'It's absolutely abnormal' - Bovi reacts to pre-wedding shoot of a Nigerian soldier & her groom-to-be

The pre-wedding photos trended in the media on Monday. See here here. Comedian Bovi however feels it's inappropriate and reacted via his Instagram page. Read below.
"I saw this picture and a few others on the blogs today. It was reported as a pre-wedding photoshoot and the characters involved are supposedly an intending couple. Many have hailed it as creative and that just lacerates my heart because it's obvious we as a people have eventually accepted as normal that which is absolutely abnormal.
A soldier, no matter the posting is ultimately trained for combat. They are programmed for battle. In brighter climes, you will never see a soldier in public. They're either in the barracks or the war front. I'm suppressing the urge to compare and contrast so I will just ask some questions. Is a soldier supposed to hold a gun or a stick? Is a soldier meant to punish a civilian? Is a soldier meant to assault? Is a soldier meant to obey traffic laws? Is a soldier meant to seize camouflage apparel worn by civilians? Is a soldier above the law? I beg to be informed. Help wipe off my ignorance. I wish the couple a happy union ! And shout out to the true soldiers out there defending the existence of Nigeria with their lives and the fine officers who have maintained the dignity of this revered profession in the face of this skewed practices!

It's absolutely abnormal, height of stupidity even. Just imagine how the poor man is reduced to a mumu. The pic also depicts injustice and maltreatment of civilians by the military! #50ShadesavStupid

Nseabasi Ekpo said...

i like to add one more question to Bovi's: when the lady soldier raised the stick, what was her intention or from this picture what does this gesture portrays; and when the man was doing push-ups while she watches, was it a show of energy to proof he is fit and can perform or a punishment? Whatever, this pictures stands for, i wish the lady does not bring her profession into the house; wish them best of luck.

AbokiDaWarriBoy said...

Bovi bros abeg chill it's just a pre wedding shot not war front ,it meant to be playful and fun just like the way you comedians crack jokes about politicians/ police men and N50. I think you should channel your energy on something more meaningful than this,if possible apologies to the couple. #ITKπŸ€•

Won tun ti de o, why can't people just mind their buisness and let peoole live their lives the way they want. Oga bovi please remove your nose from people's business and face your own. Haba, creating issues when there is now. Peoole can shoot their pre wedding pics whichever way they want it, face your own

sugarplum said...

I love you bovi, but I disagree with you on this, is a photo shoot concept that they created purposely for only uniqueness reason. We all have different mind set, Anywhere love carry you go follow, listen and follow your heart, your happiness is what matters. Mind only your family affairs

I never for once liked the idea..it doesn't make sense, that means she will eventually punish him when they get married...lol

He should take a chill pill. It ain't that serious. It was just a pre-wedding photo shoot. The concept is on the edge of being creative and a little bit thought provoking. I do believe it's the previous. Please let's allow the about to be married couple flourish abeg

Bobby said...

Is he jealous why are some ppl like bovi are so negative..as a soldier won't she love cos she is a soldier..how about him as a comedian..as a nigerian why did he went to the US to give birth..He is also telling people Nigeria where he starts his career from is not good or safe for birth..We need to be encouraging not discouraging..To me he is just jealous a military woman falls in love hopefully that's the kind of woman he wish to marry

He actually has a point.
That this concept was used by this couple and hailed by many shows the normalisation of violence and abuse of power by certain members of the military against civilians. Sad.
On the other hand, this was only for a bit of fun.

Ha! Bovi as i like you reach, you just fall our hand. i don't see anything with these pre-wedding shoot and with all that you claim a soldier does. We have seen soldiers out there treating civilian bad and beat up civilian. Asking them to frog jump on the side of the road and even ask them to lay down inside gutter.. Please if you don't have anything to say, please go and do your own pre-wedding shhot and use the whole mayoung Barracks and there machinery to do your own Pre-wedding shoot.Abeg Parkwell

@Bovi.. It is interesting as this is a picture with a strong message.. A message of dedication n proving ur worth.. A message of i am a cant kinda guy.. A good music plays from seeing this picture.. The Groom to b seems to be begging the lady on his knees.. The Bride to be looks like she was telling a story about how difficult the task ahead is.. The guy can be seen yet again convincing the Bride to be.. To make matters interesting proves a point by doing push ups to show he is fit fr d task ahead.. This is no related to d Nigerian military in anyways.. Focus n learn to appreciate and see the positivity in things.. Yet again u hv proven to b like the others n thats y the country is not moving forward.. Grow up Bovi much respect.. Even from a military perspective it has positive meaning.. The man is begging to serve his nation n proves his fitness by doing some push ups... A positive thinker..

Long grammar, leave them alone, to each his own.
If people start taking everything you do on stage serious, many would have fought you or reacted angrily. Who made you a prewedding photo shoot judge. See him forming serious, same comedians that joke with almost everything.

this bovi guy is an asshole, i always knew it, what the fuck is your headache in other peoples picture , even in abroad, people recreate all professions from all walks of life and infuse some fun it it, this is not a problem or an issue at all, this is just a picture you fucktard, just shut up and go and face ur comedy, double standard fools, i dont know ur own business in this matter. i am a Feminist

MICHEAL ONUNAKU said...

True talk!!! When people do something wrong for so long they always tend to adapt to it and consider it as a Norm!!! A soldier is not supposed to torture, intimidate, bully or punish a civilian for whatsoever reason but shits like that happen in our country and it is now generally accepted like it's right... Nigerians we still have a long way to go!!!

Anonymous said...

Dont just know what to say. But the act, art, etc are very disgusting. Spiritually, the idea speaks volumes. Satan can begin to attack them, if they dont take time. How can people trivialize things like this. A would be bride wielding stick before her supposed groom. It's absurd indeed! Rather than showing where the bride bends down before her husband, its the other way round. Even the man (if he's the real groom) is no longer in his 30s. The fun would have been caught right if it's been a 30-year-old. STUPENDOUS!

kiodi said...

U stupid fcks don't understand what bovi is sayn, if she was a police handcuffn and forming arrest, it would be been cool, cos its their job, what d pics potray is d wrongs d army does. making it a wedding concept celebrates it. Change starts wit us.

Dumb response. How can he wish to marry a military woman when he's already happily married?

Castro said...

If she wasn't holding a stick in the pictures, it wouldn't have mattered. Pre wedding pictures are supposed to connote a couple that's in love. How does a military woman with stick and her hussy to be doing press ups before her show show how in love they are? Is the press up preparing him for the honey moon?

I understand the couple was trying to be creative, nothing serious but I also understand Bovi's point of view. The couple just wanted creative and fun pre-wedding photos but it's sad that society has accepted the ill treated that's been meted out on civilians by military guys (that is honestly what the picture portrays). These military people have to stop playing God.

Anonymous said...

BOVI'S POINT IS MADE...LOOK AT ALL U IDIOTS ON THIS BLOG CRITICISING HIM. THE PICS MAKE FUN OF A NORMAL SITUATION IN NIGERIA. THE QUESTION IS TO Y'ALL. IS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE OUR NORM? SHOULD SOLDIERS INTERACT WITH CIVILIANS IN THE VIOLENT MANNER THAT THEY DO? IDIOTS! THE LOT OF U. EXACTLY WHY NAIJA'S PROBLEM IS BIGGER THAN CORRUPTION.

Photo shoot or no photo shoot! Let us do the right thing. The picture is so wrong and unromantic! Bovi has every right to express his opinion. Nigerians don't like the truth. When something is not good, say it.

Anonymous said...

What bovi said is trash these photos is a replica of our society that it is a pre wedding photo is helping us bring to light what is happening around us. Is bovi criticing this photo or teaching us something I don't understand.

kunta said...

Its absolutely normal!..
.Nigerians have this problem.. THEY DON'T MIND THIER BUSINESS!

As for u Bovi, u take this so personal, e b like say Army man don slap u before abi na y u enter this woman like this..

This is a Pre-wedding photo shoot, it should'nt b taking seriously, am so surprised this is coming from a comedian, u have said so many annoying things on stage and we the audience just laffed about it cos u are a clown but nevertheless ALWAYS MIND YOUR BUSINESS.. No b u she wan marry, d guy wey she dey marry no complain so wetin b ur own..

I question BOVI...WHO TEACH YOU ALL THIS ENGLISH WEY U WRITE FOR HERE BECAUSE I KNOW SAY U KNOW GO SCHOOL..... LMAO

All you haterz, STHU! It's a pre-wedding photo with two people who love each other, if you don't have anything nice to say, move on. Daft Bovi had to bring this up. Cheap piece of shit!

Enemy of progress. What really irritated him was the fact that it was a woman in uniform punishing a WHOLE man. Village idiot!

Bovi mind your business!
Which one is a shout out to the 'real soldiers'? What are you implying by that comment?
Bovi is being overly judgemental.
The photo shoot is super adorable.

Iche Dimkpa said...

BOVI, WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO SPOIL THEIR FUN? WHEN YOU RIDICULE YOUNG LADIES AND MOCK SOLDIERS AND THE POLICE WITH YOUR JKES, NO ONE LAMBASTED YOU IN THE SOCIAL MEDIA. A LADY'S WEDDING IS SUPPOSED TO BE ONE OF THE HAPPIEST DAYS OF HER LIFE. WHY DO YOU WANT TO KILL HER JOY SIMPLY BECUASE YOU MISSED THE JOKE? PLEASE APOLOGISE TO THEM...DON'T RUIN THIER JOY

Onyinye Oluwanuyi said...

If it was shot in USA, or somewhere else I bet this would have been a crime, or interpreted same way (BOVI'S view).

I think we should all begin to grow even in our thoughts.

The couple to be should have consulted a learned or more exposed photogragher.

This concept........ I cant deal.

But for the couple to be, I wish you the best.

Uju.O Uju.O said...

Bovi my brother we are in a society where illiteracy rules hence you read most of them accusing you of failing to see the fun in it. They don't get it, will never get it until they get proper education. Nigeria is a doomed society created by the British to fail therefore anyone trying to correct or rebuild Nigeria on a faulty foundation is bound to fail. The answer lies in breaking it up first. Images portray messages sometimes better than speech so anyone who does not see the point you 'a professional comedian' is trying to point out, simply is educationally innocent.
