Stop comparing my age with Tinubu’s - Charly Boy begs fans

Musician and social activist, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, has appealed to his fans on social media to stop comparing his age with that of All Progressives Congress chieftain, Bola Tinubu.

Tinubu, a former Lagos State governor, clocked 69 on Monday with a colloquium celebrated in his honour in Kano State.

On the other hand, the Area Fada and son of respected jurist, Chukwudifu Oputa will clock 71 in June.

Several photos of Charly Boy and Tinubu also known as the Jagaban have since surfaced online with many comparing the looks of the two. Many fans have also argued that Charly Boy looked younger and youthful than Jagaban.

However, in a string of tweets on Tuesday, the Area Fada wondered how folks compared his age with that of Tinubu on the APC stalwart’s birthday every year.

“If we even compare our titles, Area Fada and Jagaban, which of them large pass, no be fada born all the pikins?” Charly Boy asked in pidgin, adding, “Abeg, make Nigerians stop all this nonsense”.

Area Fada, however, congratulated Tinubu on his 69th birthday.
