Comedian Bright Okpocha, also known as Basketmouth, has refused to respond to the claim by his colleague, Ayodeji Makun, popularly known as AY, that the cause of their feud was a debt of N30,000.
Recall that AY had in an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, said: “In 2006, Basketmouth usually had multiple wedding gigs on Saturdays’. So what he used to do at that point in time was to attend one, and at a point, leave the venue to catch up in the other venue.
“Now, one of the gigs that I got his endorsement to stand in at that time was N30,000 and 30,000 was everything to me at that time. “Two weeks later, I haven’t seen 30k. and I was starving. I decided to ask for 30K, and he said this person hasn’t paid. It was very funny to discover that the full payment was made before the event.”
”One day, I met Basket in the club with a glass of drink, and I said to him, How far, my guy? This thing that happened in 2006 guy drop am. And my dear colleague looked at me eyeball to eyeball and said, I’m a beast. I don’t forgive.”
Reacting to AY’s claims, during his recent show, while cheered on by fans about the incident, Basketmouth said: “To be honest, I don’t want that guy to ever hear from me.”
