“Comedy shouldn’t be used as a decoy to disregard people on national television. Bovi you did that at the Headies last year and I sent your friends and narrow streets to warn you don’t try again.

I’m struggling with things trying to pull myself together and you go live on TV to talk about my kids? Bovi see you next time. Thanks.”

Ubi went on to say he doesn’t condone violence, but sensitive things like this shouldn’t be used as jokes on live TV.

He also declared his respect for comedians:

“I have so much respect for comedians, I worked as a PA for one (Julius Agwu) many years ago. But comedians need to know their limitations, they have their own sordid past and present, they too have issues to contend with. Try it and dampen it, some jokes are very sensitive.”
