On Tuesday, popular Nigerian comedian, Bovi Ugboma revealed that he was banned from entering the United States.
Narrating the circumstances that surrounded the restriction, the comic star revealed that the ban followed the moment he clashed with a visa-issuing officer and got labelled. This, he said, while replying to questions from fans after he hosted a Question and Answer segment on his Instagram story.
When asked by a fan to come to Massachusetts to perform, the father-of-three replied: “I’m banned in the USA.”
His reply to another fan who asked him if he intended to leave the country reads: “I am a citizen of the world. Except for Yankee where I’m banned.”
Giving more details on the incident, he said, “ Ill luck. Met a charity-like visa-issuing officer. Egos clashed. I was labelled. I go dey carry shoulder.”
The comedian had revealed in February 2022 that he was almost accused of stealing at a London hotel.
In his Q&A, the comedian also addressed the perceived beef between him and fellow comedian, Ayo Makun, popularly known as AY.
When asked by fans why he and AY don’t perform at each other’s show, the comedian made reference to American comedians.
“Have you ever seen Chris Rock at a Henry Hart show?” Bovi replied to the inquisitive fan.
