The spokesman of the President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation, Festus Keyamo has said he did not pay money to Charly Boy.
Concise News understands that Charly Boy whose real name is Charles Oputa, made the allegation in a video interview.
This was after an earlier claim by the Convener of Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju, that he collected money from Keyamo.
However, Keyamo said anyone who believed he paid a penny for any song by the latter needs to have their heads examined.
He tweeted: “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!”
