Why Soyinka should no longer be taken seriously – Charly Boy

 Maverick singer Charly Boy has urged Nigerians not to take Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, seriously.


According to him, Soyinka, who turns 90 in a few days, might be suffering from brain deterioration due to ageing.


He claimed this could be the reason for his rhetorics and actions in recent times.


The 73-year-old singer said Nigerians only have to worry about how Soyinka’s family and close friends cannot ward off agents of desperate politicians who are exploiting the Nobel laureate’s “medical situation” to their advantage.


On his Instagram page, Charly Boy wrote: “Prof. Wole Soyinka is aged over 80yrs, even tending towards 90yrs. For his age, some level of brain deterioration is not unexpected. His rhetorics and actions in recent times is suggestive of deteriorating brain desease, and as such he shouldn’t be taken too seriously.


“What we shld be worried about as well-meaning Nigerians, is how his family and close friends can’t ward off agents of desperate politicians who are bent on exploiting his medical situation to their advantage, no matter how low it sinks the once respected Nobel laureate.”
