Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, revealed that he used to rob banks before the infamous 419 scam became widespread in Nigeria.
He made this confession when he was asked about the most terrible thing he had ever done.
He said, “I used to be a thief. I was scamming banks. Even before una begin to hear of 419, I don do small.”
The ex-PMAN president, however, refused to give more details.
The singer, who is now an actor did those illegal things overseas where he had no parental control. He also admitted that he was foolish and silly.
“Yes, of course. We do not want to get into the how. I just told you the worst thing I have done.
“It was not in Nigeria o, I could only do this thing because I was away from my parents’ prying eyes. I had nobody to answer to and I wanted to get my own. Though that was not the right way and I don’t advocate that people should… I was just stupid and dumb,” he added.
