Ace comedian, Bright Okpocha better known as Basketmouth has disclosed why his colleague, Ayo Makun better known as Ay will not perform at his show in Lagos.

Basketmouth made this revelation months after he resolved his 17-year-old disagreement, with AY.

Glamsquad recalls that Basketmouth and AY had a 17-year spat over thirty thousand Naira. However, Basketmouth publicly apologized to AY, resolving their long-standing disagreement, he stated that AY won’t be performing at his event because is scripted.

He disclosed this during an interview on Arise TV news when he appeared as a guest to discuss why “Stand Up Comedy is dying in Nigeria”.

He said,

“AY is not on the bill to perform but he has got a ticket. He’s attending. I sent him his ticket a few days ago.

“I knew a lot of people have been asking, ‘Is he [AY] gonna perform?’ He’s not on the bill.

“In actual fact, I don’t have that many comedians on the bill. I know Bovi is introducing me. Senator, Dan The Humorous and Aproko from Abuja are performing. I got a few people from Ghana as well.

“AY can’t even make a cameo because my show is already designed. We are recording for TV so it’s a three-hour set. As we speak the guys directing and producing they just came into the country about a few days ago.

“And before they even landed, we had already sealed the whole flow of the show. It’s not the kind of show where anybody would just get on stage. It’s not that kind of show. Everything is timed. Precision to perfection.”
