How to Become a Successful Yahoo Boy — Yahoo Boys Orientation:
1. Get a PC
It’s the first thing you must do as it demands you need to steadily have your system and privacy.
Sharing a PC with a friend won’t guarantee much success, or would it? Just a tip to success, you must have your personal computer by your side to become a successful Yahoo boy in Nigeria or anywhere else.
2. Get Your Modem
Without this, it’ll be pretty difficult for you to be steadily online even if you’ve got a hundred PCs. A modem allows you connect to the internet through enabling the means to subscribe to different data plans, depending and varying on the network operator you choose to use.
It’s also very important to share connections and gain access to different apps online. A modem isn’t expensive, it’ll cost you a bit lesser than N10,000 naira to purchase.
3. Opt for a Subscription Plan
Depending on what network operator you decide to use on your modem, subscription plans vary. The available network operators in Nigeria include Smile (for advance devices like Tablets and PCs), Glo, MTN, Airtel and 9mobile (formerly Etisalat).
The various networks offer different plans from daily subscription plans to monthly, and as a yahoo boy, monthly plans are usually the best plans for the business. It is noteworthy that PC subscription varies greatly from mobile subscription.
You’ll have to spend a little more expensive when planning for a PC subscription. Well, you have not too many options as you have to spend to earn.
4. Get Formats
Formats are mainly skills. These skills are deceptive methods to convince users online so as to earn. In the simplest of terms, they’re tricks played to pull in money.
The formats gathered on other entertainment blogs like Naij include pretending to be a wealthy American soldier in Afghanistan, online dating with online users and also, pretending to be a loan organization who lend cash to people online.
Generally, formats are meant to make people believe you enough so as to entrust amounts of money to you.
Success doesn’t come in a night, It is built gradually. The key to becoming a successful yahoo boy in Nigeria or anywhere else lies in your hands. Practice makes perfect, the more you do what you do, the more progress you’ll make.
This is a general rule and it applies to everything. Where one thing doesn’t work, try another and stay consistent at it.
6. Go Abroad
The most notable and rich yahoo boys in Nigeria today are the ones who while in Nigeria, gathered what they could and travelled out.
It doesn’t really mean you can’t do whatever you want and not be successful in Nigeria, it means there are quicker chances in making it big outside the country where you won’t be rejected even before you start.
Neighbouring countries are abroad, it doesn’t tell you to go outside the continent, no, not necessarily.
Truth That Stands
The country is killing a lot of youths and even the old are dying earlier than they’re supposed to. People are crying and dying more than being born everyday in the country. The feeling of frustration is what drives the youth strength in Nigeria to being yahoo boys.
Though all blames cannot be put on the Nigerian government first, but certainly, the Nigerian government is the head of the nation, and it’s faulty.
Boys are growing older, they’ll get married soon, there’s no work, they have dreams and everything isn’t going to sleep dead in the gutter of hopelessness, thus, resorting to yahoo, the quickest money making scheme becomes the favourite solution.
In the midst of all this, it is possible to build a multimillion dollar enterprise in Nigeria without venturing yahoo, but adding real value to the society and impacting lives.
All you need is to be smart enough to spot areas of scarcity, then leverage it by adding value and filling the gap. The government isn’t entirely our problem, it’s laziness eating up the Nigerian youths. These are what you should know before making this life-changing decision:
1. There’s a Huge Consequence
For every evil deed there’s a consequence. How would you feel if your hard earned money was stolen from you by an unknown trickster online? You’ll be happy right? Apparently no.
The people who become victims of yahoo boys’ pranks and lies on the web grow bitterness and some of these people will not rest until they get back to you as the scammer. They’ll either lay curses on you, or meet a spiritualist to get to you in the most disturbing and horrible way.
There are tons of consequences, and they’ll outplay themselves once you think you’ve started earning big and living the big life of a yahoo boy. These consequences come either as the aftermath of tasks that should be done to make money, or curses that’ll follow after you’re earning the money from clients online.
For those who intend to do more than just the normal scam people do, and involve the workings of a spiritualist so as to quicken the money making process, there’s even a far more worse consequence. The thing is; you’ll pay more for what you know nothing about when you start doing fetish things in a bid to catching the biggest fish in the sea.
Over 70% of yahoo guys who start buying expensive cars like Venza and GLK weeks after starting are not doing it without supernatural backings from a witchdoctor or other spiritualists, and the payback is usually life-taking.
2. Short Lived Success
The success is just for the main season, the now. You must have seen yahoo boys buying their parents cars and building houses from the money they didn’t earn, but stole.
These things may last, but the good Samaritan (the yahoo boy) who eventually and suddenly started building houses for his parents and buying flashy cars may not last.
Something will definitely happen someday and this will either lead to the loss of life of the good Samaritan, or the loss of properties built by the good Samaritan. Hereby, the money you’ll discover will not last forever.
I’ve known a number of yahoo boys who went to and returned from Malaysia and Ghana with millions, but are begging for N100 naira today. This is no joke, it’s happening and it’s simply the effect of laziness disturbing the hearts of young guys who become victims of their destructive decisions.
People who’s made their money through consistency and realtime genuine jobs have the very long success tale to tell. Becoming a Yahoo boy means a short and aborted destiny is sitting right on your shoulders, that’s the harm you’ll do to yourself and it’s hardly recoverable and reversed.
3. You’ll Get Attention and Bad Attraction
Yahoo boys get a lot of attention, a lot. These attention will swim closer from cultists, fellow yahoo guys, robbers and other norm-breaking hoodlum in the community. Attention from cultists is a bad attraction in itself.
The moment you start looking good than normal, cultists will start looking for ways to blend you into their confraternity. This is the case with guys who walk and do yahoo together in a room, they’re called “HK” and are usually in same confraternity.
Okay so when you start doing yahoo, and stealing people’s money online, fellow yahoo boys who’ve either gone ahead of you or who are seeking to start the “business” like you my reading reader will become glued to you. They want to club with you, fill you with different thoughts, rub you stains with more evil and maybe introduce you to the fetish side of the game.
Somehow, bad things will start happening because of the unusual aura you’ll move about with. You may encounter more fights, troubles and bad luck especially when you start making someone else weep.
Indeed, yahoo is a get-rich-quick-scheme but it’s not even a business, or is it. Ordinarily, the inspiration to spend unnecessarily will start pouring out like red wine after you’ve met with other “soft” yahoo boys who go clubbing night by night and sleeping with different girls. That’s the good life right?
4. You’ll Have No Internal Peace
As a yahoo boy, surely there’ll be no peace internally. No yahoo boy enjoys pure peace as he is worried as to what the people he’s deceived will do and also worried and uneasy with duping and stealing the hard earned money of innocent people.
Sometimes, thoughts of suicide comes to the mind of these guys, they’re being haunted by the acts and web theft activities they’ve successfully played out in the past.
Except one has a dead conscience, these things are not right and the conscience will fight against them for sure. They’re morally forbidden and out of the norms and standard of living as an accepted human being in the society.
The groove will always be there when you’re receiving the money that hasn’t been worked for, you’ll spend unnecessarily and waste money on things that matter less. With all this, that peace you get when you spend the money you’ve worked for will not be there.
When you work smart and add value, earn your money, spend the money you’ve earned from the value you’ve added (and you’re still adding) you’ll feel satisfied, relieved and independent. Furthermore, the moment you start becoming a prankster on the web, you’ll eventually develop a guilty conscience that’ll bug you endlessly forever.
