|Controversies||• In 2019, Obed was arrested by Mohali police for allegedly exploiting around 40 girls. Apparently, he used to ask the girls for their semi-nude pictures in exchange for modelling assignments and work under the name of Gunbir Singh, who is the owner of one of the most prominent labels in the Punjabi music industry, White Hill Studio and White Hill music banner. The complaint was lodged by Gunbir against Obed under various sections of IPC including Section 419, 420 and Section 66C 66D of IT Act. In the complaint, he said,
"I am writing this to bring to your notice that my name is being misused by using different phone numbers. It has come to my knowledge that my identity is being used to call up girls from different phone numbers and address to exploit them by using my name. I am a leading film producer of the Punjabi film industry and the owner of the White Hill Studio and White Hill music banner,"
He further added,
"My name is being misused to mislead some girls and I am aware of the extent of damage that has already been done to my name and how far this will go if strict action is not taken against the accused."
However, none of the models officially filed any complaint against Obed. India Today
• In February 2022, Indian TV actress and model, Urfi Javed, took to Instagram and accused Obed Afridi of seeking sexual favours from models in a series of Instagram stories. She claimed that Obed refused to pay her for her work and that he is a sexual predator who video calls the girls on the pretext of being the producer of the song and then does indecent stuff. She said that she has proofs and screenshots of the chats in which he has asked girls to compromise or send naked pictures. After posting these stories on her Instagram handle, various known celebrities such as Priyank Sharma, Nikita Bhamidipati, Arushi Handa, and Priyanka Lamba came out in support of her. They too posted stories and narrated the instances when Obed misbehaved with them or someone they know.
In reply to this, Obed posted a story on his Instagram handle and stated that all those who posted against him were just jealous.
On 26 December 2017, a similar allegation was put on Obed Afridi by a girl on his Facebook post. She wrote that Obed exploits girls and nobody wants to work with him.
