Controversial musician and self acclaimed Area Fada of the music industry, Charles Emeka Oputa a.k.a. Charly may yet be courting another controversy, as he prepares to visit the Indian temple of Buddha.
The planned visit by the Oguta, Imo state-born son of a retired supreme court judge, is coming at a period when his American sisters and brothers’ in-law are coming to spend the Christmas holiday in Nigeria.
Is he, is running away from responsibilities this writer wondered out loud?
“No. The arrangement has been in place for a while now and as a matter of fact, I have the blessing of my wife and children to travel to India and actualise this dream” he posited.
The development may however come as a rude shock to many followers of the former punk because of his long time association with Bolaji Rosiji, head of the Hare Krishna sect in Nigeria.
“It’s true I was associated with Bolaji Rosiji and his Hare Krishna sect, but I never belong there. I have always been a Buddhist and I’m proud to be one” he told Showtime.
He confirmed to us that “I will be leaving Nigeria at the end of next week and I hope to spend some few weeks at the temple before I move onto other countries.
I’m taking a well-deserved rest from the hustle and bustle of Nigeria. My broda e don tay man dey jungle and its time to move out of the woods” he disclosed.
The former president of PMAN had earlier disclosed the reason why he relocated from Lagos to Abuja identifying frustration as his bane.
“It didn’t make sense any more staying in a place where you are not appreciated. I had to move on. And in the fours years or so that I have spent here, I have achieved all that I couldn’t in the twenty years I spent in Lagos.
Abuja is place where things happen and whatever I’m today has been made possible by people who decided to identify with what I believed in.”
