Nigerian comedian Bovi recently took to his Instagram page to narrate an experience he had with friends after founder of Zenith Bank Plc. Jim Ovia gifted him N5 Million on stage after a performance last year.
In his post, he decried the nature of Nigerians to always seek commissions when you get something from other people. He revealed that after the unexpected gift from the banker, friends approached him to request for their shares
See what he wrote:
“Last year at an event, Jim Ovia gifted me 5 million naira for being a good mc. The hall erupted in applause. I was pleasantly shocked. However getting out of that hall was like Lagos traffic in rush hour. Everybody wanted a piece of my cake. Like wtf?!?! It’s me he dashed. Not us!
And some were like “didn’t you see me shouting and jumping when he said it?”. So because they jumped and shouted I had to part with something ��♂️��♂️��♂️��♂️. Anyway I shared the money even with those who have like me.
So last Friday at the same event, one year later, uncle Jim comes on stage again to make a speech and this is the moment he was commending me again and that’s me smiling but praying that he doesn’t announce it again ����.
Because on arrival I already had people telling me “you know chairman likes you. Anything he dashes you today na me and you o”! ���� Every Nigerian has become an agent who wants commission. You buy car, you go wash am, your wife born, you go wash am.
Even when you die, for your burial, dem go help you wash am! �”
