The convener of ‘OurMumuDonDo’ movement, Charley Boy, actually took money to discredit Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the just concluded general election.
This piece of information was revealed to our correspondent by a very close friend of the popular singer, who gave his name as Okey, saying that the intention of Charley Boy was to collect the money and move ahead with his anti-government and people-oriented activism.
Recall that the Imo State-born entertainer had denied receiving money from the presidency, claiming that he admitted getting fund from the spokesperson of the APC Presidential Campaign Council to test how his co-convener of the OurMumuDonDo, Deji Adeyanju, who, on release from the DSS, resigned his membership of the group, citing Charley Boy’s derailment from their core aim of staying on the side of the masses as his reason.
But speaking on the matter, Okey said Charley Boy received money from the presidency with the sole aim of running down Atiku, defending the latter that he never planned to do that.
“He got money from Festus Keyamo and it was because of the song he intended to release, which the APC believe would whittle down the growing influence of the PDP presidential candidate. But to be truthful, he could not have done it because he has not lost focus on remaining the voice of the masses,” said the tall and lanky man.
