Charles Oputa popularly known as Charly Boy has disclosed that he plans to organize a concert to mark the death of his father Justice Chukwudifu Oputa. Though, the date of the concert is yet to be announced, it would feature prominent musicians like Dbanj and Terry G.
Oputa, a former Justice of the Supreme Court, died Sunday afternoon at the National Hospital in Abuja at the age of 96.
Charly boy, who spoke to reporters at his residence on Monday, May 5 in Abuja, described his late father as man who lived a fulfilled life “so there is a great need to celebrate him.” He further urged Nigerians not to sympathize with him rather, “they should join in celebrating a life well lived.”
“My father was a good and great man, though we did not start off well because in the beginning he always felt I was too rascal. I did not obey orders and I got tired of his rules, regulations and restrictions so it was important that I go my own way,” he said.
He added that, “I thank God I did that because at long last since the past 25 years; I won the kind of respect I deserved from the man who thought that the direction I took was a wrong move. For the past 25 years, we bonded and I am proud to have a father like him.”Follow Us on Social Media
