@68 Charlyboy Reveals How He Found Him Self In Prison

Foremost Nigerian entertainer, Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa, widely known as Charlyboy, has declared himself a prisoner.

The veteran singer told Akelicious 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 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. Enough of this nyamanyama.
