Dewy Oupta, the lesbian daughter of Nigerian entertainer and human rights activist, Charly Boy, has slammed her father following his open support for the LGBT community in Nigeria which he made earlier today. According to Dewy his social media show of support is his way of trying to take advantage of the publicity she got after she came out as lesbian and his way of trying to attain fame. She goes on to say he doesn’t care about her, and she went as far as saying he blocked her on social media.

“My mission for creating a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer platform is to provide a safe place for youths in the African community. I strive to create an accepting and welcoming community where everyone is free to express themselves and be loved for who they are. I want a place where individuals such as myself can create authentic friendships and thrive as the person they were born to be.”
Charly Boy’s Daughter, Dewy, however, admitted that it was not easy for her parents when she revealed her sexuality to them: “I can’t pinpoint the exact age I found out about my sexuality, but I was much younger. When I came out to my parents, it took them a while to adjust but my happiness comes first. I don’t feel bad about the negative comments my sexuality post has generated.
I knew Nigerians would always have negative things to say and I was mentally prepared for it. I’m not here to sway anybody’s point of view; I’m here to bring awareness,” she said.
