Basketmouth Apologies To AY, Seeks To End 17 Years Feud

Nigerian comedian, Bright Okpocha popularly known as Basketmouth, has tendered an apology to Ayo Makun, also known as AY, his colleague, after nearly two decades of feud.

Recall that during a March 2023 interview with popular media personality, Chude Jideonwo, AY claimed that earlier in his career, Basketmouth had invited him to take his place at a comedy show.

After the show, AY claimed that Basketmouth refused to pay him the N30,000 fee for the performance even though the show’s organisers had made the payment to the latter even before the event.

Reacting to the allegation, Basketmouth said he would rather not respond. He also expressed his desire to never talk to AY again.

“To be honest, I don’t want that guy to ever hear from you,” he said in the viral video.

However, Basketmouth has taken a U-turn to apologise to Makun for his misdoings. In a video shared via his Instagram page on Monday, the comedian said he was genuinely sorry for any hurt he has caused to anyone in the industry.

“To my guy AY, I don’t know if my apology is still valid right now, but if it is, please forgive me for whatever I have done or said in the past that affected you in any way and I want you to know that I have forgiven you for whatever you said or did, knowingly or unknowingly. I just want peace and harmony”, he said.
