Charly Boy picks sides as he compares Prof. Wole Soyinka to the late Chinua Achebe

Veteran entertainer, Charles Oputa aka Charley Boy has brought a swipe at Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka.

Soyinka has been making the headlines lately, making comments about National importance, and has criticised followers of Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi popularly known as Obidients.

In an article shared on his Instagram page, CharleyBoy said the respect he’d for Soyinka was almost the type he’d for his father, the late Justice C. A Oputa, who was simply called the Socrates of the Supreme Court.

He explained it has dawned on him that Soyinka cannot be the person the late Nigerian novelist, Chinua Achebe, was.

Charley Boy added that the Nobel laureate who many Nigerians placed on a top pedestal has ‘’ reduced himself to a boyiboyi for criminal politicians”;

‘’The kin respect I had for dis man, was almost the kind of respect I had for the late Justice C.A.Oputa, The Socrates of the Supreme Court.

It has finally dawned on me that Soyinka can never be the man Chinua Achebe was.

The kogi is not ordinary, he should be very measured anytime he makes a public statement.

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”
