Maverick entertainer, Charles Oputa, aka Charly boy, has lent his voice to the massive exodus of Nigerian celebrities into politics.
In a chat with Saturday Beats, he opined that most of them (celebrities) were doing so because they were afraid of their future and only looking for a way of securing it.
“We are living in very hard times; I understand some of these issues because our environment has become crazy and unpredictable whereby they do not know what is going to happen tomorrow.
“I know to some people, they think politics is the way. We Nigerians are like ‘group-souls,’ meaning we just rush into what we see everybody going into.
“Whether we can go through that route or not is irrelevant; but because everybody is going through it, we just want to be a part of it. It is also known as the ‘bandwagon syndrome.’
“That is not a good thing, but I cannot stop somebody who is frightened of his/her tomorrow to venture in the same path. I pray and hope that they can make it because there is nowhere that is easy”. Source
