Bayer Leverkusen striker Victor Boniface has ventured into the realm of comedy with a collaboration with popular skit-maker Pepper Mouth.
That production was done while the forward was in Nigeria for the winter break and gearing up for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), Boniface has become a social media sensation for his humorous takes and banter on platforms like Twitter.
In a viral video, Boniface, known for his on-field prowess as the 2022/2023 Europa League top scorer, displays a different side of his personality.
The skit features Boniface in a humorous interaction with Pepper Mouth, who plays a character in need of financial assistance. Boniface, lying on a bed in a well-furnished room, generously offers money to his financially strapped friend, leading to a comedic twist.
In response to dissatisfaction over the amount, Boniface presents a pair of boots and a jersey, encouraging Pepper Mouth to try his luck as a footballer and hustle for his own income.
The video has gained significant traction on social media, drawing amusement from fans.
Despite his newfound comedic talents, Boniface is set to shift his focus to representing Nigeria in the upcoming AFCON, where he aims to contribute to the Super Eagles’ success.
With an impressive 16 goals across all competitions for Bayer Leverkusen this season, Boniface is expected to be a key asset in Nigeria’s attacking lineup during the continental tournament.
The Super Eagles are in Group A alongside hosts Ivory Coast, Guinea Bissau, and Equatorial Guinea, and Boniface will be eager to make a significant impact in the quest for AFCON glory.
