“if ‘magomago’ gets into my matter, I will show Nigerians another side that they have never seen before” : Charly Boy

Leave a comment

Charlyboy, AKA Areafada has made headlines recently on different newspapers for posing nude in a picture. In this interview, the enigmatic social crusader and the eccentric one has finally disclosed why he posed nude in the picture that went viral on the internet. The Excerpt.
Question: One wonders where you have been this period that the media has gone wild about you.

Charly Boy: I have beene been hibernating in my room, sipping fruit punch on the rocks, and having a damn good laugh at some peoples timid, conservative and myopic mindset, and I will always thank God that am different and special, and not bugged down by such pedestrian intelligence.

Question: We are wondering why you continue to keep quiet over series of stories that are being circulated about you.

Charly Boy: You know I will always remain cool with a smile when everybody is loosing sleep over my actions or inactions. No matter what, anything I do attracts attention, and even at that, not doing anything at all attracts attention. Everyone is entitled to his or her perception of the brand. what they feel or believe the brand represents doesn’t really matter. We all see an issue from where ever we stand, so if you are an artiste, you will for instance see the so-called nude picture from a creative standpoint. If you are a deeper life kind of person, you will start to moralize and may even paint me the devil. For me, it all comes with the territory; I’m an entertainer and an artiste, so if people start to swallow panadol on my behalf, should that be my concern? I know damn too well who and what I am and that is why am severely myself, because I believe in me, as a result, I don’t give a damn what you think that I am, because I already know who I am, and am confident in that knowledge. So why should I have anxiety over my playfulness and youthfulness. I no send anybody massage oooo.

Question: You filed a suit against National Mirror; at what point is the case now?

Charly Boy: My case is still in court with the National Mirror, I know some dumb asses would feel like, Oh, he just wanted to make noise. He is not serious about the matter, but I guess time will tell who the real fools are. I know some people in this country feel like because they have money, they can buy anything even justice they don’t even deserve. Lagos high court went on vacation over the past months so as soon as they come back in the next few weeks, the matter will be called up. And let me warn, if ‘magomago’ gets into my matter, I will show Nigerians another side that they have never seen before. Don’t forget that I on my own have faced corporate bodies in this country and have won, so Jimoh Ibrahim and National Mirror are small fries in my book. I have taken on bigger platforms. Una go hear am soon, stay tuned.

Question: Even while battling with National Mirror on the controversial issue of gay and lluminati, your nude picture hit the internet again. How did this happen?

Charly Boy: So? Don’t I look good for my age? How does one get to look that good if you don’t take care of yourself? Did you see crawcraw on my body? If you see nudity, what I see is discipline. I challenge you to find in this Nigeria, 61 year old men who look like me and are in the best mental, physical and spiritual shape.

You think it is moimoi? Do you know how hard I work to keep that body like that? How else, if it is not discipline? I don’t drink, I no longer smoke cigarettes, I don’t womanize, I workout every day and I watch what I eat. I do so many things that I know a lot of people don’t have the will power to do. On my blackberry profile, I post different pictures on it, sometimes it’s all about my beautiful children, sometimes it’s about my parents, most of the time it is my beautiful wife, sometimes it’s about the people I inspire, the youths. Of cause, if I want to be mischievous, I post me sleeping in my casket, or showing off my beautiful body. So why are they not spreading the pictures of my fine wife and children? Why are they not spreading the pictures of my struggles or all the motivational things that I do, can’t you see where their minds are? In the gutter of cause…

Question: What were you trying to achieve by displaying such picture on your Blackberry profile?

Charly Boy: I’m in the comfort of my house doing my thing, and you are asking me what I’m trying to achieve. People in my area see me every morning jogging as if I am training for Olympics, and I should not celebrate with myself the result of all the hard work I have been doing over the years? What is your damn business whatever picture I put up on my own phone? If you are on my contact and you see that kind of picture, why don’t you ignore it? But no, they will be the first to put it on their own profile and be circulating it all over the world; I really don’t mind shaooooo, because I know I look too good for my age. God worked overtime on my body and made me ever special. I thank him every day for that, so dey there dey ask me what am trying to achieve. All of una with una boring and frustrated life, no be una subject of discussion for the past one month? You no see how my matter they sweet for them mouth, abegi…abegi. And who said they were nude pictures anyway? Did you see my blocos there? At best you can say that the pictures were suggestive; everyone knows am a big tease.

Question: Obviously, this is not the first time you are posing suggestive in a picture. Can you tell us why you keep doing this?

Charly Boy: Why not? I’m happy with my body and I’m telling you that I work very hard to keep it in shape. I have it, so I’m flaunting it; do you mind?

Question: We understand that most of your fans are mainly young people. Don’t you think that appearing like that in a picture could easily be misinterpreted by them?

Charly Boy: My life story has inspired many young people, they understand my playfulness and my youthfulness, because there has been so many positives things I have done and still doing in the past 35yrs of the brand. They remember my contribution to the entertainment scene in Nigeria, how I brought respect and big money into the scene. Listen, no need to blow my trumpet, you know my contributions and how I have championed many other peoples causes. So they know and they understand and I’m happy about that. If you can’t get it, na your business be that.

Question: How positive or negative do these several rumors affect your business?

Charly Boy: My own is that I’m making Bank, and business is good. Do not forget that I am a communicator. Most of the things you consider negatives may be positives to me, and even when you force the negatives too much on my face, I will convert them to positives. I am on top of my game sha.

Question: How do your children feel, seeing their father appearing waggish?

Charly Boy: They are so tickled with my swag. They like the Charlyboy character but they love Mr Charles Oputa; that is who they know.

Question: What would you consider the worst story ever about you?

Charly Boy: The one they said that I ‘said” when I did not say. That is why we are in court. Enough of this jungle journalism. It is getting so obnoxious.

A Purpose Driven Life (a must read for you)

Leave a comment

What drives your life?

I observed that the basic motive for success is the driving force of envy and jealousy! Ecclesiastes 4:4

The man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder – a waif, a nothing, a no man – Thomas Carlyle

Everyone’s life is driven by something. Most dictionaries define the verb drive as “to guide, to control, or to direct.” Whether you are driving a car, a nail, or a golf ball, you are guiding, controlling, or directing it at that moment. What is the driving force of your life?

Right now you may be driven by a problem, a pressure, or a deadline. You may be driven by a painful memory, a haunting fear, or an unconscious belief. There are hundreds of circumstances, values, and emotions that can drive your life. Here are five of the most common ones:

Many people are driven by guilt: they spend their entire lives running from regrets and hiding their shame. Guilt-driven people are manipulated by memories. They allow their past to control their future. They often unconsciously punish themselves by sabotaging their own success. When Cain sinned, his guilt disconnected him from God’s presence, and God said, “you will be a restless wanderer on the earth.” Genesis 4:12. That describes most people today – wandering through life without a purpose

We are products of our past, but we don’t want to be prisoners of it. God’s purpose is not limited by your past. He turned a murderer named Moses into a leader; and a coward named Gideon into a courageous hero,and he can do amazing things with the rest of your life, too. God specializes in giving people a fresh start. The bible says, “what happiness for those whose guilt has been forgiven!…what relief for those who have confessed their sins and God has cleared their record.” Psalm 32:1

Many people are driven by resentment and anger: they hold on to hurts and never get over them. Instead of releasing their pain through forgiveness, they rehearse it over and over in their minds. Some resentment-driven people “clam up” and internalize their anger, while others “blow up” and explode it unto others. Both responses are unhealthy and unhelpful. Resentment always hurts you more than it does the person you resent. While your offender has probably forgotten the offense and gone on with life, you continue to stew in your pain, perpetuating the past

Listen: those who have hurt you in the past cannot continue to hurt you now unless you hold on to the pain through resentment. Your past is past! Nothing will change it. For your own sake, learn from it, and then let it go

Many people are driven by fear: their fears may be a result of a traumatic experience, unrealistic expectations, growing up in a high-control home, or even genetic predisposition. Regardless of the cause, fear-driven people often miss great opportunities because they’re afraid to venture out. Instead they play it safe, avoiding risks, and trying to maintain the status quo

Fear is a self-imposed prison that will keep you from becoming what God intends for you to be. You must move against it with weapons of faith and love. The bible says, “well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life – fear of death, fear of judgment – is one not yet fully formed in love.” 1 John 4:18

Many people are driven by materialism: their desire to acquire becomes the whole goal of their lives. This drive to always want more is based on the misconceptions that having more will make me more happy, more important, and more secure, but all three ideas are untrue. Possessions only provide temporary happiness. Because things do not change, we eventually become bored with them and then want newer, bigger, better versions

Its also a myth that if I get more, I will be more important. Self-worth and net-worth are not the same. Your value is not determined by your valuables, and God says the most valuable things in life are not things!

Many people are driven by the need for approval: they allow expectations of parents and spouses or children or teachers or friends to control their lives. Many adults are still trying to earn the approvals of unpleasing parents. Others are driven by peer pressure, always worried by what others might think. Unfortunately, those who follow the crowd usually get lost in it.

I don’t know all the keys to success, but one key to failure is to try to please everyone. Being controlled by the opinions of others is a guaranteed way to miss God’s purposes for your life. Jesus said, “no one can serve two masters.” Matthew 6:24

A PURPOSE-driven life – a life guided, controlled, and directed by God’s purposes is what we should strive to have! Nothing matters more than knowing God’s purposes for your life, and nothing can compensate for not knowing them – not success, wealth, fame, or pleasure. Without a purpose, life is motion without meaning, activity without direction, and events without reason.

Without purpose, life is trivial, petty and pointless

Point to ponder:
Living on purpose is the path to peace

Verse to remember:
“You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you.” Isaiah 26:3

Question to consider:
What would my family and friends say is the driving force of my life? What do I want to be?

Prayer points:
1. Lord help me to learn about my past, the mistakes I’ve made, and to put them away. Help me to receive the freshness that comes from being in your presence where old things are passed away and all things have become new

2. Open my eyes to see that material things will never bring me fulfillment but having a relationship with you

3. Teach me to always rely on you to make the right choices in life. Without you, I am nothing. Uphold me by your free spirit, challenge me into the things of God and help me to keep my head up looking to the hills from whence my help comes whenever I go through life’s issues In Jesus Name I pray!

Popular and alleged cannibal of the 90’s Clifford Orji has died

Leave a comment

Popular Nigerian cannibal and 12 years inmate of Kirikiri Maximum Prison, Clifford Orji, has died of unknown causes.

Prison authorities said Orji died Friday morning and the cause of death is unknown; but an autopsy is being performed.

Clifford Orji’s health has been deteriorating due to the refusal of psychiatric hospitals to take him in.
The Deputy Comptroller of the prison, Mr. Noel Ailewon, had said Orji was in a bad state and had gone completely mad.

“Orji’s health is getting worse. He has gone completely mad, vomiting and even defecating without restraint and is naked most of the time” he said

The Director of Office of the Public Defender, Mrs. Omotola Rotimi, had said during a visit to evaluate the number of Awaiting Trial Persons that following a court order, Orji was taken to two Psychiatric hospitals for treatment but had been rejected.

“Initially, we took Orji to Yaba Psychiatric Hospital but was rejected because they claimed they did not have long-term medical facilities. Subsequently, he was taken to another hospital in Ewekoro but was similarly rejected” she said.

It was learnt that due to this challenge, Orji, who was 46-years-old, could not stand trial in court.
The Attorney-General of the state, Mr. Ade Ipaye, had said Orji’s case was stalled due to the impediments, adding that unless Orji received proper medical attention, he would not stand trial.

“Orji is mentally disturbed and no hospital is accepting him. Unfortunately, one cannot be tried mentally stable, so, he’s stuck in the middle. All we can do now is find help for him” he said.

Orji was arrested in February 1999 by the police under the bridge along the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway. He was subsequently charged before an Ebute-Meta Magistrate’s Court on 19 February but was never tried.
The acting Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Prison command, Mr. Biyi Jeje, confirmed Orji’s death to our correspondent on the telephone.

“As at Thursday, Orji was fine but on Friday morning, he died in his sleep. The cause of his death is still unknown but an autopsy is being performed,” he said.
