Remembering City Bwoy

City BwoyMany of you have no doubt already heard the tragic news that popular “porn star” City Bwoy died earlier this week.

City Bwoy was a true icon in the black gay porn industry – a real “porn star” in every sense of the word. I was a fan of his work long before I began making my own movies and eventually had the unforgettable opportunity of working with him.

Jovonnie might have had those hypnotic pretty-boy looks that made him a star overnight, but I always preferred City Bwoy for some reason. He had a quiet confidence and down-to-earth sex appeal that is hard to describe, and like millions of other viewers all over the world, I have enjoyed his scenes many times over the years.

As most of you know, I had the privilege of meeting and working with City Bwoy in person several years ago. As a special favor to his good friend Lil Tyga, City Bwoy agreed to come out of retirement for a shoot with BBA that turned out to be a unique experience I will never forget.

Here’s what I had to say on the BBA blog around that time about the experience of working with one of my favorite “porn stars”:

I had a lot of anxiety going into that scene. Not only was I feeling the pressure of my first scene back after several months, but it was also my first scene with the new HD camera AND my first time working with an official “porn star” – and not just any “porn star,” one of the biggest names in the business!

I was worried that he might turn out to be some kind of porn “diva” who’d be intimidating and/or difficult to work with, but nothing could be further from the truth! He was friendly, laid-back, and extremely easy to work with. He spoiled me with that beautiful, “made for porn” dick which seemed to get (and STAY) hard on cue, plus the way he helped me get the best positions and angles without needing any directing from me.

I didn’t have much contact with City Bwoy after that, but I will never forget his surprising humility and positive energy from that night. He was quite honestly one of the nicest guys I’ve ever had the privilege of working with. His performance (and off-camera mentoring) brought the best out of Lil Tyga and helped propel his young protegee to the next level of popularity as a performer. And if it hadn’t been for City Bwoy’s easygoing and encouraging spirit that night, I probably never would have had the courage and confidence to pursue other special guest “porn stars” over the years.

Even though he’d moved on to other endeavors over the past several years, City Bwoy’s death is a great loss to the industry and anyone who has ever been entertained by his impressive body of work.

I want to wish City Bwoy’s family and friends great comfort and peace as they grieve his loss. If you’d like to show your appreciation and help his family with the funeral expenses, please click here to make a donation!
