Bovi Ugboma, Nigerian popular stand-up comedian and actor professionally known as Bovi, has confirmed that the old photo of his colleagues, Basketmouth and AY Makun, aka AY comedian that was shared on social media was taken in 2004.

This comes amidst the feud between Basketmouth and AY.

Basketmouth recently revealed to media personality Nedu Wazobia in an interview that he and AY were never friends and thus had no photographs together, following AY’s disclosure that his feud with Basketmouth began over a sum of N30,000 not paid to him

To prove him wrong, some social media users dug up an old photo of the duo.

Meanwhile, in an interview Bovi has explained why he and his colleague, Bright Okpocha widely known as Basketmouth are no longer close unlike before, freshreporters stated.

It could be recalled that Bovi revealed this during a recent interview with media personality Chude Jidenowo, where he said he chose to put himself and his brand first, which caused a rift in his connection with colleague, Basketmouth.

The comedian stressed that although the “phase” they formerly shared has changed now due to high responsibilities, that is they both have children and family to cater for, they are still on good terms and that their relationship has its limits.

He said, “You know but there was this friendship, this symbiotic friendship but he was more visible because he’s a brand, you put Basketmouth’s name on anything and it’s going.

“So I think, over the years, my mission was to become a brand as well, a big one and there’s a stage where brands grow to and the room becomes too small, you’ll have to basically find your way, that now allows room for more people to come on board.

“I decided, you know what, it’s time to grow your brand and focus on you now. So I’ll take responsibility for my own decision. We are human beings, there will always be skirmishes, I mean, it’s also part of pop culture.

“We were young and restless and stuff like that. So I just realize that, like I said earlier, the biggest service you can do for yourself is to push yourself. If you wait for somebody to say, ‘come let me take you’, you might wait forever.

“I’m not saying that doesn’t happen, but there’s also a limit to how far certain people can take you. You have to get up and move to break new grounds.”

“He, however, affirmed that they are in good terms even though the ‘phase’ they once had isn’t the same now that they both have kids and bigger responsibilities.”
