Maverick singer Charles Oputa, often known as Charly Boy, has referred to his late father, Justice Chukwudifu Oputa, as the Socrates of Nigerian Supreme Court.

Charly Boy made the comment in honour of Justice Oputa’s 10-year anniversary.

The renowned entertainer recalls being in rivalry with his late father in his early days.

Charly Boy posted on X: “It’s been ten years since the Socrates of the Nigerian Supreme Court died.

“He was a very exceptional man, the driving force behind the harmony we still enjoy in our large family today.

“Here’s to a man who was courageous enough to raise a son like Charlyboy.

As a Father he was a very special man. He ran his household like a love court house. On the bench he was the Socrates, a judges judge. His judgments were so profound.

“In the beginning of building the brand “Charlyboy” little did I know that I was in a frantic competition against my own father.

“Everyone never stopped reminding me of how special he was as if I wasn’t carved out to be outstanding.

“I learnt from him, how to keep one’s family together, how to live a simple life, the art of contentment and how to stay humble.

“Today we remember you and all that you stood for. Continue to rest in peace my dearest father. Thanks for believing in my dream.”
