Nigerian singer Charles Oputa popularly known as Charly Boy has taken to social media to write a heartfelt apology letter to his daughter Dewy over his post on her sexuality.
The music star took to his Instagram page on November 23, 2020 to apologise to his youngest daughter over his post where he revealed how he was able to cope after she revealed that she is a lesbian.
“I came into parenting the way most of us did — knowing nothing but trying to learn everything, becos, who no go no fit know. The journey of parenthood is an emotional roller-coaster, filled with happiness, sadness, worries, frustration, pride, excitement, and much more. Parenting is an amazing adventure.”
The singer also recounted how he was rebellious to his father when he was much younger and is not surprised about his daughters action as well.
“When people dey yab me say you dey tackle me for social media, I just dey laff. I dey laff bcos Na so I tackle my papa before I collect my independence. Lion no fit born goat. Never forget that the Oputa’s are very special people, and in you I see me,” he wrote.
“Since Saturday morning I have received thousands of phone calls from parents and young people who feel disconnected with their parents. Their testimony has been quite insightful. I was only able to offer a listening ear and soothing words, but I feel taller because our story inspired thousands. That’s a good thing.”
“My darling, I promise to allow you tell your story like I have been able to tell mine. I respect your perspectives and I understand. I brought you all up as Global Kids and not as timid village champions. Let’s just go back to the friendship we have been working on. I love you and no one can contest, not even you. My Charly Girl Princess Dewy Daddy’s Totori.”
Recall that Charly Boy recounted how he handled the news of his daughter about her sexuality which did not sit well with his daughter as she called him out on social media calling him an hypocrite.
