Chigozirim also said that Bovi needed to be grateful to former Lagos state governor, Tinubu who helped him discover and build his talent.

In his words; “Dear Bovi, blocking me on this App is not a matured way to react to issues like this. You are among the celebrities that Blackmailed this Country in Oct 2020. National Apology from you should be your only option right now.”

“Moreover, You should be grateful to Tinubu’s Lagos for helping you to discover and build your talent, Because If not for Lagos, you would have been in Delta State hunting in the bush and tapping palm wine.”

Responding to the post, Bovi wrote: “Why hasn’t Tinubu’s lagos built your talent?”
