Charles ‘Charly Boy‘ Oputa says he hasn’t endorsed a candidate for the 2023 presidential election.
In an interview with Arise TV, the singer said he has to first “interact with and interrogate” the candidates.
He said any candidate who will have his support must “come with a different story” and “inspire hope”.
The singer however disclosed that he looks to announce his preferred candidate by November.
“I’ve been under intense pressure to say who my preferred candidate is, but I’ll say that at my own time when it is right,” Charly Boy said.
“It’s because I have I still have to interact with and interrogate as many candidates as possible so that I know exactly what I’m telling my children to do.
“They have to come with a different story, not the one we’ve been used to for a long time. They have to inspire hope, that person must be who we look up to emulate.
“We have the history of most candidates, we know what’s what and part of the problems we have today is ourselves.
“However I think the hopelessness has united a lot of outstanding, exceptional youths of this country and I just hope that this great change that we desire, that we so badly need will happen at least while I’m still alive.”
