Popular Nigerian comedian, Bovi Ugboma, has disclosed that he has been banned from entering the United States.
The comedian revealed this on Tuesday while hosting a question and answer session on his Instagram story.
According to Bovi, he was banned from the country after he clashed with a visa-issuing officer and got labelled.
He first mentioned the ban when a fan asked him to come to Massachusetts to perform.
“I’m banned in the USA,” he replied.
Another fan asked him if he intended to leave the country and he replied: “I am a citizen of the world. Except for Yankee where I’m banned.”
Explaining the reason for the ban, the comedian said:“ Ill luck. Met a charity-like visa-issuing officer. Egos clashed. I was labelled.”
Giving more details, he added: “I go dey carry shoulder.”
The comedian also addressed the perceived beef between him and fellow comedian, Ayo Makun, popularly known as AY.
When asked bya fan 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 fan.
