Folks, when you are in your teens and early twenties, it is sort of expected that you want to run “wild and free.” However, when you hit your late twenties into mid-thirties what happens? Most likely, you notice the frequency of saying, “it’s my life and I can do whatever I want to do with it,” diminishes significantly. It’s like life slaps you in the face and when you look up, the only thing that comes to mind is, “what do I have to show for all this time? I better get on it so I am not left behind.” Nobody will tell you to “quit with the foolishness or get your act together.”
Presumably, as one gets older i.e. 40s, 50s, there is the presumption that the “wild and free” part is really out of your system. You gotta be mature, be responsible and be cognizance of those behind you watching your footsteps. You hit your 60s, and the foolishness, craziness, “wild and free(ness)” really better be out of your system. However, not all persons roll that way. Some insist on being “wild and free” till they die, whatever that means. One such person is Charly Boy.
For Charly Boy, the search for constant attention is unbelievable. Whether it be politically related (anyone remember the Enough is Enough campaign drama back in 2010?), reality television show (Nigerian Idol and the Python snake anybody?); to kissing and seductively hugging media personality Denrele, you can find Charly Boy right in the midst of it all. Indeed Charly Boy puts the “Boy” in his name to work. It is what it is.
Truthfully, from where I sit, who cares if Charly Boy decides he wants to wear a g-string and run “wild and free” at 61 all over the internet? It might be gross for many but the truth is that the world is big enough to accommodate the really crazy, the not so crazy and the very “normal,” so long as everyone keeps their hands to themselves.
All I want to know is, can Charly Boy just have a better execution of this terrible photoshoot? Creatively and for being an artist, this is an eyesore. Why does shooting nude have to be this crude and tacky?
