‘I Will Beat You Up’ — Bovi And I Go Dye Fight Dirty On Instagram
An argument between two prominent Nigerian comedians, Bovi Ugomma and Francis ‘I Go Dye’ Agoda, which should have naturally ended on a lighter note, took a heated dimension as the former vowed to beat up the latter.
The comedians are in the middle of a war of words on Instagram over the bid of former Delta State Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan to contest for the senate in 2019.
Bear in mind that the former Delta governor recently moved to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He wrote on Instagram: IF YOU CAN RENT 1000 KVA GENERATOR FOR 1,536,000,000 ( ONE BILLION FIVE HUNDRED AND THIRTY SIX MILLION ) TO RUN THE DOME EVENT CENTER, WHEN YOU CAN BUY THAT GENERATOR FOR 43 MILLION. WHAT WILL YOU RENT OR DO WHEN YOU BECOME SENATOR ?
Life often offers us an opportunity to act,speak and do the needful at all time. I am destined to speak and act for the voiceless.
As the Ukaid Goodwill Ambassador on making a difference Against corruption, I believe, that for us to collective prosper as a nation we all must speak and act against corruption.
Remarkably, the fight against corruption has not being objective. The warm embrace and presidential hand shake given them after decamping expresses negativity in the fight against corruption.
At this point in our Nation, the true value of our lives as citizens, will be appreciated if we look beyond our immediate status of comfort and build a patriotic ideology to protect our country from further abuse.
In my civil quest to change and advocate for youthful leadership what is right,Charity must begin at home.In reflection of what should be ideal, Ex -Governor Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan born 22 October 1954 age 64 years, on August 6th 1999 age 45 years you became Commissioner for Health in Delta State, on 6 June 2003, Uduaghan was appointed Secretary to the Delta State Government and 29 May 2007 age 53 you became governor of Delta state.you should be be advocating for a younger candidate ,instead of the personal ambition to run for the Senatorial position in Delta State.
After enjoying the executive position for (8) eight years, with a allocation of 62.2bn a year × 8 years, over Five trillion nine hundred and seventy one billion two hundred million (5,971,200,000,000 ) within that period, noting can be ascribed to you ,in terms of infrastructural and human capital development.This is enough reason why he shouldn’t seek any other elective position in Delta State.
Reacting to the post, albeit in criticism, Bovi accused I Go Dye of not speaking up when Uduaghan was a serving governor.
He described his colleagues’ sentiments as “self-serving”.
He asked: “How much have you being paid to sell your hard YOUR hard earned reputation, as a beautiful Nigeria youth, that grew to become AKPO’S, now Bovi, only to be commissioned as a Baby lawyer by your favourite Governor Uduaghan? Someone whose children are graduating today in London while Delta State University is still in decay.”
“You just messed with the memory of my late mother. That was in March 2016. RMD brought him to my house to commiserate with me because he wasn’t going to make it to the funeral.
“This was days to her funeral. If only you could comprehend averagely, you would have known that my initial question to you had nothing to do with governance! Unlike you, I do not dabble in politics. It’s not my turf. My take on politics comes up mostly on stage. I’m friends with many governors and politicians simply because they love my work.
“The present Governor of Delta state was at my mothers funeral as our family’s guest. Unlike you, I have not gone to burden him with self-serving proposals. Please note that I didn’t bother his predecessor too. That’s always been your game.
“I was simply calling you out the way you called the governor out. Now look how you’re rattled and running all over the place! Francis, your legacy in the comedy industry cannot be questioned but your shallow intellect has never been up for debate.
“If you thought your actions through, you will know that after your multiple visits to the ex-governor, cap in hand, including the one you showcased only a portion of the video on the 30th of April this year, you have no moral standing to speak scathingly and publicly.
”When your enlightened writer put up the post on the former vice-president, you called and asked my opinion and I gave you thumbs up. You know why? Because I know you had never taken one of your self-serving proposals to the former VP.
“I have nothing against your hustle. If you want to segue into a social critic, it’s fine. But If any of our friends called you out after dining with you for years, I’d do exactly the same thing to that friend as I have done to you. For you to scroll down my IG page to two years ago shows your desperation to drag me in your mud. Don’t do that again.
“Go and sin no more. You will be okay but if you ever mention my children again, I will physically beat you up,” Bovi warned.
