Sexuality: In Charly boy’s words
“My Dear Dewy,
I know the last few days may have been tough for you flowing from my Friday post
“For Parents Only” on my Instagram.
I apologize if my post rubbed you the wrong way, for this I am deeply sorry, my bad.
I was talking to parents trying to get them to understand that they-can only give good advice or put their children on the right paths, but the final forming of a person’s character lies in their own hands.
I came into parenting the way most of us did — knowing nothing but trying to learn everything, becos, who no go no fit know.
The journey of parenthood is an emotional roller-coaster, filled with happiness, sadness, worries, frustration, pride, excitement and much more. Parenting is an amazing adventure.
When people dey yab me say you dey tackle me for social media, I just dey laff.
I dey laff bcos Na so I tackle my papa before I collect my independence. Lion no fit born goat. Never forget that the Oputas are very special people, and in you I see me.
Since Saturday morning I have received thousands of phone calls from parents and young people who feel disconnected with their parents. Their testimonies have been quite insightful.
I was only able to offer a listening ear and soothing words, but I feel taller because our story inspired thousands.
That’s a good thing.
My darling, I promise to allow you tell your story behind your sexuality like I have been able to tell mine. I respect your perspectives and I understand. I brought you all up as Global Kids and not as timid village champions.
Let’s just go back to the friendship we have been working on.
I love you and no one can contest, not even you.
My Charly Girl
