"I Rejected A Job At A Major Oil Company To Pursue Music"

In a recent interview with The Nation, Charly Boy reveled that he was offered a job with a major oil company in the 1980s after his undergraduate studies but he declined the offer to pursue his passion for music.

He said:

returned to the country in the early eighties, after my studies in the United States where I bagged a degree in Mass Communications, to a job with the Public Relations department of a major oil company in the country. Unfortunately, I was not interested in a nine-to-five job, so I declined the offer. My father was livid, and could not fathom why on earth I would choose to throw my life away by pursuing a career in music. No one in my family was involved in entertainment.

My father was based in Lagos at the time, leaving our Oguta home vacant, so I happily took up residence there as I would not have to pay rent. I thereafter set up a production studio. Unfortunately, business was not very buoyant as Oguta is out of the way to major Eastern Nigerian towns.
