The Charly Boy Ministry of Youth Affairs (CBMOYA), formally called Charly Boy Kiddies Affairs (CBKA), has witnessed drastic transformation with the new standard it has set arising from their effort to resuscitate the dying hope of Nigerian youths in schools. Before the change of name, the organisation had empowered students from across the country with a special focus on primary and junior secondary school pupils and students only, but they have since expanded their scope to include senior secondary schools and other tertiary institutions considered worthy of the foundation’s assistance.
In the September edition of the programme, it was an inspiring and memorable event for The Hampstead Academy which stormed the punk palace in the most electrifying state. The students, who were smartly dressed on their navy blue jackets, got into the punk palace in an exhilarating mood for a once in a life time tour and for their possible interaction with the Area Fada.
The event that began at exactly 10 pm on a bright Friday morning did not experience any dull moment. After the registration, Area Fada officially welcomed the students and as the programme of events reeled on, the coordinator of the Charly Boy Foundation, Miss Chiaka Anosike, in her well articulated speech, presented an extensive detail of the aim of the foundation while at the same time encouraging the students to passionately hold on to their dreams.
“The CBMOYA has a general and specific purpose. However, one of the specifics is to find the most appropriate way of encouraging young people like you. I welcome you all to this gathering.
Simply sit tight and enjoy your afternoon,” Chiaka concluded. Meanwhile, the students showed the organisers of the CBMOYA that they came to the punk palace ready to showcase their skills as the dance competition clearly showed the creativity in them. Different acrobatic moves were displayed by the students. About five of the students are already through to the Charly Boy talent hunt scheduled for March next year.
The quiz competition took a dramatic turn as a 7-year-old Adaeze occupying the CB brain storm seat. After several questions and answers, the little Adaeze emerged winner of the quiz competition, hence the CBMOYA Queen of the Month.
The most memorable of the entire activities was the bike ride. The young lads embarked on a ride with Charlyboy.
