Charly Boy releases song ‘Mumu Don Do?’, featuring Oritse Femi
Foremost Nigerian showbiz maestro, singer and activist, Charly Boy has released a hit single ‘Mumu Don Do?’, featuring ace singer and performer, Oritse Femi.
The maverick artiste, whose real name is Charles Oputa, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Saturday that the socially conscious ‘collabo’ was a ‘gift’ to his fans as he marked his 70th birthday on June 19.
According to him, the song is to drive societal change and value re-awakening among Nigerians, especially the youth who are supposed to hold leaders accountable.
The “Nwata Miss” crooner, who released his debut highlife album over three decades ago, said he had decided to use music as his age-long passion to provoke Nigerians towards taking responsibility in nation-building.
He said: “I am giving my fans a birthday present with my song with Oritse Femi, “Mumu Don Do? (MDD)”
“Let them go download it on youtube and listen to it, because I still wonder, whether Nigerians ‘mumu never do.’
“The message is that wishes and prayers alone will not solve our problems, because God will not do for us what he expects us to do for ourselves,” he said.
The “Areafada” further explained that he had decided to work with the “Double Wahala” crooner because of his philosophical style of music that addressed societal ills.
“I have always thought that Nigerian artistes are the best in the world, and that is why as PMAN president I fought so hard for the respect of Nigerian artistes.
