Popular Nigerian comedian, Bovi, seems to have broken the table of ‘bro code’ after revealing one of the crucial rules from the ‘code’ men have been faithfully adhering to in staying loyal to their colleagues in times of need.
The comedian who will be turning 40 on September 25, 2019, decided that the best way to celebrate the birthday was to pull a prank on eight of his loyal friends and some Twitter users are fuming about this.
Rule number 58 of the bro code, a set of rules influenced by pop culture serving as friendship etiquettes among men, says ‘a bro always has his bro’s back’ and that’s exactly what Bovi’s friend stayed true to.
He shared the first of the eight videos on Thursday and it didn’t take long before it sent social media abuzz with many Nigerians trolling him for exposing the ‘bro code’.
While the heat generated by the first video is yet to subside, Bovi dropped the second video on Friday morning prompting some Nigerian men to whimsically call for his excommunication, while others also declared that he has been disowned from the league of men.
In the first and second videos, Bovi’s wife, Kris Asimonye-Ugboma, who was standing with her husband in their living room called his friends Mohammed and Ufuoma Kerewi respectively asking if Bovi was with them. She told them Bovi said he was with them but is not picking his calls and wanted to confirm if he was truly with them.
Mohammed quickly cover-up for Bovi and answered in the affirmative claiming he was moving close to Bovi to give him the phone, but Ufuoma told Kris that her husband may have told her he was going to see another Ufuoma and not him.
A few seconds later, the two men called Bovi to inform him about the wife’s call, asking him to explain what where he is.
After speaking with Bovi, they called Kris to cook up lies about his whereabouts, not knowing Bovi was standing beside his wife to pull a prank on them.
The comedian also revealed that some of his friends have been begging him not to release their videos, “I’m sorry. I’ve gone mad,” he said.

Reacting to the pranks, popular rights advocate, Segun Awosanya aka Sega quoted one of the videos on his Twitter handle and wrote:
“Bovi has desecrated the Continental grounds. You don’t conduct business in the premises by joking with critically sensitive sanctuary code preserved by men of honor for eons. You are hereby excommunicated effective immediately. Signed— League Of Extra Ordinary Gentlemen.
“In an hour or two from now once his contract is set, he will be sharing fashion tips with Bobrisky.”
