Why I Decided Being A Lesbian—Charly Boy’s Daughter

It went viral on social media when daughter of Nigerian artiste, Charles Oputa, aka Charly Boy decided sharing her status as a lesbian.
Fondly called Dewy, the young woman who formed a platform for homosexuals and lesbians, shared a video of herself and partner was rebuked on social media that her father intervened and commended her for revealing what makes her happy.
He wrote, “For Those going Gagas over my Princess Dewy’s post. Hear This.
The best thing about being true to yourself is that nobody can insult you by telling you what you have just told them.
Acceptance has to come from,
Within. I am blessed with beautiful Children and grand children. Love ❤️ em All. Thank you God.”

The daughter also decided to explain her stance on lesbianism. Dewy said,
“My mission for creating a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer platform is to provide a safe place for youths in the African community. I strive to create an accepting and welcoming community where everyone is free to express themselves and be loved for who they are. I want a place where individuals such as myself can create authentic friendships and thrive as the person they were born to be.” Dewy, however, admitted that it was not easy for her parents when she revealed her sexuality to them. “I can’t pinpoint the exact age I found out about my sexuality, but I was much younger. When I came out to my parents, it took them a while to adjust but my happiness comes first. I don’t feel bad about the negative comments my sexuality post has generated. I knew Nigerians would always have negative things to say and I was mentally prepared for it. I’m not here to sway anybody’s point of view; I’m here to bring awareness
,”

On whether she nurses any fear about coming to Nigeria considering that there is an anti-gay law in place in the country, the stylist and property management practitioner said, “To be honest, I do not have any fears. I think there are far more critical issues that are yet to be resolved. So, why should my sexual orientation affect the next man? Nigerians that have a problem with the LGBTQ community need to mind their business and focus on the critical life and death situation at hand. Love has never killed the next man.”
