I Go Chop Your Dollar

I Go Chop Your Dollar” is a song about advance fee fraud.

It’s performed by Nigerian actor and comedian Nkem Owoh and was featured in the movie, The Master, in which Owoh played a scammer.

These are the lyrics.  They are written in pidgin so they may be a little bit hard to understand.  But you can understand a few lines.  The person singing it is calling the people he scams mugus and himself, the master.  He says 419 — the scam — is a game.  He’s the winner and you’re the loser.

I Go Chop Your Dollar
I don 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, its just a game
Everybody dey play am
if anybody fall mugu, ha! my brother I go chop am

National airport na me get am
National stadium na me build am
President na my sister brother
You be the mugu, I be the master
Oyinbo I go chop your dollar, I go take your money dissapear

419 is just a game, you are the loser I am the winner
The refinery na me get am,
The contract, na you I go give am
But you go pay me small money make I bring am
you be the mugu, I be the master… na me be the master ooo!!!!

When Oyinbo play wayo, them go say na new style
When country man do im own, them go de shout bring am, kill am, die!
Oyinbo people greedy, I say them greedy
I don see them tire thats why when them fall enter my trap o!
I dey show them fire
