Popular comedian, Basketmouth has come out to open up on his rift with fellow comedian, AY. He recently revealed this in an interview with Ebuka and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, AY broke his loyalty rules some time ago, and even if he later apologized, their relationship has not remained the same.
Basketmouth added that even if they reconciled after the breach of trust, they rarely talk since then.
His words, “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.”
“I did not snatch Bovi. Bovi is not a girl.”
“Bovi and I went to Abuja. He performed. I was blown away. When he was done, we talked about what he could do better. We’d been friends but that was the first I saw him perform. I didn’t know any background story.”
“I proposed that we do business together and we clicked. I was already hearing claims before and after the settled rift with AY.”
On what next, “My concern is increasing my audience, not feuds. How do I make viewers follow religiously? I have a film coming, a special coming next year ‘The Voices In My Head’, a sitcom coming to TV, another album. These I worry about.”
