He emphasized that the extent to which their friendship might carry him was limited. Bovi added that their earlier closeness was only a passing phase.

He said;

“You know but there was this friendship, this symbiotic friendship but he was more visible because he’s a brand, you put Basketmouth’s name on anything and it’s going.

So I think, over the years, my mission was to become a brand as well, a big one and there’s a stage where brands grow to and the room becomes too small, you’ll have to basically find your way, that now allows room for more people to come on board.

“I decided, you know what, it’s time to grow your brand and focus on you now. So I’ll take responsibility for my own decision. We are human beings, there will always be skirmishes, I mean, it’s also part of pop culture.

We were young and restless and stuff like that. So I just realize that like I said earlier, the biggest service you can do for yourself is to push yourself. If you wait for somebody to say, ‘come let me take you’, you might wait forever.

I’m not saying that doesn’t happen but there’s also a limit to how far certain people can take you. You have to get up and move to break new grounds.”

Despite the fact that their previous “phase” has changed now that they both have children and more responsibility, he insisted that they are still on good terms.
