I Have Been Living In A Prison All My Life – Charly Boy by odun360(m): 1:52pm On Jun 23, 2019
Nigerian entertainer, Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa, widely known as Charly Boy, has declared himself a prisoner. Charly Boy said he has been a prisoner from birth because Nigeria, his country of birth, is a prison yard.

The veteran singer told Potpourri in a chat that “it’s been quite a long time that we were born into this prison called Nigeria.” Charly Boy, 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 overtime built his brand around major international, national and local controversies, said young Nigerians were yet to realise that they are in prison.

The singer, turned activist on Wednesday visited Ikoyi Prison in Lagos State with members of Our Mumu Don Do group and Na We Be Government Movement as part of activities lined up for his birthday.

The renowned singer made the visit alongside Solo artist, Mrs Anehita Aletor who shares the same birthday with him, as well as Augustine Omoifo who is the organizer of the prison tour.

Charlyboy and his Movement also used the opportunity to help in facilitating the release of some prisoners awaiting trial for over a decade or more.
The Area Fada and his team, also fed over 200 inmates during the visit.

Speaking, the Area Fada said, ” it’s been quite a long time that we were born into this prison called Nigeria, and the first thing that comes to mind on a day like this is to visit those in hell. If we are in prison, then you can only imagine where they are.

“This is the only way we can reach out, the only way we can save a life.

“Unfortunately, majority of us don’t even know we are in a dungeon. Unless we realize this, we will continue in this eternal anguish.

“But like I have always said, the survival of our country depends solely on the ability of our young men and women to break out of this prison by fire by force, whether them like’am or not.”

Nigeria is so corrupt that boys no longer grow into men. I was expecting this guy to become Charly Man at 69...
Maybe, just maybe, the prison caused it.

I think this prison has favored you and has been good to you. You've always had the option of leaving this Prison, but instead you choose to remain in it.

From the header, I thought Charlie was talking about being in prison as per his sexuality.
I'd have said, " Baba has been out of the closet for as long as we've all known him o".

Area father, only you is living in Kirikiri.
You lived in Gbagada in Lagos, and now Abuja.
Why didn't you lived in Mushin or Ajegunle?
Shift make we hear word.
