Happy Birthday Charly Boy

Happy Birthday Charly Boy, the birth name Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa, was born on the 19th of June 1950, is a Nigerian singer/songwriter, television presenter, publisher, and producer. One of Nigeria's most controversial entertainers, he is best known for his alternative lifestyle, political views, and media productions, most notably The Charly Boy Show.

The second son of former Supreme Court Justice Chukwudifu Oputa, although he has described his parents as liberals who always encouraged their children to express themselves freely, Oputa has also spoken about their conservative nature. He had set out to become a priest but left seminary school after a year. In his late teens, he moved to America where he attended college, graduating with a degree in Communications.

Oputa entered the music industry in 1982, and in 1984 independently released the highlife single Obodo GiriGiri. In 1985 was nearly denied a record deal with Polygram Nigeria due to his unconventional appearance until he was introduced to managing director Ton Seysener who signed him, and Nwata Miss was released.

He has been married to African-American singer and former fashion designer Diane for over thirty years. The couple has children together, and Charly Boy – who has been married before – has children from past relationships.

May God bless his new age
