Charly Boy is well known as one who loves to 'fight' for people and he does not care if he is seen as the troublemaker.

This time around, it is Area Fada's sexuality that is being questioned by his fans after he recently came to the defense of  gays and lesbians in Nigeria.

After the backlash from fans and critics online, Charly Boy’s response to the criticism is a strong message.

He posted on Instagram:

Kai, I know for many Nigerians their mumu never Do. Sometimes we dey reason like say we no get brain.

Any wonder we are still prehistoric, myopic and lack depth.

As I vocalised my thoughts on Gays and Lesbians, come see stone trowing, like say dem no know say Na the stones dem trow me I take build house.

Mumu people.

So make I ask dem, As I fight for okada people because our useless government wan kill their business, does that make me an okada rider?

I been fighting for the right of the poor common man, does that mean I am poor and hungry?

I fought against the abuse of drugs by youths, does that make me a drug addict.

Now that I wan speak up for some young gay people who are committing suicide because they are not only confused about their sexually, the environment/stereotyping has made their lives miserable.

And some mumu people are calling me Gay. Obviously dem mumu never do.
