Comedian Julius Agwu has said that he believes there is more to the feud between his colleagues AY Makun and Basketmouth than the issue of N30,000.
AY and Basketmouth’s longtime beef was revisited when the former granted an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo just before his Easter Sunday show, AY Live.
In the interview, AY said he and Basketmouth have not been on talking terms over N30,000 which Basketmouth refused to pay him when he performed at a show on the latter’s behalf about 17 years ago.
Basketmouth responded by saying that AY was not telling the true story. He claimed he had forgotten about the money and that he distanced himself from AY because he heard some things which he did not like about him.
In an interview with Naija Info FM, Julius Agwu stated that it seems there is more to the story than what is being discussed in the public space.
He also claimed that he called AY after he learnt that the latter was planning a show on the same day he usually hosts his comedy show, only for his colleague to hang up on him.
He said, ‘’I don’t think it’s just the N30,000. Maybe there is more. Na we dey backstage. We nor go fit know. Maybe there is something else that is making them angry and they have both carried in their minds that is causing them quarrel.
“Laugh For Christ’s Sake was every Easter Sunday before AY began to do promo saying he was doing one show. I called AY telling him that day is my day, he cut the call on my neck.”
