Abovi Ugboma, Nigerian comedian and actor better known as Bovi, has sparked a flurry of reactions on social media following the prank calls he pulled on a few of his “loyal” friends.
The ace comedian turns 40 on September 25, and to celebrate the milestone, he colluded with Kris Ugboma, his wife, to prank some of his “devoted” friends in the most ridiculous ways.
Bovi also took to his social media pages to share videos of the prank calls put through to his loyal friends.
In the videos, Kris calls a friend of Bovi’s to ask of her husband’s whereabouts. She claims Bovi had told her before he left the house, he will be with the friend and she has tried to reach him several times but he is not picking his calls. She does all these while Bovi listens to the conversations.
In both videos, Bovi’s friends cover for him and also call Bovi to hatch out corroborative stories to relay to his wife.
These humorous videos have provoked a frenzy of reactions on social media platforms especially Twitter.
Quite a number of users, especially men, have “jokingly” registered their feeling of betrayal towards the comedian for breaking the Bro Code — a friendship etiquette to be followed among men or, more specifically, among members of the bro subculture.
Others are of the opinion, the pranks might come back to haunt him in the future.
“Bovi just broke the bro-code. Why do you have to cast our matters like this Bovi? Why,” a Twitter user asked.
“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 honour for aeons. You are hereby excommunicated effective immediately. Signed— League Of Extra Ordinary Gentlemen,” another user said.
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:

The reactions to Bovi’s skit are embrassing. I hate how casually Nigerians take infidelity.
If you can’t be loyal to your spouse, why are y’all getting married every weekend like it is going out of fashion?

Bovi has revealed crucial Bro code secrets and has therefore been declared Ex-Communicado.
No Bro code services will ever be given to him again. He will no longer be welcome to The Bro code Continental grounds.
This take effects immediately.

Never prank your guy with your woman. Rule: 312. We must not take this aberration likely. We call for the immediate excommunication of Bovi from the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Bovi's wife now knows the guy that has her husband's back 100% and would rather side him than he also she knows who exactly not to call whenever she can't reach her husband.

Bovi’s Prank reminded me of the day my Nigga’s girlfriend saw a condom in my Nigga’s Car. While argument was going on. My friend called immediately, he said “Na u put condom inside my Car”?
I was like “OMG have been looking for it since Last night. I don Check my Car tire sef😤😤

Re: Bovi’s Prank
I know we credit Mohammed for holding the forte down for his friend , are we not going to give him extra points for not hinting any escapade while reporting the situation to Bovi??… like some guys would have gone ‘which babe you dey with’ or something close

Bovi The Comedian and other married men needs to take their time, you can’t be revealing sensitive Bro-Code information to women because you’ve attained legendary status in the game and now retired.
Stop blowing our covers, we still use these codes else we court-marshal una.
— Jack Robinson (@FeralJack_) September 19, 2019
Bovi’s friend, and other Association of Loyal Friends members, should sue Bovi for flouting the Bro Code.

That prank Bovi pulled on his friend with his wife is the reason a lot of friends are not worth more than a hand fan to their friend's wives.
"What should I offer you?"
"I wouldn't mind Glenfiddich 18yrs"
"Yimu. You that my husband has told me you can't afford it on your own"
— Megamind (@thisniyi) September 19, 2019
The day Bovi will actually need a cover up, none of his friends will come to his aid after seeing that video. Remember the man that cried wolf?
