In a post on Sunday night, the musician said his earlier post was misinterpreted and blasted news media that ran it for engaging in “cheap, stupid sensationalism.

“Dem wan take me to do scapegoat? How “E dey Pain Me” turn into a call for a coup. Der fathers,” he wrote on the social media platform X, hitherto known as Twitter.

Earlier on Sunday, Charly Boy expressed pain that God is not heeding his prayer in Nigeria as He has done in Gabon, Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso, where soldiers had staged coups to overthrow the elected governments.

Most news platforms interpreted the post to mean the 73-year-old singer was advocating for a coup in Nigeria.
