Nigerian singer/activist, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, has taken to Twitter to disclose that his late father, Chukwudifu Oputa, changed his way of life after he became a judge.
According to the veteran, in the 1960s, when his father was simply a successful lawyer in Port Harcourt, he was always seen in different social gatherings celebrating.
