Showkey made this revelation on his verified instagram account
“Those promoting boxing in our country are stupid. There are people that have been supporting boxing, promoting boxing; doing everything to bring boxing back to life in our country.
“You will bring international boxers and celebrate them but you will not take people that have been celebrating boxing to come there. At least, to carry the campaign. You take them to government officials that do not support boxing; those that do not support our sports in our country. Those that have killed our sports generally. No be mumu una be? You are stupid people.”

“My reason for making the video I made is this; I have a passion for boxing. Everybody that knows me knows about my passion and love for boxing. We come from a country whereby we celebrate other people’s success but we do not celebrate our own.” He said.
