Following the death of basketball legend; Kobe Bryant, a number of reactions and tributes have trooped in. International and local celebrities, politicians, sportsmen, and the general populace have expressed their grief on the loss of Bryant.
Comedian Bovi has also taken to Instagram to lament Kobe’s death. He had this to say:
This one hurt differently. This man influenced my teenage years. #ripkobe
Some Nigerians have questioned the credibility of Bovi’s comment; the comments largely underline the fact that both Bovi and Kobe are about the same age. See some of these reactions on Twitter below:
On the flip side, some are in defence of Bovi: Their argument lies that age has nothing to do with influence, and besides; they grew up in different backgrounds and environments and were exposed to disparate idiosyncrasies.
What do you think? Yay or Nay?
