essential thing for every individual yearning for tremendous success in his/her dealings. For instance, the Yahoo boys often give a follow up therapy to their clients' every now and then, monitoring their activities in order to make ends meet. In essence, in any endeavour you find yourself - diligence is key to a successful ending.

Success Demands is not really something to worry about but rather it must be a part and parcel of every seeker of success. Fela Durotoye once said, "you don't mind success and get it but you need to be desperate to have it". The case yahoo boys is a living proof justifying this saying because they tend to pool their resources (material and non-material) together to make ends meet. Some often go extramile to get money for subscriptions, money to fuel their gen, incision, use of spiritual itmes; soap, tortoise e.t.c. 
In essence, be desperate for success in your dealings withough going against the norms, values and cultural heritage of your land.
Threats/Challenges is one factor that is capable of pushing/crushing one from his path to success. To the yahoo boys, threats means nothing too serious for them to quit their hustle. Internal threats are those that correlates with the fact that it negates the agreed on ways of making money. External threats are the act of the Nigeria Police Force (particularly the Special Anti-Robbery Squad) designed to ameliorate/stop internet criminals. Threats from the likes of late Alhaji Gay never for once reduced yahoo yahoo's activities in Nigeria. Moral lesson for you readers, learn to walk/work with challenges/threats because they cannot bring you down (except you give up) but it makes you stronger.

Optimism and Focus is another area worthy of mentioning in this post. To be optimistic is simply to have a positive spirit while focus can be likened to determination. To the yahoo boys, all they see is teh good (positive returns) in what they are doing and they do that with great sense of duty (determination).
Hence, in any endeavour you chose or find yourself - be optimistic and highly focused for sucess sake. 

Passion is significantly the pioneer point that defines tremendous success. This is so because passion for one's dealing makes one triumph over the hurdles on the way. Hence, the yahoo boys are often passionate about what they do and they are proud of it (even though they cannot make a public declaration of what they do but by their fingers we shall know them).

Above all, their innate attributes also make them triumph in their endeavours. Most, if not all of them has this special attribute - smart, intelligent and always proactive in every situation they find themselves. Against the positive lifestyle of these practitioners as highlighted above, there lies a lot of awkward lifestyle - scary and demeaning. Kindly, sit back and relax as I discuss it in detail in my next post.

Live the yahooboy lifestyle #LTYL
