Veteran singer, Charles Oputa a.k.a Charly Boy, in a recent Instagram post, eulogised his late father, Justice Chukwudifu Oputa, in celebration of Father’s Day today, 18th June.
After sharing the photo of himself and dad, Charly Boy wrote:
‘‘My dearest friend,
”It’s been 3yrs since you left, and 7months since I had the last chance when we talked.
”Nothing can compete with the friendship we shared and the bounding that grew so strong, before your exit. I will forever remain grateful for your regimented training, the value and principles you shoved down my throat. Even your love for Mum had a great impart on me.
”You reawakened in me a deeper meaning to life, the realisation of my purpose on earth. Most importantly, I learnt the value of contentment and humility from you my Guru.
”Not a lot of us are blessed with parents who make strong impact in our lives and shape our mindset. For this I am grateful to God. I feel blessed.
”Oh yes!!!! Sometimes noble fathers have noble children because rarely does an apple fall too far from its tree. Thank you Dad.
”Happy Fathers Day.”
