Fact Check: Did Hollywood Celebrities Endorse Peter Obi As Charly Boy Claimed? by OLAADEX(m): 10:24pm On Nov 23
A viral post on social media claims that leading Hollywood celebrities have endorsed Peter Obi, the presidential flagbearer of the Labour Party (LP), ahead of the 2023 elections.

Charles Oputa, also known as “Charly Boy” shared the video via his verified Twitter handle, @AreaFada1, to his 157k followers on Monday.

Charly Boy is a singer, songwriter, television presenter, actor, publisher, and producer. He is well known for his alternative lifestyle and political views.

In the video posted on his Twitter page, which has now been deleted, some Hollywood actors and celebrities held a whiteboard which reads
yes it makes sense to vote Peter Obi in 2023”.

Verification

TheCable subjected the video to analysis on Invid, a video verification platform, to ascertain the validity of the video.

A keyframe analysis of the video was further subjected to Google reverse image search. The result of the analysis led to wired.com and laughingsquid.com, where we found the original video which was doctored to mislead social media users.

Checks by TheCable revealed that some of the clips from the original videos have been existing on the internet as far back as 2016.

Further search revealed that the doctored video posted by Charly Boy was cut out from different footage from Wired Autocomplete series, an interview session, where celebrities answer the most commonly searched questions about them on the web.

Ice Cube’s edition was first uploaded on April 11 2016, while Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey’s edition of answering questions from the web was uploaded on August 2, 2017.

The other celebrities had theirs uploaded subsequently while other videos were taken from various other sources.

A look through Charly Boy’s Twitter account also revealed that he is an ardent supporter of the LP presidential candidate.

Before deleting the tweet, some Twitter users had knocked him over an intentional spread of misinformation.

Replying to the comments, the singer said there was nothing wrong since other presidential candidates are never interested in the truth.

“I can’t believe that some mumu paid trolls will come on my page to be telling me what video is fake or true. Like the people they are supporting have ever been interested in anytin truthful or wanting to do good,” he tweeted.

Has anyone noticed that the dead meat griller has stopped calling out PDP the way he used to


Has anyone noticed that he has stopped saying "Never again would we allow PDP to near our vault again"

So does it mean PDP has changed? And made him start attacking ObiDatti's campaign


Or is it out of sheer hatred against one tribe?


God is a wonderful God, He will expose you in no distant time. grin grin grin


It is remaining Moh, YYibo and Ihordspy. They will surely be exposed too

Typical. Lying is in their DNA. Both old and young are deeply involved in it. It is what the party's candidate is most famous for.

Matter of fact, LP I believe stands for Lying Party.

That aside, it is only in this country I see citizens actively encouraging electoral interference from foreign actors. Foreign interference is one of the most egregious electoral crimes most countries wouldn't tolerate. Trump was accused of getting external help from foreign entities (governments and individuals) and the investigation of same haunted his administration to its very last days.

Nigerians need to be educated on what the implications of stuffs of this nature are.

The idiots that were the reason people always stoned PDP (in retaliation) have now taken refuge under the Lying Party.

Of course the darts will be directed at them wherever they go. If you pesky little gargoyles run to APUGA tomorrow, best believe our canons will be turning in the direction of APUGA. There shall never be rest for the wicked.
