Bovi hails Steve Babaeko on social media
According to the comedian, a Nigerian bank called him for a job in 2012 and he agreed for the sum of N200k. However, when he spoke with a friend, he got chastised and told that he could have asked for more.
Bovi said he called the bank back and rejected the first offer. According to him, he referred someone else and they liked him. However, when the report got back to Steve, he rejected the person and demanded him.
The comedian stated that Steve's rejection gave him the opportunity to bargain again and this time, got ten times the first offer.
