It takes Bright Okpocha a.k.a. Basketmouth hardwork to crack people’s ribs whenever he is on stage, as much as he is gifted to turn even a sad scenerio to a hilarious moment.
Basketmouth recently revealed his kind of comedy is different, it’s different from other comedians because he has to be original and be himself on stage.
Basketmouth told the NET, “The Nigerian flavour; my kind of comedy is different. It’s different from other kinds of comedians because I have always wanted to be me, original and myself on stage. I have worked on my brand for years to get to where I am right now. What I’m going to be bringing on stage is going to be different from what I have even done before. I want to give it my best; I want to make Nigerians proud. I am not just doing this for myself or career; I’m doing it for ‘Naija’. “
Lately, his customized 2013 Opel Insignia car that costs a whopping $42, 000, approximately N10million made the news, everything from the exterior to the interior decor, finishing and electronics were made according to Basketmouth’s specifications.
I didn’t go out of my way to buy a car neither did I fly all the way to Belgium to buy a car, it was just a coincidence that I just bumped into the car. It was also coincidental that I was the only person that ordered it from this region. ‘ he said about the car.
And for his music flair, ‘… I did a single in the past with Faze, it came out but nothing happened. I didn’t push it because I didn’t like it. I did one with Darey, I pushed it and I did another one with Eldee The Don.
Until I did with Wizkid I almost didn’t want to release it so it was like let’s just try and see how it goes and we did two singles and people liked it and definitely some people hated it but I’m going to release the album regardless so I have to complete that part of my journey and by the grace of God it’s going to come to pass this year.’
We hope to see this music soon…
