Charly Boy Oputa, also known as the “Area Fada” and the self-proclaimed president of frustrated Nigerians, has recently shared a video of himself before, during, and after undergoing surgery to alleviate his prostate cancer.
The surgery was performed last week in a hospital in Lagos, but the exact location remains undisclosed.
The reason for sharing the video was to encourage men to speak up about their prostate health issues and not suffer in silence.
Throughout the video, Oputa remained positive, fearless, and candid, just as he has always been.
He spoke candidly about his determination to defeat the ailment, which is known to be one of the leading causes of death among black men, with God’s special grace.
In a chat with FRED IWENJORA yesterday after being wheeled out of the theatre, Oputa gave a thumbs up and victory sign adding that “it was a serious procedure made so simple by my doctor who was full of encouragement before and after the surgery”.
According to him, this is not the first battle I have fought and won and I will win this one by God’s grace”.
He encouraged men to face the scourge of prostate cancer squarely by testing and seeking remedy earlier because early detection guarantees success in its treatment.
In his words “when I broke the news of my managing prostate cancer to you, I told you I won’t go down without a fight. I hereby reiterate that statement.
“I urge men to share their medical conditions with friends and family so as not to die in silence.
“A problem shared is half solved. It is for this reason that I am discussing my health matters publicly so that my fellow men will learn from my experience. My doctor is very happy with my progress so far during and after the surgery.”

I have fought one too many battles in my short life.
Most of the times,
“Prostate Cancer cannot cripple love, it cannot shatter hope, it cannot conquer dis spirit.”
