Bright Okpocha, a well-known comedian, has refused to respond to AY’s claim that their feud was sparked by a N30,000 debt.

Ayodeji Richard Makun, also known as AY Makun, recalled how Basketmouth frequently asked him to perform at events at the start of his career in an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo.

He claims that the 17-year feud with Basketmouth began after he attended an event where the organizers had anticipated Basketmouth’s attendance.

He acknowledged that he hadn’t received payment and that he needed to speak with Basketmouth. Basketmouth confirmed that the organizers hadn’t made payment.

AY stated that he was shocked to learn that payment had already been made when he contacted the event’s organizers.

He said; “Usually, what we get at that time is N30,000. N30,000 at that time was everything to me,”

“N30,000 would buy me my pack of [noodles], recharge cards, fuel for my generator. [It allowed me] to pay just one or two people to join me to do one or two skits that I can just quickly put out. I got this job and the people weren’t too happy to see me because they were expecting a Basketmouth to come. Long story short, the guy was later happy after the performance. There was an exchange of contact. Then I left.

“Two weeks running, I hadn’t seen ₦30,000. Because I didn’t see the ₦30,000, I was starving in Iponri. I decided to ask for ₦30,000 and he said this person hasn’t remitted. He said they were not happy.”

Basketmouth was questioned about the issue during a live comedy show, and he said that he does not want to share his side of the story neither does he want to comment.

He explained that what he says would be reported by the media as an official reply to AY and he does not want that to be the case because he doesn’t want the actor to ever get a response from him.
