Bovi Ugboma, a popular Nigerian comedian, has spoken out about a recent incident in which he was almost accused of stealing at a London hotel.
During his interrogation, the ace comedian revealed in a series of Instagram stories on Wednesday that he told staff at the London hotel to ‘google’ him in order to save himself.
He claimed he was trying to check into a hotel in London and was requested to show the card he used to reserve the room when he arrived.
Bovi noted that he made it clear to the hotel that his wife, using her card, helped him book the hotel and she was in Nigeria.
He stated that his explanation did not make the situation better as they thought he was trying to steal.
The comedian further noted that the matter turned worse when his own card declined.
In order to save himself from the situation, Bovi revealed that for the first time in his life, he used the word ‘google me.’
In his post, the actor also made reference to a popular con man, who goes by the name Simon Leviev, known for the Ponzi scheme and internet scam.
Bovi noted that Leviev had ‘spoilt everywhere’ with his escapades and has made organizations more alert to scams and cyber theft.
The comedian wrote, “Simon Leviev done spoil everywhere o. Tryna check into hotel in London and they insist I present the card that was used for the booking.
“I tell them it was done for me by my wife and she’s in Naija. That made it worse. They think I’m stealing. Then to crown am, my own card dey decline.
“For the first time in my life, I said the words ‘google me’.”
