Nigerian singer and human rights activist, Charles Oputa a.k.a Charly Boy shocked many of his fans when he striked a pose inside a coffin.
The singer who is not a stranger to controversies, in his Instagram post compared Nigeria to hell.


The former president of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria said If  he died and went straight to hell ,It may take him more than a week to realize that he is no longer at work or living in Nigeria.


Hear him:” If I died and went straight to Hell,
It may take me more than a week to realize
that I am no longer at Work or living in Nigeria.
Yeye rulers. God go punish una soon”



During the last election cycle, Charly Boy was accused by some of his former partners of compromising and collecting bribes from politicians.
The singer however debunked the claims saying anybody who tries to bribe him is a fool.


“It’s not anything beyond the lessons I have learnt about life. It is ripe fruits that people throw stones at and try to get off the tree. When you are fighting people’s wars, the people you are fighting for can sometimes turn against you. As an activist, you pick up all kinds of people, including those who you don’t know their pedigree because certain things have to be done and you need numbers. You may have to work with strange bedfellows who may not necessarily share your ideas and vision. And in Nigeria, there are a lot of fake people. I have been called several names including a homosexual and cultist; but those things don’t move me. My middle name is ‘controversy’ and when people do certain things thinking it would hurt me, I use those things as stepping stones to rise higher. If I didn’t collect money from any politician in years past, is it now in my old age that I would start doing that? Anybody who offers me a bribe must be a fool because I don’t trust my mouth to keep quiet. It is only idiots that would believe and spread such stories. I have nine children and my first son (who is 49) is an associate professor. I also have 16 grandchildren.
“I have learnt that Nigerians are not really ready for a change. We have a government that is insensitive to the needs of the people, and that is why a lot of young people are committing suicide these days because they cannot see hope anymore. And that is a tragedy.”
