Charley Boy, aka Area Fada, has apologized to his daughter, Dewy Oputa after their recent spat over her homosexual choice.
After Dewy had gone public saying she is a lesbian, Charly Boy had said that he was proud having her as a daughter despite her choice.
However, Dewy Oputa hit back, stating that she was estranged from her father who she said doesn’t pick her calls and she was rendered homeless after she publicized her sexuality.
She accused her dad of using her to chase clout as father of the year online, while caring nothing about her in real life.
In his apology, he recounted how he also shared acrimony with his late dad, Justice Oputa.
“My Dear Dewy,
“I know the last few days may have been tough for you flowing from my Friday post “For Parents Only” on my Instagram.
“I apologize if my post rubbed you the wrong way, for this I am deeply sorry, my bad. Forgive me.
“But Honestly, I was talking to parents trying to get them to understand that they-can only give good advice or put their children on the right paths, but the final forming of a person’s character lies in their own hands.
“I came into parenting the way most of us did — knowing nothing but trying to learn everything, becos, who no go no fit know.
“The journey of parenthood is an emotional roller-coaster, filled with happiness, sadness, worries, frustration, pride, excitement and much more. Parenting is an amazing adventure.
“When people dey yab me say you dey tackle me for social media, I just dey laff. I dey laff because Na so I tackle my papa before I collect my independence. Lion no fit born goat. Never forget that the Oputa’s are very special people, and in you I see me.
“Since Saturday morning I have received thousands of phone calls from parents and young people who feel disconnected with their parents. Their testimony has been quite insightful.
“I was only able to offer a listening ear and soothing words, but I feel taller because our story inspired thousands. That’s a good thing.
“My darling, I promise to allow you tell your story like I have been able to tell mine. I respect your perspectives and I understand. I brought you all up as Global Kids and not as timid village champions.
“Let’s just go back to the friendship we have been working on. I love you and no one can contest, not even you.
My Charly Girl
