Festus Keyamo responds to allegation of paying bribe to Charly Boy

Festus Keyamo, spokesman of the President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation in the 2019 presidential election, has reacted claims that he paid Charly Boy money to diss Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, in a song.

Okay Nigeria understands that Charles Oputa who is popularly known as Charly Boy, accused Festus Keyamo of giving him the money in a recent interview.

Deji Adeyanju, Convener of Concerned Nigerians, had earlier accused Charly Boy of collecting money from Keyamo.

Although, Keyamo has denied the allegation and stated that he never paid anybody to sing a song to diss anyone.

He posted on Twitter:

“1. I’ve been having some good laugh. Whoever thinks that I would pay a penny for a song by @Areafada1 that disses both the APC and PDP must have his/her head examined. If the quarrelling parties want to hurt their egos by bandying phantom figures, they should leave me out of it.

“2. As we’ve said before, some of us ran the PMB campaign on zero budget as volunteers whilst the opposition was paying $90,000 monthly to an American lobbyist (N400 million per year). It’s therefore preposterous to suggest that a 9-figure amount or any at all was paid for a song!

“3. In the world of entertainment, it’s the culture of most (not all) entertainers to raise their stock in the public by bandying phantom figures for their engagements & some others display phantom acquisitions on social media to attract attention and raise their worth for clients.

“4. I’ve always encouraged @Areafada1 & @adeyanjudeji, who are my long-time friends & clients to continue on the path they chose for themselves. I will hate to see them fall apart. Therefore it behoves us all to work together to put things right. I always enjoy vibrant opposition!”
