"Comedy should not be used as a decoy to disrespect people on national tv. Bovi, you did this at the last year's Headies and I sent your friends and close alleys to warn you, do not to try it again.
I am struggling with stuff and trying to put myself together and you go on live tv to talk about my kids? Bovi until next time. Thank you."
Ubi further said he doesn't condone violence but sensitive things like that shouldn't be used as jokes on live tv.
He also declared his respect for comedians:
"I have so much respect for comedians, I worked as a PA to one (Julius Agwu) many years ago. But comedians need to know their limits, they have their own dirty past and present, also they have things they struggle with. Try and tone it down some jokes are very sensitive."
