Nigerian songwriter and musician, Charly Boy, has opened up

on why he lies in a casket and makes such dealings viral.

After photos of him in a coffin went viral, rumors of ritual

dealings have been attributed to the singer but in

a latest interview, he has clarified such reports.

Charly Boy told Vanguard that he does not sleep in the casket,

but on his bed which he says is big and comfy.“I only lay in my

casket when I do my meditation because it helps me to be focused,

it tells me more about the imminence of death. My casket is a reminder.

It wakes me up from slumber. It tells me, guy, you have got little

or no time left, wake up, be creative and work,” he said.

Updated with some comments of Nigerians, Charly Boy said he

is unperturbed, adding, “I know a good number of us are ill-informed

about quite a number of things. I think it is more of what the casket

represents that shocks my people and they start reading meanings

into it, depending on their level of understanding.”

He educated that a coffin is just a product of wood, similar

to sofas which everyone makes use of.

He added: “But one question is, what if the same wood that was used

to build the casket was used to make a sofa chair? Maybe, all the

hullabaloo about me sitting on a chair wouldn’t have been there in

the first place? So when people vocalize their disapproval of my

message via the image of a casket, I understand that they do that

from a position of fear – what the casket represents; death.

“Take a critical look at my image inside the coffin, it speaks volume.

I always lay in my casket with my cap, glasses, shoes on. I’m always

well dressed. Yes, it is always done intentionally to tell us that your

glory disappears with all the wealth you must have

acquired the very day you go to that coffin.

“Your glory, cap, vision, glasses, struggle, shoes go with you.

The only thing left of you is your history and your legacy.

The crux of the message is to leave a legacy,

so we can live forever, not in the physical, but in people’s memories.

As for me, I will live forever. You dey vex???”
