Why I left Nigeria – Charly Boy
Controversial musician-turned-activist, Charles Oputa popularly known as Charly Boy, says his reason for leaving was not hinged on insecurity, bad leadership or the deplorable state of the economy, DAILY POST reports.
While reiterating that nobody can intimidate or force him into exile, the Area Fada claimed that he left the country for a few weeks vacation.
He said, ”Me, leave Nigeria to go to where? I’m on a well deserved vacation and I’m going home in a few weeks. I cannot live anywhere outside Nigeria. We will all live or die here. Nobody fit push me comot from papas land, god punish dem. Dem no reach samsam.
”I am use to a life of suffering and challenges regardless of my spotless pedigree and my rich heritage.”
The entertainer also noted that the vacation will help him to re-strategize and reboot.
”You know when you stay in sh*t for too long, you start to smell like sh*t. Our environment has become very toxic, therefore, I needed to step out for a while to take a breath of fresh air, reset, re-strategize and reboot. I’ll never run for anybody. We die here!”
