Charly Boy apologises to daughter for speaking about her sexuality again
Singer and activist, Charly Boy has apologised to his daughter, Dewy for putting up a post on social media, where he explained how he felt when she told him that she was a lesbian, few years ago.
In her reaction to the post, Dewy condemned her dad for using her life as nothing but content. She added that she just couldn’t wrap her head around his hypocrisy. “All this for a drop of clout, attention and praise from strangers just to feed your ego.” She wrote.
Charly Boy, in a long post on Instagram has however apologised to her as the post seem to have rubbed off on her the wrong way.
He explained that he put up the post was actually addressed to parents to try 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.
He promised to allow her tell her story like he has been able to tell his.
Here is his post:
“My Dear Dewy,
I know the last few days may have been tough for you following 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.
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 bcos 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 been working on.
I love you and no one can contest, not even you.
My Charly Girl
