I did not snatch Bovi from AY – Basketmouth


Stand-up comedian Bright Okpocha popularly known as Basketmouth has denied that he lured fellow comedian Bovi away from any potential business deal he had with AY.

The 43-year-old said this in a recent interview with TV host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu reported on Wednesday, stating that his concern in the industry is increasing his audience and not feud with other comedians.

“I did not snatch Bovi. Bovi is not a girl. Bovi and I went to Abuja, he performed. I was blown away. When he was done, we talked about what he could do better. We’d been friends but that was the first I saw him perform. I didn’t know any background story. I proposed that we do business together and we clicked. I was already hearing claims before and after the settled rift with AY.

“My concern is increasing my audience, not feuds. How do I make viewers follow religiously? I have a film coming, a special coming next year, a sitcom coming to TV, another album. These I worry about,” he said.
