Charles Oputa, the activist fondly called Charly Boy, has opened up on his battle with prostate cancer.


The ace musician took to his social media pages to share the experience that he said: “almost took my life”.

In the video shared from the hospital bed, the singer appreciated God for saving his life from what he called the “jaws of death.”

“Today I am being discharged from the hospital. In my life, I am happy doing this video. I have fought so many battles. And I have won so many battles. But for the past ten days, I have been battling with something very huge,” he said.


“But as God would have it, he saved my life and I beat that sucker. I have been fighting my prostrate issues. It’s not a small thing. Not as you are seeing me shining. You will see videos and know I came from the jaws of death. That thing that has killed many people did not kill me.”

He also appreciated his family members and the medical practitioner who was in charge of his treatment.

“I want to thank God for sparing my life. I want to thank my cousins who gave me great support and love. You guys are the best. I want to thank my friends and well-wishers for standing by me. This is the biggest fight ever that I have had in my life,” he added.


“Above all, I want to thank the doctor who saw to it. He did a fantastic job. His name is Kingsley Ekwueme. He was the doctor who took care of me and who saw my problem. I want to thank you. You are a great guy.

“As you can see I didn’t travel to London or America. I had my treatment in Nigeria. I am back. Charly Boy no dey finish na. I am not going anywhere soon.”
