Bovi had attended the UNIBEN Staff School for his primary education. In 1991, he was enrolled in Government College, Ughelli in Delta State, Nigeria. For disciplinary reasons, his parents had removed him from boarding school and transferred him to Edokpolor Grammar School in Benin city, their hometown.

That move eventually proved futile and he was shifted to Model Secondary school, an all-boys boarding school in Onicha Olona, a town in Delta State. After his high school graduation, he had joined Delta State University, a state government-owned university in Abraka, Delta State, in 1998, to study theatre arts.
