"I am grateful for the experience of having a lesbian child" - Charly Boy

Nigerian controversial singer and media presenter Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa, a.k.a Charly Boy has expressed delight in the experience of having a gay child.

The popular entertainer recently took to his social media pages to narrate his experience when his last daughter Dewy first informed him about her sexuality.

According to Charly Boy, the news was initially shocking to him, he felt in his mind that he hasn't done enough as a parent to set his child on the right path, but he was calm and composed throughout the conversation.

"When my child told me she is gay, a lesbian, I experienced a range of emotions, during dat phone conversation," he wrote on Instagram.

"So many things went through my mind, one of them included self-blame...However, I kept pinching myself to calm down because I didn’t want my baby to shy away from me or for us to have a strained relationship. I loved my baby far too much."

After giving deeper thought on the situation, 'The Area Fada' as he's fondly called said he discovered a better way to deal with it, and that he's grateful for such experience.

He said:

"As a matter of fact, I now look back and find that I am grateful for the experience of having a gay or lesbian child.

"Nothing can come between me and any of my beautiful children. It is stupid to even think that having a gay child means that parents have failed. That’s some pedestrian thinking." Read more via his Instagram page.
