Obidi, who noted she could only use laughter to console herself, said Nigerian ‘yahoo boys’ were learning, as she did not expect such alleged fraud in Mexico.

Obidi on Saturday said she only used the card at the restaurant to buy Margarita drink, only to receive up to seven debit alerts.

“Guys, first thing has happened in Mexico. I just got seven notifications…remember that place…the place that had the Margarita  ville…that I bought a $35 Margarita from? They have been charging this card for different fast foods, $225 here, $225 there. I’ve not even eaten dinner and someone is already been charging my card for different things.

“Remember that place that I told you that I felt like I was scammed; at the airport…the place that had a drink for $10 and all of a sudden the drink is $35. I just got a security alert from wings stop…someone has spent my credit card on some wings, and then I got another alert for some fast food, $285 of my money on wings.

“This is worse than Lagos, we are learning in their hands. Yahoo dey learn for their hand. Yahoo yahoo boys need to come and learn work from Mexicans’ hands.”

Obidi claimed the suspect went to eat chicken wings with her money.

Obidi said she thought she was smart but was rather outsmarted. “I be think say I smart based on the yahoo babe wey I be,” she said in pidgin English.

The singer, however, commended the Bank of America for coming through to her rescue in a fast manner.

“I’ve called the Bank of America. Thank God for the most amazing bank ever. I called them in five seconds, someone picked up the call and they blocked this card. I can’t eat, but they said they’re going to give me my money back,” Obidi said.
