In response to AY’s claim that he was turned back at Basketmouth’s wedding, he made this statement on The Honest Bunch Podcast.

When AY went to Basketmouth’s wedding, his wife Mabel Makun’s name was on the guest list, but his name was not, so he and his wife went home.

Basketmouth responded by saying that AY is not his friend and thus was not invited to his wedding. Basketmouth went on to say that neither AY nor his wife had been invited to his wedding.

“Just to set the record straight, number one, AY is not my friend,” Basketmouth stated. We’ve never been close. I’ve never been to his house. I’ve never invited him over to my house. “I never called him one day and said, ‘O boy, where you dey make we hang out?'”

Remember that AY and Basketmouth have been feuding for 17 years, dating back to a 2006 incident.

Basketmouth revealed in a 2021 Black Box interview with media personality Ebuka Obi-Uchendu that he fell out with AY because he messed with loyalty.

Then, in an interview with Chude Jideonwo, AY revealed what sparked their feud.

“In 2006, Basketmouth usually had multiple wedding gigs on Saturdays,” AY said. So what he used to do at the time was attend one, then leave the venue to catch up in the other, and then he’d need someone else to stand in for him. That was the opportunity I was given, and I’m grateful for it to this day.

“Now, one of the jobs for which I received his endorsement was to stand in. Normally, we get N30,000 at that time, and 30,000 was everything to me at the time. I got this job, and the people weren’t thrilled to see me because they were expecting Basketmouth, but the guy was pleased with my performance later on. There was a contact exchange. Then I walked away.

“I haven’t seen 30k in two weeks.” Because I hadn’t seen the 30k, and I was hungry, I decided to ask for 30K, and he said this person hasn’t remitted, this person hasn’t paid, and I was like, but this person said he was impressed and happy? I don’t care if you pay Basketmouth $100,000 for the job; my $30k is my $30k.

“It was amusing to learn from them that the full payment had been made well in advance of the event.” I passed on their message to one another. So they started fighting and everything. I didn’t do it because I was eager to see Basketmouth. But I was hustling because I was hungry and needed food on the table at the time.”

AY claims that after the 2006 incident, he attempted to attend Basketmouth’s wedding but was denied entry.

“When we arrived, my wife’s name was on the guest list, but mine was noticeably missing,” he explained. I looked at my wife, and she looked at me, and she said, “Let’s go home because you’re not qualified to enter.”

He also revealed that he was kicked out of events because Basketmouth was present.

“It’s so bad that my name is sometimes removed from an event,” he explained. Basket will be present at an event. Maybe AY is on the bill, and if he’s the MC, he won’t introduce me. I’ll just go pick up my mic from the floor and do my thing. But I didn’t give up. Every chance I get, whether it’s because my wife is giving birth or because something else is going on. I continued to do everything.

“One day, Basket was in the club with a glass of drink in his hand, so I approached him.” Bright Okpocha (my senior colleague but my junior in real life), how far my guy? As you can see, God has been gracious to us. You live in Lekki, and I live in Lagos. You’ve got a child. I am the mother of a child. This guy dropped am in 2006 because of something that happened.

“And my dear colleague looked me in the eyes and said, ‘I’m a beast.'” “I never forgive.”
