Veteran singer and actor Charles Oputa, professionally known as Charly Boy, has shared a near-death experience while battling prostate cancer.
In a post sighted on his page, Charly Boy disclosed that he has been battling with sickness which almost took his life a few days ago.
He shared a video of himself being wheeled out of the theater as he announced that he is being discharged and thanked God for another chance at life.
“Today I am being discharged from the hospital. In my life, I am happy doing this video. I have fought so many battles. And I have won so many battles. But for the past ten days, I have been battling with something very huge.
“But as God would have it, he saved my life and I beat that sucker. I have been fighting my prostrate issues. It’s not a small thing. Not as you are seeing me shining. You will see videos and know I came from the jaws of death. That thing that has killed many people did not kill me.” He said.
Charly Boy expressed gratitude to his family for being with him and also thanked the doctors for their proper treatment.
“I want to thank God for sparing my life. I want to thank my cousins who gave me great support and love. You guys are the best. I want to thank my friends and well-wishers for standing by me. This is the biggest fight ever that I have had in my life.
“Above all, I want to thank the doctor who saw to it. He did a fantastic job. His name is Kingsley Ekwueme. He was the doctor who took care of me and who saw my problem. I want to thank you. You are a great guy.
“As you can see I didn’t travel to London or America. I had my treatment in Nigeria. I am back. Charly Boy no dey finish na. I am not going anywhere soon.” He added.
