How far is too far?

By Lolade Sowoolu

When I first came across the mouth to mouth picture, I was sure it had been photoshopped. But seeing the rest of the collection, my indifference turned to concern. Now, I am made to understand that the pictures were purposely conceived and painstakingly achieved in a professional photo shoot that should portray the subjects’ intention. And what would that (the intention) be? Simple, to sell a magazine!

Area father or grand father Charly Boy also known as CB has always been controversial for his perspective to life. He’s not the average thinking man. Red carpet host Denrele on the other hand, was at one time alleged to be gay. He refuted the report and made public his girlfriend at that time.

Obviously belonging to different generations the ‘couple’ who are thirty years apart in age, share similar ideas as touching their outlook to life. The two unapologetic weird beings known for extremism have blazed trails and are role models for many youths.

However dabbling into matters that bother on sexuality is going a bit too far especially for culturally sensitive Nigeria. I’m almost sure the two men (the young and the old) don’t mind but isn’t this a little taking extremism or is it creativity too far? The shoot we are told, was undertaken to grace the pages of CB’s magazine called ‘Charly Boy’. We wish you luck, CB.
