Popular comedian, Bright Okpocha better known as Basketmouth has cleared the air on the rift between him and colleague, AY Makun.
He made the disclosure during an interview on Ebuka Obi-Uchendu’s Black Box interview series on Bounce Radio, where he shed more light on the reason behind their fallout.
According to Basketmouth, AY messed with loyalty and it almost cost him alot.
The 43-year-old however, played down the situation and revealed that they have settled it and moved on.
“I don’t mess around with loyalty. He came into my space and messed around with loyalty,”
“He said something that he wasn’t supposed to say. That was going to cause a rift between me and this person.
“It was Magmus (Umeri), my lawyer. I said something to AY, and he told Magmus, and he wasn’t supposed to say it.”
“We made peace and he apologised,” Basketmouth said but also clarified that although he and AY are not friends but remain cordial.
Also, during the interview, Basketmouth cleared the air about the assumption that he fell out with AY because he took his mentee, Bovi from him.
“I did not snatch Bovi. Bovi is not a girl,” he said. He further revealed that he met Bovi for the first time at an event in Abuja and they became friends.
They both became inseparable ever since theirnfirst meeting and have been hanging out together and collaborating on different projects. But it has not been like that in recent times which prompts that something might be wrong with their friendship.
“Hustle, everybody is hustling; Bovi stepped into a new world. He is busy, and he does not have my time. Me, I’m hustling,” Basketmouth said.
