Nigerian Singer, Charles Oputa, popularly called Charly Boy has slammed Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka, over his recent remarks on ‘OBIdients’, supporters of the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
On Friday, Soyinka labelled Obedient as one of the most repulsive concoctions he has witnessed in any political arena.
The Octogenarian had criticized an attempt made by the vice-presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Datti Baba-Ahmed, to dictate to the Supreme Court regarding the party’s suit challenging the presidential election as unacceptable.
In a post via Instagram on Saturday, Charly Boy averred he has lost respect for Soyinka stating the Nobel Laureate will never be like Chinua Achebe.
According to him, Soyinka has reduced himself to a little boy for criminal politicians, adding it is a big shame.
He said: “The kind respect I had for dis man, was almost the kind of respect I had for my stainless father, The Socrates of the Supreme Court.
“It has finally dawned on me that Soyinka can never be the man Chinua Achebe was.
“Look at a man many Nigerians put on such high pedestal reducing himself to a boyiboyi for criminal politicians. What a f..king big shame”
