Veteran Nigerian singer, Chukwuemeka Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy has cleared the air on his religion and spiritual state of mind.

The singer who took to his verified Twitter page to ask that his fans pray for me revealed he’s more spiritual than religious but often times people mistake him for what he’s not.

According to him, many thinks he’s a native doctor because he sleeps in a coffin. Speaking further, he stated that he’s a theist, who is expanding on Christ narrative.

In his words,


A few people know dat am more Spiritual dan Religious. Some even think say I be correct native doctor as I dey sleep for coffin Coffin sometimes.

I go just dey laff when sm go ask me if I believe in God.

Naija too like drama. As much as I have transversed so many religious teachings, I believe am a spiritual being.

I have my own relationship with a being dat I consider to be everywhere. All and everything. I don’t need a church, a synagogue or a mosque.

I don’t need to kneel down or stand up or be Born again, again. I am not denying Christ by not being a Christian. I am a Theist, expanding on Christ narrative”.
