Charles Oputa is well-known for his notorious and controversial personality. His wife, Diane Duchess Oputa, opens up on the challenges she has faced so far in their marriage and how they have been able to pull through for 38-years. In a recent interview with Babalola Oshogbiye, the wife of the veteran musician, also revealed that Charly Boy is a proper African man and has several children outside their marriage.
“In the beginning it was the women, my gosh! Women everywhere. Charles is a charmer. He had seven kids from his away matches and the women he married that didn’t work out, before we got married. But as the years rolled by I found ways of calming him down and curing my high blood pressure.”
“I later found out that the women were more for his hypes and pons, like the charly’s virgins. One thing I knew from the beginning was that my husband always wanted to be a family man, after all he grew up seeing both parents together for sixty something years before papa passed on.”
“Much later the women thing totally fizzled out. In the beginning I wasn’t too sure how to deal with all his children from different women, but trust Charles he knows how to put his family together. That’s how I overnight became a mother of 9 children plus my last three.”
“The only thing that he still does that pisses me off till tomorrow is his silence, when he is angry about something. He will lock himself in his room and may not talk to me for days. I can’t deal with that because we talk all the time: our communication is on point. He always says he doesn’t want to say the wrong things when he is angry. Otherwise, Charles is the best thing to happen to me and I thank God for that.”
When asked if her trust for him was ever shaken, she said, Yes. She said in the first eight years of their marriage she had too many drama to contend with.
It wasn’t easy but with maturity and understanding she began to see things for what they really were and not for what it looked like. According to Mrs. Oputa, experience has thought her how to separate the boy “Charly” from her man “Charles.”
She also said that Charly boy is an incorrigible botton pusher that will never stop and that “her man” Charles is also an incorrigible introvert and that’s who she married. She also acknowledged that Mr. Oputa is not good at lying and a few times has reported himself to her.
From her statements, Diane didn’t sound unfulfilled in her marriage. She says fulfilment is guaranteed when a spouse is supportive, understanding and sensitive to ones feelings and most importantly, when he is always looking for creative ways to keep the fire burning. Every couple needs that approach to have a healthy relationship and that was similar to what Charley Boy was referring to in his open advise to Tiwa Savage following her separation with Teebillz.
