Veteran Comedian, Basketmouth Reveals Plan To Quit Comedy Amidst Revived Beef With AY



Veteran Nigerian comedian & actor, Bright Okpocha Alias Basketmouth, has revealed when he plans to call it quits to his career in comedy. The comedian disclosed that he would be leaving the industry in five years time.

His announcement came days after his colleague Ayo Makun Alias AY called him out on an altercation they had years ago.

Speaking in an interview with Hitz FM, Basketmouth discussed how he has just been floating for the past six years in the industry and decided to return to comedy last year.

The actor pointed out that he has made enough money from the industry to last him for life, but desires to have new experiences apart from comedy.

His words, “For the past six years I have just been floating, last year I told myself and my team, you know what I am going back to comedy I want to do five years and I am quitting. I am quitting in 5 years.

“I have got five years to go to do this and I am done. I will still be cracking jokes but it wouldn’t be a professional thing. So if you see me doing any gig, it is maybe I am doing pro bono but i will not charge anybody to perform again.

“I have made enough, I have committed myself to the art enough to take a break or quit. I am now into movies, series, and concert production. I want to experience something new and I want to be remembered for something else other than comedy.”
