Bovi slams critics for saying his 8-year-old daughter is rude
Bovi Ugbomma, the Nigerian comedian cum actor, has taken a swipe at critics who think his daughter is “rude”.
Some days ago, the comedian took to Instagram to share a video of his 8-year-old daughter watching TV while her mother and brother were cooking in the kitchen.
In the footage, Bovi is heard asking the little girl why she wasn’t in the kitchen.
The comedian jokingly said she can’t cook but her brother can. In her reply, the little girl reminded her father that he also can’t cook.
“I don’t want any drama from someone who also can’t cook,” she retorted.
Bovi daughter’s response, however, didn’t sit well with some of the comedian’s followers.
While a segment of his followers found it ludicrous, others were of the opinion that she was being “rude” and “disrespectful”.
Reacting to the criticism in a follow-up post, the 42-year-old said those who found the video funny have “emotional equilibrium in your lives”.
He also aimed a dig at those who felt she was being rude, saying they were “triggered because you have been abused while growing up”.
“How times have changed. I have read all the comments and I’m convinced people see what they want to see. To those who found it lighthearted, you can tell there’s emotional equilibrium in your lives,” he wrote.
“They could see that speaking freely doesn’t necessarily mean indiscipline and we were basically on cruise. As for those who were alarmed, check well, we were raised to think confident use of words amounts to being rude.
“That’s why in some places, a younger person asking an older person ‘how are you’ or ‘how nau’ is regarded as being rude. Cheer up.
“You’re triggered because you were abused growing up and you have mistaken being outspoken for being rude. That’s not to say kids can’t be rude. But in this scenario, she wasn’t being rude. Cheer up.”
