Charly Boy, also known as Area Fada, challenged Nigerian youths to take their destiny into their hands and set their own standards.
Eccentric Nigerian celebrity, Charly Boy, proposed his philosophy to Nigerian youths while speaking in commemoration of the 55th anniversary of Nigeria’s Independence.
Charly Boy, also known as Area Fada, said that Nigerian youths reflected the economic and political situation of the country.
It is now 55 years since we gained independence as a nation. My serious concern is the youth who are said to be the future leaders. They are yet to see life with the attitude of true independence.
They still look on government, their parents and Nigeria for everything and the change they so much desire cannot come that way.
Why can’t they look inward, take their future in their hands through hard work and personal development?
The outlandish Charly Boy exulted Nigerian youths to embrace creativity, hard work and independence.
My advice for every Nigerian youth is to imbibe the ‘Charlie Boy philosophy’ of self-dependence.
It is therapeutic for me to share a little bit of my experience with the youth, not just as Charlie Boy, but as a friend, a big brother and a mentor.
It had been a very bumpy ride to my present location and the success attained so far.
Many people think that as a son of a former Justice, I did not struggle for myself, but it is not true. The only thing my father gave me was good education.’
Charly Boy’s philosophy which is similar to the existentialist school of thought prevalent in the western world, challenged youths to take their destiny into their hands and set their own standards.
