Charly-Boy and daughter

Maverick entertainer Charles Oputa, otherwise known as Charly Boy, has narrated his experience at having a gay child, saying it was difficult accepting the reality initially, but haing gotten past the initial sentiments, he was now very happy and supportive.

The Area Fada, who despite his public life of weirdness, has maintained stability in his private life, which was accentuated with his marking 47 years of marriage to his wife, Lady DI, to whom he proposed for the fourth time recently, used his social media platform to narrate his experience on Friday.

Even though he claimed to have thrown his weight behind the Lesbians, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender movement, the Area Fada admitted that he did not envisage that he would habour such a lifestyle under his own roof, until his daughter revealed her status to him in 2016, adding that it left him with a lot of emotions.

Entitled: For Parents Only, he wrote: “About 4yrs ago, my last Princess of the house called me from America, from her tone I was bracing up for whatever she was about to tell me especially when she kept saying to me, ‘daddy promise me you won’t get mad at me, or give up on me,’” he wrote on Friday.

“As a matter of fact, I now look back and find that I am grateful for the experience of having a gay or lesbian child. Nothing can come between me and any of my beautiful children.

“I am close with my children and I love them to bits. They are my friends. But I wasn’t really ready for the ‘breaking news’ my Princess Dewy had for me. When my child told me she is gay, a lesbian, I experienced a range of emotions, during that phone conversation.

“So many things went through my mind, one of them included self-blame (did I do something wrong?) (the child I thought I knew and loved no longer exists.), worry (will my child be discriminated against?) religious confusion (is my child damned to spend eternity in hell?), and stigma (what will people think of my child? of me?).”

“I was hoping it was a prank but it was happening in real time. Even though I was unusually calm through that conversation, my mind was wondering in all directions.

“Months before this incident, I was lending my voice in support of LGTB rights in Nigeria. Is life playing tricks on me? Now my daughter is gay, why do I feel disappointed? Am I a hypocrite? How do I handle this bombshell?

“I told myself that I will get through this, and many months later I did. As a matter of fact, I now look back and find that I am grateful for the experience of having a gay or lesbian child,” he added.

Charly boy said he was confident that having overcome this challenge, there was nothing that could come between him and his children.

He said it is stupid to even think that having a gay child means that parents have failed.

“Acceptance of the truth is like surgery. It hurts but cures. A lie is like a pain killer. It gives instant relief but its side effects can last forever,” Charly boy said

Dewy replied her father’s post saying, “But just a few days ago �… you know what never mind,we already did this in 2018. Imma let you post your lil content for your follows.”
