How I found myself in prison – Charlyboy
Foremost Nigerian entertainer, Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa, widely known as Charlyboy, has declared himself a prisoner.
Charlyboy said he has been a prisoner from birth because Nigeria, his country of birth, is a prison yard.
The veteran singer told DAILY POST that, “it’s been quite a long time that we were born into this prison called Nigeria.”
Charlyboy, also known as Area Fada, stated this on the occasion of his 69th birthday.
Born on 19 June, 1951, the singer, songwriter, television presenter, publisher, and producer, said this when he visited those in Ikoyi Prison, Lagos State, a place he described as hell.
The music producer, widely regarded as one of Nigeria’s most controversial entertainers alive and has over time built his brand around major international, national and local controversies said young Nigerians were yet to realise that they are in prison.
