LGBT COMMUNITY: Charlyboy squares for a fight

Eccentric former President of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN) Charles Oputa says he’s up for a fight to protect lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender (LGBT) community in Nigeria.
The controversial musician who has constantly taken a vocal stance on social nay political issues in a post on his Instagram page said he has in time past fought for Okada riders and many others in the past and now is the time for him to fight for the LGBT community in Nigeria.
Charlyboy wrote; “All that I have done for over 50yrs of my life is to root for the underdogs.
“I turned my back on my goldplated pedigree and wondered into the unknown.
“I discovered that victory is a million times sweeter as an underdog. Oh!!!!! Yes.
“All my life has been one big fight, against bad habits, poverty, hopelessness and principalities.
“But I never backed down. I battled for the rights of the Okada’s to make a living.I battled for the rights, respect and the big money for the Nigerian Musician, spent weeks in the police cell, as a PMAN president.
“Today, thank God they have a better life. Now am the President of Frustrated Nigerians.
“I am battling with my comrades to stop the senseless killings of Nigerians.
“The oppression of innocent Nigerians and the weaponisation of hunger.
“Many battles too many to mention. I have been beaten black and blue by the military, police, security agents, been teargassed, shot at, stoned and most time misunderstood even by the people I fight for.
“No big deal because I never back down. Now I reactivate my fight in defence of the LGBT community?
“You know something? Openness may not completely disarm prejudice but is a good place to start. I am hoping that my support will be a show of strength to the Nigerian LGBT community.”
Charlyboy’s comments are coming days after his daughter Dewy faced a barrage of negative comments after she revealed she is a lesbian and also showed off her gay partner.
