The leader of Phats and Small and former vocalist of “Turn Around,” Ben Ofoedu, has joined Greg Smith’s campaign for the Mid Buckinghamshire Conservatives in the general election. The 51-year-old pop icon from the 1990s was spotted canvassing close to Princes Risborough with the incumbent Tory. Before the July 4th vote, Smith shared on X (previously Twitter) how happy he was to have Ofoedu’s backing, saying the musician was “helping me turn it around for the Conservatives on the campaign trail this general election.”

In Loosley Row, Ofoedu was seen with Smith knocking on doors and delivering flyers to hamlet residents. Ofoedu, who is also well-known as Vanessa Feltz’s ex-fiance, has demonstrated a strong interest in politics. With Smith’s backing, he aims to start his own campaign to unseat Sadiq Khan as London’s mayor. Ofoedu recently made an appearance on the right-wing television network GB News, which further demonstrated his aspirations for politics.

Ofoedu’s involvement coincides with Smith’s bid for reelection, however this time he is running for the newly formed Mid Buckinghamshire seat as opposed to his previous Buckingham constituency. Greg Smith (Conservative), Carissma Griffiths (Labour), Anja Schaefer (Liberal Democrats), Greg Smith (Green Party), and Yvonne Wilding (Social Democratic Party) are the contenders for Mid Buckinghamshire.
