'I don’t mess around with loyalty' - Comedian, Basketmouth for the first time opens up on beef with AY Makun



Nigerian comedian and entertainer, Bright Okpocha, better known by his stage name Basketmouth has opened up about his rift with colleague, AY Makun, popularly known as AY.



For years speculations have been rife about the relationship between the two comedian who have never worked together and are hardly seen together.


There were even reports that both comedians had their own camps of comedians who were associated with them.


Basketmouth has now opened up on the alleged beef, saying AY 'messed with loyalty' but that he has apologized and they are now cool.



Speaking at Ebuka Obi-Uchendu’s Black Box Interview series on Bounce Radio, Ebuka brought up the issue of 'disunity among comedians in Nigeria.' Ebuka then asked Basketmouth to comment on his relationship with AY.



“I’d have stayed where the competition is. I still do standup comedy but not with great energy because I’m targeting all-around entertainment now. My competition is me. There’s nothing [like a feud] between AY and I, he said.


“He came in my space; messed with loyalty by saying something to my lawyer Magnus that I told him in private. It was nothing but it was enough to cause a rift and have me put up the walls. We made peace and he apologised. I have no single problem with AY as claimed. We don’t talk.”
