THANK YOU! I wanna use this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who reached out to me and my family on the sudden passing of my gift, my rock, my backbone, my pride, my teacher; my dear mother! I had the divine opportunity of spending her very last days with her. And I spoke to her on the phone barely an hour before she left for glory” wrote Bovi.

Please don't mourn with me anymore. Celebrate her life. Though she was only 58, She left us all with so much that all I need to do is pause and listen and her voice hits me with what to and what not to do. I may not see her again physically. But she lives in me now. And those vices I hid from her as a human being, I can't do anymore because as a saint, she sees and knows all. Rest in peace to my beautiful mother, Dr. Margaret Ugboma. Me, Zino, Tano, Tome and Jiji will always love you. Once again, thanks to all of you. Your messages made us strong. Time to wash, pray and eat. Bless!!!!

Friend and fellow comedian Basketmouth was the first person who consoled Basketmouth on the loss of his mum on Instagram.
