The Area Fada, Charly Boy Oputa is set to colloborate with Afro-beat sensational act and rapper, Falz the Bad Guy born Folarin Falana.
Charly Boy has managed to remain in the music space for many years. The music maestro released his first album thirty years ago.
In an interview with New Agency of Nigeria, he revealed he is set to release a hit single in collaboration with Falz. He explained that his decision to work with Falz is because of his philosophically ripe kind of music, the type that challenges societal abnormalities.
Charlie Boy has always managed to be on the media space for his activism and his frequent call for societal revamp. The “Nwata Miss” Crooner hinted that the song is a advocacy project targeted at bringing out positive stories from our society.
“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. 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, the Arts, especially music, have been used to inspire people and change narratives towards a better society.
“I did not go into music for money, but for the passion of it, and this time I am using it to awake the consciousness of all Nigerians towards building the country they desire.
“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
“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 in their manifesto, and as required by the constitution,” he said.
He however, enjoined Nigerian singers to look beyond monetary gains in the industry and focus on value oriented projects that will be beneficial to the society.
