On the latest episode of Rubbin’ Minds conversation with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, comedian Bovi Ugboma sat with the TV host, to discuss about his career in comedy, Nollywood- his new movie “My Village People“, about how his friendship with colleague AY Makun went sour and a lot more.

When asked how his relationship with fellow comedian AY Makun went sour, Bovi revealed,

“I think we just grew apart. I like to do my own thing my own way and if your style is different from my style we just grow apart basically but we cool. When I see him I say, ‘What’s up!” he said.

Ebuka asked the comedian to clarify the belief in some areas that comedians in Nigeria aren’t actually united.

He said: ”I don’t know…personally I don’t think everybody can like each other but one thing I know is they don’t necessarily hate each other. It is a tricky situation. As regards the shows, in the beginning, I use to do everybody’s show but now I want to do it the way it is internationally accepted.”

On how touring for stand up comedy has changed in recent times, Bovi says,

“different cities are opening up in the world now, but in Nigeria for example, we can’t do much because I like my full house. So I’m not about to do a show for a restricted number of people because comedy is so intimate, you need to actually bring people together to connect. So personally, until everything opens up again, I don’t think I’m going back.”

Among other things, the father of three discussed about his family and his #EndSARS inspired shirt he wore hosting Headies Awards 2021 which gave head turning stares from a lot of people.
