Fans of the Lads from Lagos will enjoy this Friday piece of silliness: a classic 419 pitch from one Prince Obi Matumbe Akumbe, who's ditched the traditional email and decided to lay out his stall on YouTube: Good stuff. Anyone interested in taking up Prince Obi's tempting offer should get in touch via, of course, his Twitter …
"Thank you to all who have messaged me. Although I am happy with the size of my manhood, I would like to hear from people with bank accounts."
Laughs from Lagos..
Thats just too funny
Cracking stuff, especially some of the stuff on Twitter
Bank scams courtesy WEB2.0
In 10-15 years we will be getting holographic images of this poor guy and the very large objects that are being inserted in his bottom.
Maybe he should move to some other countries where people pay to see these things happen, then he would not need to have his money transfered.
"very large objects up my bottom"
New keyboard please...
Fridays dose of Epicness
Well done for finding that one!
Funny as f%*$...
...but clearly a tongue in cheek piss-take. No scammer would draw attention to other people's mistrust of him (Mr Wright, who suggested *ahem* "relations" with his mother).
Love it though.
What's the day? Friday!

Says the twittering 419er.
I smell parody
I'll C that Bet and Raise IT to the House Limits, whatever they may be.
There must be some real good dope available in Nigeria. Bravo, Prince Obi Matumbe Akumbe, and have you ever thought of going dDutch with a SWIFT Alien Account to bring NEUKlearer HyperRadioProActive IT to the People. Win Win if you Care 42 Dare, Bro.
Hes not a lagosian,stop bashing
But where in this clip did the guy said he was a lagos lad and did you honestly belive any scam artist will be bold enough to put such clip online? please lets stop the bashing
I really Would
I really would give him my bank account details - he seems genuine.
What a shame, I am not a Christian, I don't think he will trust me - even though he obviously Trustworthty!
Sense of humour FAIL!
Please let's stop being stupidly brainless. Or humo(u)rless. Most likely both.
Spoof, and a good one!
Prince Obi owes me a keyboard before I can help.
Priceless spoof - he doesn't appear to request anything but help (in removing large items from his bottom). It appears to be well scripted, however. But as convincing as a playmobil reconstruction (Hey - can we have one with the Prince having large things removed...?)
Twitter? Titter, more like!
Someone's front room?
I especially like the ordinary sofa and the obvious radiator draped with a cheap throw and a couple of wooden elephants. Looks to me like an unusual and modern attempt to get some quick comedy fame.
Oh, so THAT'S where Optimus is hiding this week! Right next to this guy's prostate- which he definately has as he's clearly a genuine man.
I love the towel over the radiator with the two elephants, attempting to disguise the fact that its a radiator belonging to a house in Hemel Hempstead and possibly not Lagos ( would they need central heating ?? )
Hello my good friends!
I am so pleased you have enjoyed my video message and that so many of you seem to want to help.
I find some people are frightened to senmd their bank numbers to my email, but I understand The Register is a fine publication with many trustworthy souls, so it is safe for you to place you banking details here and we can conclude our business where everyone can see.
Obi 1 Kenobi or sumfin. Sure sounds serious to me.
I giving myself a mental hug :)
I love the way he talks "thank you for your polite refusal. It is nice not to be told to insert fruit into myself or to pleasure farm animals."
