Bovi, Nigerian comedian, has surprised fans after he appeared at The Headies 2021 with a blood-stained #EndSARS themed outfit.
The 41-year-old, who co-hosted the award event alongside Nollywood’s Nacy Isime, wore a shirt portraying a blood-stained Nigerian flag symbolising the shootings that played out during the #EndSARS protest at Lekki tollgate last year.
The Headies 2021 aired from the Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
It witnessed the presence of prominent singers and saw them take home prestigious awards in various categories.
Among those honoured at the award event are Burna Boy, Niniola, Fireboy, DJ Neptune, praiz, and Mayorkun.
The comedian’s outfit has since attracted commendations from Nigerians on Twitter.
Here’s what some Nigerians had to say:
Bovi just made me feel he deserves all the #14thHeadies award.
