Charlie Oputa, singer and television presenter better know as Charly Boy, says he would be making his comeback into the music scene with a collaborative project featuring Falz.
The 68-year-old showbiz mogul, who released his debut high-life album more than 30 years ago, said this in an interview with NAN on Tuesday.
The “Nwata Miss” crooner said he has decided to work with Falz because of his philosophical style of music that addresses leadership issues and societal ills.
“Falz is a young man that I so much believe in his music and passion towards positive change in all aspects of our society, and we share similar thoughts,” he said.
“We are working on something together and it will sure stir positive change in our lives as Nigerians.”
The former president of Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN) said that he decided to use music as a tool to inspire ordinary Nigerians, especially youths, towards holding leaders accountable.
He explained that he was leading an advocacy and enlightenment campaign ‘Na we be Government” and decided to go back to music, his age-long passion, to call citizens to participate in nation building.
“All over the world, art, especially music, has been used to inspire people and change narratives towards a better society. I did not go into music for money but for the passion,” he said.
“A lot of Nigerians have given up on their country because of bad leadership over the years, and do not believe they have a say in the affairs of their country. I am using it to awake the consciousness Nigerians to build the country they desire.
“It is time they are reminded that power truly belongs to them and there is a social contract between them and elected political leaders. Citizens will do their part and political leaders should also fulfill their obligations as promised.”
