Comedian Bovi took to Instagram on September 13, 2016, reflecting on some lessons he learnt from the late 2Pac.
According to him, most people are concerned with public relations and getting big names for themselves without substance beneath.
“20 years today! Still relevant!!!! The lessons I learned from Pac both when he was alive and after his life have had a tremendous impact on my methods. But most important of all is I learned that only a man’s works can speak for him and keep him relevant! These days, many people focus on having big names! You see them in the news, on the blogs, on tv and everywhere else. Funny thing is, they have so big a PR presence, it dwarfs their work! For some, it’s PR without any body of work to show. And our younger ones are beginning to think that’s the right way! Hype is like a balloon, it takes a pin to burst one. Work is like the sky; if u look up u will see it! @najitedede said something profound. “People admire a beautiful cake but nobody really eats the icing.” I wanna be a cake! Don’t wanna be all ice.“
