Veteran Nigerian comedian cum film actor, Bright Okpocha professionally known as Basketmouth has revealed his intention to quit his professional career in comedy in five years time.
This is coming days after his colleague, AY Comedian called him out on their age-old beef.
In an interview recently released by Hitz FM, Basketmouth shared how he had just been floating for the past six years in the industry and decided to return to comedy last year.
The comedian revealed he had made enough from the art to last him for life as he revealed his desire to have new experiences aside from comedy. In 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.”
Asides comedy, Basketmouth is already in the music and movie industries. Watch the video below:
Recall Nigerian comedian cum actor, AY Makun has told his side of the story about his ‘beef’ with colleague, Basketmouth.
He spoke very candidly about the genesis of the long-lasting feud between him and Basketmouth during an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo.
Recall that AY, during an Instagram question and answer session in 2022, said Basketmouth has an “uncontrollable superiority complex.”
Not stopping there, he noted that he (AY) had to avoid Basketmouth’s “incessant childishness” for his own sanity.
