Maverick entertainer, Charles Oputa aka Charly Boy has revealed that he once predicted that a Nigerian will win a Grammy Award which has now come to pass with the recent wins by Burna Boy and Wizkid.

The former President of the Performing Musicians’ Association of Nigeria (PMAN) who revealed this in an interview said that he thanks God that his prediction has been fulfilled in his lifetime.

The 70-year-old grandfather also said in the interview that he predicted that Nigerian songs would go global and our artistes would become unstoppable adding that he had so much faith in our artistes.

He said; “Nineteen years ago, there was no Burna Boy. But, I said people should watch out because Nigerians would begin to win Grammy Awards. I thank God my prediction has been fulfilled in my lifetime. I also predicted that Nigerian songs would go global and our artists would become unstoppable. I had so much faith in our artists. I made those predictions when I was the president of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria.  At that time, Nigerians hardly played Nigerian music. But, I kicked against it because talented artists had begun to spring up.

“I am so elated. It is a good thing for a 29-year-old Nigerian artiste to attain this feat. To see a young man doing great and getting global recognition is so exhilarating. Thankfully, it is not just Burna Boy. Many artistes and other Nigerians in Diaspora are also breaking records in all facets of life. What more could I ask for, especially since we have been governed by scavengers all these years. We have also been living under unhealthy conditions,” Charly Boy added.
