Basketmouth opens up on ‘resolved’ feud with AY

Basketmouth has spoken extensively on the well-publicised feud between him and Ayo Makun, his fellow comedian.

In the second part of his ‘Black Box Interview’ with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, TV host, Basketmouth, whose real name is Bright Okpocha, said the rift has since been settled.

The comedian said AY revealed to a third party what he told him in confidence.

“I’m not competitive. I did 23 years years of comedy first. Towards the end, I started moving away. After comedy, I decided I was going to do TV, then online. Doing online, the opportunity for music came, so I did it,” he said.

“I left the online sitcom and went into music fully. From music, I’ll now go into movies, with my first film to come in November 2021. From there, I’ll go back to standup comedy. If I had a competition, I won’t be moving!

“I’d have stayed where the competition is. I still do standup comedy but not with great energy because I’m targeting all round 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.”
