Musician and activist, Charly Boy has said he will leave Nigeria if the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar or the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate, Bola Tinubu emerges winner of the 2023 general election.
Earlier today, Tinubu secured more than half of the votes at the party’s convention to clinch the ticket on Wednesday.
He polled a total of 1,271 votes from the 2,322 delegates at the Special Convention on Wednesday.
Like its predecessor, The Charly Boy Kiddies Show failed to gain sponsors and was subsequently cancelled. However, in 2010, Charly Boy established The Charly Boy Kiddies Affair in Abuja, which aimed to boost the potential of Nigerian children
Reacting on Twitter, Charlyboy who entered the music industry in 1982, and in 1984 independently released the highlife single Obodo GiriGiri said President Muhammadu Buhari will look like a saint if Tinubu emerges a winner.
”If any of these two jagbajantis win, I go just leave una waka go Ghana, go beg dem for citizenship. Buhari will look like a saint.”
In the late nineties, Charly Boy began to wear his hair in dreadlocks and adopted a goth image, acquiring piercings and tattoos which were frowned on by society who viewed his modification as Satanic and occultist. In 2012, he introduced his fans to Linda, his female alter ego. Charly Boy continues to sport the goth look, and in 2014 he shaved off his dreadlocks due to a thinning hairline
