A Nigerian Lady known as Zara Onyinye on facebook has called out popular comedian Bovi for violating Nigeria’s laws with the dress he wore at the just concluded Headies award ceremony.
Bovi was one of the hosts of the 2021 Headies Award Ceremony held yesterday February 21, 2021. In a rare gesture, Bovi wore a dress showing the Nigerian flag with some stains of red (like blood stains).
This image was one of the most popular images that #EndSARS protesters used to symbolize the Lekki Massacre that took place on the October 20th, 2020, an event which has been denied controversially by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
While many fans across the country have applauded him for showing such solidarity with the people that allegedly died on that day, Zara Onyinye has called him out for violating the law and also, disrespecting Nigeria as a whole.
According to her, his dress violated “The Flag and Coat of Arms Act Cap F30 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004 S.7”
