In the past week, virtually all the social network went agog with the news of Charles Oputa, aka Charly Boy aka Arefada being Gay. in this report published by National Mirror Nigeria, he purportedly came out of the closet. Read the report below;
“Controversial maverick entertainment personality, Charles Oputa, better known as Charly Boy, has set another record with his confession that he is gay. By so confessing, he becomes only the second publicly known gay man in Nigeria.This is a record that only Pastor Rowland Macaulay beat him to by being the first Nige-rian to openly come out of the closet and even establish a church that catered to only gays. Those who know CB well however say he’s not someone who likes being a follower. He’s always a leader in everything he does and he’s now ready to take his rightful leadership position in the gay world.
In an interview with a new publication, Danfo Express, CB declared that he is gay and not ashamed of being gay.
Even as he made other disclosures about himself, he didn’t forget to add that he is the head of the Illuminati in Nigeria, the same Illuminati that people accuse Jay-Z, D’Banj and Don Jazzy of being members and they keep deny-ing membership. While his audacious revelations might seem like a publicity stunt on his part, let’s not forget the saying ‘there’s no smoke with-out fire.’ For CB to say all these things about himself there must be an element of truth in them.
As a judge on Nigerian Idol, not only did he impose himself on the other judges, Yinka Da-vies and the American, Jeffrey Daniels, he was always going with a human skull to the show and once even went with a huge snake that scared the audience.”
However, the 60 year old Charly Boy took to his twitter and Facebook page totally debunking the claim and hinting that he was going to sue Saturday Mirror;
“I read with total dismay in Saturday mirror newspaper that I am gay and head of Illuminati.. I have neva sued before…but this time….”
