Comedian Ayodeji Richard Makun, popularly known as AY, has continued to cause a stir on social media following his 17-year-old beef with his colleague, Bright Okpocha, professionally called Basketmouth.
DAILY POST had earlier reported that a portion of the comedian’s interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo shared online captured AY recounting how Basketmouth betrayed him in 2006.
The latest portion of the interview, posted by Jideonwo on social media, revealed more about the longstanding rift that has left them as sworn enemies over the years.
According to AY, after the 2006 incident, he attempted to attend Basketmouth’s wedding but wasn’t permitted into the venue.
He said: ”When we arrived, my wife’s name was on the guest list, but my own was noticeably missing. I was looking at my wife, my wife was looking at me, and she said, let’s be going home since you are not qualified to enter.”
He further revealed how his name would be kicked out of events because Basketmouth was in attendance.
“It’s so bad that my name will be removed from an event sometimes. Basket will be at an event. Maybe AY is on the bill, and he won’t introduce me if he’s the MC. I will just go and pick up my mic on the floor and go and do my thing. But I never gave up. Every opportunity, maybe the wife gives birth, I would go with my wife, or maybe something is going on. I kept doing everything.
”One day, Basket was in the club with a glass of drink, so I walked up to him. I said: Bright Okpocha (He’s my senior colleague but my junior in real), how far my guy. As you can see, God has blessed us. You have a house in Lekki, I have a house. You have a child. I have a child. This thing that happened in 2006 guy drop am.
“And my dear colleague looked at me eyeball to eyeball and said, I’m a beast. I don’t forgive.”
