Charly Boy reveals he has prostate cancer


Charly Boy aka Areafada subtly reveals he has prostate cancer and encourages black men to go for screening.

The 76-year-old showman and activist said he will not go down with a fight;

” what do you want to hear? What do you want me to tell you? Do you want to hear that I have prostate cancer or that I don’t have it. So I have it and am not going down without a fight. This will not cramp my style so biko don’t feel sorry for me. Life happens. My life has been one big fight. Fight for my independence, fighting not to let anyone kill my dreams, fighting for the underdogs and the masses who even sometimes fight me back. So am used to hard life, what can I say?

Continuing, he explained: “Well, let me warn you: one out of four black men in the world today may likely have prostate cancer or enlargement or already have it. And as you know, these men are two times more likely to die from it. Nevertheless, there’s a 96% survival rate if it is screened and detected early. I feel concerned for black men like me. This is why I joined and promoted the prostate cancer awareness initiative by Dozy Mmobuosi Foundation in which over 1000 men were screened because early detection is key to survival. “

“Cancer no fear me, I am beating this, watch me.

I believe you sir and I am praying for you. You are stronger than most men. Keep up the good fight and stay strong.

Love to hear from you
