Eccentric Nigerian singer and songwriter, Charly Boy, born Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa, has knocked critics who called out his lesbian daughter, Dewy, following his statement about crossover service.
The 71-year-old had questioned the significance of crossover night, saying that it was not mentioned anywhere in the Bible.
Some critics, however, called out his daughter after the the post was made.
In an Instagram post, the singer also known as Area Fada wrote: “As Charly Boy Oputa, I have never let the expectations and opinions of other people affect my life. Because I live my life on my own terms, not yours and I’m fearlessly myself.
“But some Mumu Naijas are throwing tantrums because I say “crossover” nights are nonsensical. They call out my gay daughter as if am ignorant of her sexuality; such stupidity.
“If you’re so sure of your faith, why do you get upset when I doubt it? The least you can do is pray for me as I pray for people’s mumu to bellyful dem, but no, you will still come here to exhibit your ignorance. Well, I no send anybody.
“I have resolved to be more savage come 2022. So be ready because the truth hurts hypocrites a lot.”
Charly Boy had earlier called on Nigerian youths to leverage their growing population and harness technology to their advantage.
“Most young people were born as the rot worsened. Anyone born after 1970 didn’t witness the Nigeria I was born into. I feel sorry for them as it has always been bad from then when we started this downward slide,” he added.
“I feel sorry for young people, many of whom are acting out in ignorance. They don’t know any better. But I still believe the salvation of Nigeria lies in the hands of exceptional people who are among the youth.
“I’m not surprised that, when young people leave Nigeria, they blossom. Young people should stop feeling there’s nothing they can do because they have so much working in their favour technology-wise and in numbers.
“Our enemies will do what they always do from their old playbook. You can’t convincingly prove that the mindset of the 18th century can conquer that of the 21st. It’s not going to happen. It’s just a question of time.”
