Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, has said prominent musicians; Dbanj and Terry G would perform at a concert to mark the death of his father, Justice Chukwudifu Oputa.
Oputa, the former Justice of the Supreme Court (JSC), died Sunday 4 May at the National Hospital in Abuja at the age of 96 after recovering from a brief illness. Charly Boy, who spoke to News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, at his residence on Monday [May 5] in Abuja, said his father lived a fulfilled life “so there is a great need to celebrate him”.
He urged Nigerians not to sympathise with him rather “they should join in celebrating a life well lived”.
“My father was a good and great man, though we did not start off well because in the beginning he always felt I was too rascal. I did not obey orders and I got tired of his rules, regulations and restrictions so it was important that I go my own way.
I thank God I did that because at long last since the past 25 years; I won the kind of respect I deserved from the man who thought that the direction I took was a wrong move. For the past 25 years, we bonded and I am proud to have had a father like him”.
