My mother wanted a quiet burial, I will give her a carnival – Charly Boy
Charly Boy has stated that his mothet who passed away few days ago wanted a quiet burial but he would be doing otherwise by giving her a carnival like burial.
Charly Boy announced her death on social media on Thursday and revealed that he heard she died while he was away from the country.
In a chat with Saturday Beats, he said, “My mother died at 102. I had been out of the country. I spoke with her three days ago before her demise, but we thank God. Her death is a celebration because she lived to a ripe old age. She died in my house— my wife, daughter and granddaughter were all there.”
Charly Boy also stated that he would miss his mother for the special moment they shared together.
“I’ll miss our chats and videos— my mom was a very hip hop person. She always wanted to know about what people were saying about our videos. She also liked to talk about our old times and my rascally ways, among several other things. Sometimes, choristers would come to the house to serenade her. And I often took her to watch comedy shows in Abuja. She was the go-to person for me. It’s not easy to give birth to someone like Charly Boy. She was really a great woman, and we had very loving moments. I can say she died happily. She passed on in her sleep and certainly lived a good life,” he said.
He added that his personality would not allow him hold a quiet burial in fulfillment of his mother’s wish. He stated, “For the burial, my mum said she wanted a very simple ceremony. She said I should keep it peaceful, but Charly Boy does not do simple things. She lived a good life and did all that she wanted to do. My love for humanity and humility came from her. The burial will be in December because I need to hustle. It’s going to be a big celebration and carnival.”
