Thirty Nine Years After, Charly Boy Marries in Church

Published

on

Maverick Nigerian entertainer and activist, Mr. Charles Oputa, better known as, Charly Boy or Area Fada will walk his long time consort, Lady Diane down the aisle at the chapel of the Sisters of Jesus the Redeemer, Catholic Church , in Gwarimpa, Abuja for formal exchange of marital vows.

The ceremony which holds today, Saturday December 15, will be officiated by the outspoken Catholic clergy, Bishop Mathew Hassan Kukah and will have in attendance family members and close associates of the couple.

Mr. Oputa was first married to Stella at a Catholic Church in Onitsha in 1974. The relationship produced one child.

The Catholic Church observes a strict marital doctrine which demands that couples who contracted a marriage on the church must petition the Catholic Pontiff for an annulment if they wish to opt out of the union.

According to Oputa, “We have been following through with the process of annulment for sometime. My former wife who has since remarried cooperated very well. She had no objection. The reason I put forward for the annulment was that I was underage. My mother actually got the wife for me at the age of 19 because I a little rascally with women. Getting me married at that age was supposed to curb my sexual excesses. “

Incidentally, Mr. Oputa’s 101 year-old mother is once again the reason he is contracting a formal marriage to Lady Diane, who has three children for him.

He explained, “This is not that kind of marriage with fanfare. I am doing it to please my aged mother. She has been pleading that we do the right thing. This is a woman I have been living with for 40 years. We know each other well.

This is about obedience to certain demands of the society. People wonder how I am able to live with one woman all these years. It is not that we do not have misunderstanding. Marriage is successful when you are able to manage your incompatibility. I saw my parents quarrel, reconcile, kiss and hold hands again. These are the values that have guided me my relationship. “

Charly Boy who is 62 years has nine children from different women insists that “Lady Diane is now the mother of all my children. We have 16 grandchildren.”

According to him, he hopes to convince his wife to ride with him in a tricycle to and from the church to underscore the low-key nature of the ceremony.

Miss Congo, Dorcas Kasinde has won the 2018 Miss Africa Beauty Pageant hosted by the Cross River Government.

The contest took place in the early hours of Friday at the Calabar International Conference Centre.

Kasinde, who beat Nigeria’s Chiamaka Nnaemeka and Zambia’s Gladys Kayumba to the second and third positions respectively to clinch the crown, went home with $35,000 and a sport utility vehicle.

She was crowned by the winner of the 2017 edition of the pageant, Miss Gaseangwe Balopi of Botswana.

Earlier, the Governor of Cross River, Prof. Ben Ayade, said it was time for Africans to appreciate themselves.

Ayade said that Africa does need the western media to tell its story, which they always centered on poverty and wars.

” This is a celebration of African beauty, brain and heritage; the world will see what African brain and beauty is all about.

” The judges should come down and look at those things that make a woman truly African; it is not just the skin colour.

“Tunisians and Moroccans are light-skinned but they are Africans,” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that 25 countries participated in the event.

They include Cameroon, Morocco, Tanzania, Togo and Ghana.

Nigerian singers Innocent Idibia (2face) and Tiwatope Savage-Balogun ( Tiwa Savage) entertained the audience.
