Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy has reportedly admitted to collecting millions of naira from Festus Keyamo, a spokesman for President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign team.
The Guardian reports that Charly Boy who is the leader of a Nigerian socio-political movement #OurMumuDonDo Movement, however, told Roots TV that the money was a payment for the right to use a song he recently composed.
When asked how much the money was, Charly Boy stated that the money was in nine figures but stopped short of mentioning any specific amount.
“When Keyamo came to discuss Deji’s matter, he heard my new song that I was working on…where I was dissing Atiku,” Charly Boy said.
“I don’t care. But if you want to use my work, you pay for it.”
“Of course, he paid for it. And they paid heavy.
”He made the disclosure when reacting to claims by a Nigerian activist, Deji Adeyanju, Charly Boy, has been compromised.
Adeyanju who was recently released from prison after been arrested during a protest, said his partner and leader of the ‘our mumu don do’ movement, Charly Boy, had been compromised and for that reason he is pulling out of the group.
He alleged that Charly Boy has been in bed with their oppressors and is no longer fighting the cause of the ordinary Nigerian.
