Comedian Basketmouth opens up on disagreement with AY Makun


Popular comedian, Bright Okpocha, better known as Basketmouth has opened up on the fracas between him and his colleague, AY Makun.


The duo was rumoured to have been at loggerheads with each other for years as they always kept their distance from each other despite being caught in the web of the same occupation (comedy).

Reports and rumours also had it that the Basketmouth and AY Makun developed their camps of comedians in order to distinguish themselves.

In a recent development, Basketmouth has cleared the air as regards the quarrel he had with AY while saying that they are on good terms now.

Speaking at Ebuka Obi-Uchendu’s Black Box Interview series on Bounce Radio, the popular TV host, Ebuka tilted their conversation towards disunity among comedians and raised the issue between him and AY which caused him to give a clear explanation.

“I’d have stayed where the competition is. I still do standup comedy but not with great energy because I’m targeting all-around entertainment now. My competition is me. There’s nothing [like a feud] between AY and I.

“He came in my space; messed with loyalty by saying something to my lawyer Magnus that I told him in private. It was nothing but it was enough to cause a rift and have me put up the walls. We made peace and he apologised. I have no single problem with AY as claimed. We don’t talk.”  Basketmouth said
