If you watch the video, as soon as I saw what the child was doing, I took her off stage.”
Charly also sought to address the persons leaving hateful comments on his Instagram account saying they only dwell in negativity as no one lauded him for hosting two back to school treats in his parish.
He says he’ll deleting the video however added that artists are always used as the scapegoat in these situations when there’s a bigger issue at hand because he didn’t teach her these adult moves.
