Singer and social crusader, Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa, aka Charly Boy, is one blunt entertainer that has been able to talk his calls to any door step of both the mighty and weak without fear as he still maintains that he is a man for the masses.
Charly Boy wondering what is really happening that the rate of broken homes is becoming rampant these days in the country decided to praise the strength of single mothers who strive hard to care for their children.
He wrote thus;
Hailing to all single mothers out there, who are keeping it tight regardless of the fight? Wherever you maybe, I know what you’re going through, as your hash reality remains so true.Yea! I see you. Strong, black woman. Maximum Respect, after all what else should I expect. I see your pain through your strength. Standing tall while your back bends. Carrying burdens not meant for you while playing roles that’s meant for two. Suffering, yet smiling and hiding that storm that rages within.
Now, let me tell you something. The fact is. Being a single Mum is learning about strengths you didn’t know you have and dealing with fears you hardly know existed.
Hey woman, yes you. I see you striding like an African lioness making that hunt for the gain of your seeds constrained by your feeble being yet attaining more than you ever thought. It will never be in vain that struggle that you so boldly exhibit.
The virtues you have ingrained shall dry your tears tomorrow. Maintain your fight to love, care protect and provide for that seed which you and your former partner planted, but left only you to water.
To all you women playing the father figure for men who have failed to do that which is their God given responsibility, I salute you. To the hand that rocks the cradle, that superwoman with a noble cause, I salute you, I doff my hat for all single Mums, because your pain has made you change. The change has made you grow and my God, see how your growth has made you strong.
