Why AY won’t perform at my show – Basketmouth

Bright Okpocha, nicknamed Basketmouth, a popular comedian, has invited his old opponent and colleague, AY Makun, to his gig in Lagos this Sunday.

He made the gift just weeks after publicly apologising to AY and putting an end to their 17-year feud.

He did, however, state that AY will not be performing or making a cameo on stage at tonight’s event at the Eko Hotel & Suites because everything is scripted.

Speaking in a recent interview with Arise TV, Basketmouth 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.” (Sic)
