Nigerian comedian, Bovi Ugboma, better known as Bovi has slammed a Nollywood director, Niyi Akinmolayan over attitude to his new movie, ‘My Village People’.
The funny personality took to his Instagram story at the weekend to state that Akinmolayan is a clout chaser.
Bovi accused the director of making the movie ‘lame and deliberately mediocre’.
He wrote, “Day 3 of a two-week shoot, when he first tried to shut my set down because he didn’t want me to even correct his reductive approach to the script, I promised him that with or without him, the film will be a success.
“From then on, the approach to making this picture became lame and deliberately mediocre. Idris and Moses kept begging me to just ignore his alarming character flaws and finish the project. And that’s how I started petting Oga like a four-year-old till we finished…Now the film has done favorably well he’s come out of his coven to advertise himself. Shameless.”
The father of three stated this hours after Akimolayan, who directed his movie ‘My Village People’, shared an Instagram post about how two of his movies; ‘Prophetess’ and ‘My Village People’ have hit major numbers in the box office.
But Bovi claimed that the director decided to identify with the movie because he realised people are really turning up for it.
Akinmolayan later deleted the post and did not address Bovi’s accusations.
According to Comscore figures, ‘My Village People’ has maintained the top four spot three weeks after its premiere, grossing over N70 million.
