Comedian Pokes Fun At Davido And WizKid on MTVBase


On this week’s edition of Nigeria’s number one weekly show, MTV Base Official Naija Top Ten, popular comedian and actor, Bovi is the studio guest and – true to form - he gives everyone a good laugh during the chart countdown.

The comedian, who co-hosts this week’s show with MTV Base VJ Ehiz, joins in the frenzy of this week’s number one video, “Surulere” by Dr Sid featuring Mavin boss, Don Jazzy.

With many celebrities posting “before” and “after” photos of themselves, using the “Surulere” hashtag on social media, Bovi states that some Nigerian celebrities have avoided putting up any photos as they never experienced suffering while growing up.

He said, "Some of our celebrities like Davido have never seen or experienced suffering. He can’t even put up one “Surulere” picture because his past is brighter than some people’s future.”

Bovi, who reveals this week chart with Ehiz, also throws a light but hilarious jab at Star Boy, Wizkid.

He says, “Wizkid is the only Nigerian boy who adds to his age while others keep reducing theirs. I believe he has never shaved before because he is just sixteen and if he is really older than that, I dare him to put up his birth certificate on Instagram to prove his real age!”
 
The MTV Base Official Naija Top 10: March 28 – 3 April 2014:
1. DR SID FEAT. DON JAZZY – SURULERE
2. PATORANKING - GIRLIE O
