After receiving the award on stage, NEWS-ONE’s Canadian sources said Bobby interestingly decided to say a few words in ‘Twi’ to his Ghanaian friends who were among the audience. It was indeed a surprising moment for all at the event.
“To all my Ghanaians in the building, 3tins3in?” to which they answered, “3y3…” Bobby added, “Wo dia ne kuso?” and the crowd screamed even louder this time.
He continued by saying, “Me pa ch3wu, let me switch to English before my Naija people think Ghanaians have ‘jujued’ me…”
Bobby has a number of times been spotted in Ghana. He was at the Kerri Hilson and Bow Wow show recently held in Ghana. He also has a number of Ghanaian friends and has worked with stars as actress Lydia Forson.
Bobby is an actor, political activist, a boxer and a writer.
He is also the founder and CEO of Nigerian Youth for Change and a youth/community organization in Toronto called ALL IN.
He does more political analysis via his write-ups on various political platforms in Africa and Canada.
He is touted as Nigeria’s first young politician with tattoos and made an entry into Nollywood a few years ago.
Currently, he is described as the latest sensation in Nollywood. His unique personality, coupled with his passion and talent for acting, is the reason many Nigerian movie observers say he is getting more movie roles and working with reputable production houses in Nigeria.
He has already starred with top guns in Nollywood and Ghana one can think about.
Among them are Genevieve Nnaji, Ini Edo, Monalisa Chinda, Ramsey Nouah, Desmond Elliot, Uti, Lydia Forson, Uche Jombo and Van Vicker.
