Nigerian comedian Bovi today lost his mother.
She died yesterday Jan. 25 2016.
Just last November. Bovi wrote a touching tribute to his mom as she turned a year older.
Still celebrating my dear mum. I’ve searched all day for the right words to describe how I feel and the more I try, the more I feel like crying. I cherish everything she’s taught me but one I am forever grateful is the habit of reading. She would say “don’t worry, when you grow up and have a house of your own, you can watch tv all you like”. Little did she know that I was watching tv because I was trying to figure how to get in it.
Well the good thing is the reading she insisted on taught me how to get in the TV. She started me off with pacesetters. And then gave me an unsteady supply of James Hadley Chase. But she forbade me touching her mills and boon (romance and temptation). She also tried to stop me from reading Hints magazine. And that’s what got me curious. ( if only she knew, she would have called it mathematics by hints- I’ve always hated mathematics) Oh well, I don’t know how to end this story…. Maybe it’s because we’re nowhere near the end of it afterall
