According to his manager Doris Udensi, the movie is slated for release on Sunday, 20 September 2021.

“This musical film drops on all TV, radio stations, and YouTube. It will also be available on all music platforms from 20 September.

“This film was directed by the legendary Akin Alabi, choreographed by the one and only Dr Kaffy, and costumes were designed by Modela.

“The single puts its spotlight on the position of Charlyboy as the king and pioneer of many positive changes that have taken place in the last 22 years in the entertainment space.

The singer made his debut in Nollywood when he featured in the Netflix original series King of Boys: The Return of the king, where he played the character of Odudubariba.

Speaking with The Sun, Charly Boy said of Odudubariba, his character in the series, means butterfly in Igbo and represents his spiritual essence.

He revealed that the first name Kemi Adetiba chose for his character didn’t fit his personality.

When Kemi Adetiba, the producer, contacted me for a role in the movie, I was not sure of the name I would adopt. I asked her what name would I be called in the movie, and she said ‘Mr. Gbadamosi’, but this didn’t go down well with me. I felt the name didn’t fit my personality; it’s too flat and ordinary,” Oputa revealed.

He then asked if he could come up with another name for the character, and Adetiba said, “yes”. He then came up with ‘Charly Boy’, but that didn’t fly with the producer as well. Later, he suggested ‘Odudubariba’, and it was accepted.
