“I don’t drink alcohol and I’m trying to quit smoking” – Charlie Boy


Veteran singer Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charlie Boy, has revealed that he does not drink alcohol.

He also said he has tried to quit smoking but often struggles with addiction.

In a recent interview with actress Iyabo Ojo, the Maverick singer admitted to drinking a little alcoholic wine, but claimed that he is not a habitual drinker.

The 73-year-old said his physical strength was due to genetic factors and lifestyle, noting that his parents and grandparents lived long lives.

he said: “I’ve been lucky enough to develop the habit of always going to the gym and taking care of my physical health. You know, people in the (entertainment) industry make a lot of assumptions about them. But I don’t drink. I’ve never had (alcohol) in my life. However, I do add a little wine sometimes when I feel sociable (lol).

“I’m trying to quit my nicotine (smoking) habit, because it’s really not good for me. I think the longest period I’ve been abstinent was about seven years. I’ve battled it many times. Sometimes I quit, but I keep coming back.”
