Charles Oputa, a musician and activist better known as Charly Boy, has urged Nigerians to do away with the attitude of indifference in 2018.


Charly Boy, who championed the #OurMumuDonDo movement in 2017, said Nigerians “must [be] gallant this 2018 before water carry us”.

In a video post on Instagram, he lamented that many were “starving, dying of hunger, frustrated and forgotten” yet continue to endure and forge ahead.

“See how they have turned us to slaves in our father’s house,” he said while sounding a note of warning that: “Henceforth, make una gallant, make una receive sense. We no go take this I don’t care behaviour. Mumu time is over.”


We must gallant this 2018, Before water carry us.

In a separate post, Charly Boy wrote in part: “The common enemy of the Nigerian people [are] the politicians, the men of God, the Imams and a docile populace.

“Those who promote the narrative of destructive engagement are the same people who are feeding off the problems of an unstable nation.

“Political leadership in the military, national assembly; Nigerian judiciary, Nigerian executive, criminal political bankers, demonic political contractors, intolerant Imams and 419 men of God are the common enemy of the people and have suceeded in messing our country for decades because the masses have been hypnotised, brainwashed, misled and misinformed.

“Now we fight; now we wake up and now we form alliances that can challenge the tradition of deceptive engagement; the enemies of the people and the mind that is misinformed.


“In fighting these demons, we will be confronted by a populace who will do anything to remain bondage, but we must not be worried, we must not be tired and afraid, we must not give up or give in and we must not let the enemies weaken our spirit or resolve.”
