Veteran Nigerian entertainer Charles Oputa popularly known as Charly Boy, has slammed Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka over his recent remarks on the supporters of Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi.
Recall that on Friday, Sonyika had criticized Obi supporters for attacking his personality. He described them as ‘Fascists’.
Responding reacting to Soyinka’s remarks, Charly Boy said ‘ Soyinka has reduced himself to criminal politicians’
The ‘Area Father’ made the assertion in a tweet on Saturday.
“The kin (kind) respect I had for dis (this) man, was almost the kind of respect I had for my stainless father, The Socrates of the Supreme Court. It has finally dawned on me that Soyinka can never be the man Chinua Achebe was,” he tweeted.
“Look at a man many Nigerians put on such high pedestal reducing himself to a boyiboyi for criminal politicians. What a f..king big shame,” he added.
