According to TshisaLIVE, Bobo opened up about the effects of drug abuse in a now-viral video posted by the EFF on Twitter as part of their Youth Month campaign. He said he lost many opportunities and friends due to the bad decisions made when he was younger. He said:
"When I got into the acting industry, I was involved in drugs. I regret it because I lost so many opportunities, you understand. I lost so many friends and good things and even if I regret it, I can never reverse time and be able to regain that time. It feels bad. Deep down, I still regret it even today. But I am one of the lucky few to have survived."
