Popular Nigerian stand-up comedian, Bovi Ugboma, has openly discussed the relationship with his senior colleague, Basketmouth.
In a recent interview with media personality, Chude, Bovi disclosed that he has severed his friendship with Basketmouth because he has come to the conclusion that it is now time for him to build his brand and put more of his attention on himself.
The comedian mentioned that there is a limit to how far some people can push you and that eventually, you will need to stand up and make more strides.
Nevertheless, Bovi went ahead to reveal that he and Basketmouth are still cool, but the energy they had back then was a phase and now they are in new phases.
He further stressed that priorities changed as they grew every day and right now he wants to be happy and do the things that make him happy.
In his words,
“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.
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 does not 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.”
