Nigerian comedian Abovi Ugboma better known as Bovi had a curious choice of outfit for The 14th Edition of the Headies 2021. The comedian who was co-host of the award ceremony alongside actress Nancy Isime showed up with the now-infamous blood-stained Nigerian flag from the shooting at the Lekki Toll Gate imprinted boldly on his shirt.
Although it was merely a shirt, the shirt spoke volumes as it strikingly reminded viewers of the #EndSARS protests which rocked the nation in October 2020 and its tragic end at the Lekki Toll Gate.
Meanwhile, the choice of outfit was greeted with mixed reactions. While some feared Bovi might get into trouble with the shirt, others commended the comedian, hailing him for showing solidarity with the #EndSARS campaign.
Check out some of the reactions below

BOVI didn’t wear any Nigeria flag. Nigeria flag is in landscape form and not in portrait form according to what he wore, Nigeria flag is not a shirt that has pocket, Nigeria flag does not have red color. Get sense. Do not fuel what is not. #Bovi is just wearing a shirt
