Comedian Bovi has reacted to Nancy Isime’s revelation that her nude scene in the crime thriller Shanty Town was done by a body double.
Nancy played the role of Shalewa a prostitute indebted to a notorious kingpin in the story of three women who unite to wage war against a ruthless crime syndicate.
The 31-year-old became the subject of conversation immediately after the six-part series was released on Netflix on Friday, January 20 because of the body parts on display.
In one of the scenes, Nancy’s character is made to strip naked leaving her buttocks and breasts on display.
Clips of that scene have been shared by Nigerians across the globe, leading to Nancy becoming the number one trending topic on Twitter.
Reacting to the confusion over her role, Nancy said in an Instagram post that she was not the one whose body was on display in Shanty Town.
According to her, a body double was used for the scene.
Parts of her post reads: “Simmer down horny boys and girls. I know those gorgeous body parts excite you but they sadly belong to my beautiful body double.
“Mine aren’t that succulent.
“Enjoy our beautiful masterpiece, get the message from each scene and Focus on the right Focus!
Reacting to Nancy’s post, Bovi wrote in the comment section “Na lie! Na you! It’s by force. Na you Nancy!”
Bovi’s wife Kris Ugboma also added her voice in the comment section of Nancy’s post, promising to watch Shanty Town over the weekend.
“Binging on it this weekend,” she wrote with two popcorn emojis.
Shanty Town also stars Richard Mofe–Damijo, Ini Edo, Chidi Mokeme, Nse Ikpe–Etim, Shola Sobowale, Shaffy Bello, Mercy Eke, Regina Daniels, Judith Audu, Toyin Abraham and Peter Okoye of P-Square among others.
