Nigerian foremost comedian Bovi, has narrated a touching experience of how his son had almost died the day he was born due to negligence.
He made this known while wishing his son a happy 10th birthday anniversary. Bovi’s wife also narrated the story while thanking God for their son.
According to Bovi, the boy had almost been strangled by the umbilical cord because the nurse had forgotten an important equipment and the doctor had declined to help out.

“Chukwu Onye ebere the hands are together” the nurse screamed in panic as she stared down the vagina. Ten years ago, my sons first day on earth seemed destined to be his last. At a private hospital in Ogba, the nurses operated in panic mode rather than urgency. The doctor on duty, I would later find out, was in his office but refused to come out. He asked the nurses to handle the delivery. @krisasimonye was screaming in pains. The umbilical cord was around the babies neck. She wanted to push so bad. But the nurses realized that one of the pieces of equipment they were meant to use wasn’t in the tray. A nurse dashed out to go get it. @krisasimonye screamed in anguish “why are you doing this to me”. They had insisted earlier that it was false labor. She was sure it wasn’t. One of them decided to check again and behold it was time. And they weren’t ready. They actually told her to hold on when all she wanted to do was push. Eventually David was born. Swollen all over. Eyes round and shut like a corpse. Still. Lifeless. Numb. Ugly. They raised him up, turned him upside down and started to slap his butt. Time paused. Silence. Sound. Cry. Breath. Life. He had arrived. I was hurt that the first thing my first fruit had to do was fight to come to life. But I took solace in the fact that he won his first of many battles. Fast forward to hours later and the doctor comes to our room to felicitate with us. He met a blank cold stare from us. And I cannot forget his stupid unprofessional words “I’m so sorry. I got info that one of my good friends died. I just couldn’t gather myself to come. I was just dazed in my office”. The words of a trained doctor. Anyway, here we are today, ten years later. Happy birthday to my son, David Abovi Ugboma jr.
I have tried everything possible not to make this day an emotional day for me….. My miracle baby saved by grace is 10. Today brings back so much memories, I cried 10yrs ago today cos the pain that my dad didn’t get to know or see my first child hit me so hard. The last photo reminds me mamas dance after David was born. She wasn’t the best dancer, but she would still move her body & sing any song that comes in her head regardless. Oh mummy, your son is 10 today can you believe it??? A child who was born swollen, and ugly. And I didn’t realize what God saved me from until our other 2 kids came that was when it dawned on me that he was stressed during labor. With fluid still coming out of his nose 2 days after and his skin so messed up we had no idea what was going on. But for God’s grace I don’t know what would have been my story today. This is one of my numerous testimonies….and no matter what, I’ll keep saying God is faithful and he loves me so much!
