Why AY won’t perform at my show despite inviting him – Basketmouth

Famous Nigerian comedian Bright Okpocha also known as Basketmouth has clarified why his fellow comedian AY Makun won’t be performing at his show in Lagos today, November 26th despite having quashed their 17-year-old feud.

Remember that the two comedic powerhouses had a longstanding feud that spanned more than a decade until this year. The root cause of their conflict can be linked to an event that transpired 17 years ago. This set off a protracted period of hostility, during which they actively avoided and declined any form of communication with each other.

Basketmouth, who extended a public apology to AY, marking the resolution of their prolonged feud, offered details about why AY wouldn’t be taking the stage or making a cameo appearance at his event hosted at Eko Hotel & Suites in Lagos. The reason given was that the event follows a carefully scripted plan.

In an interview with Arise TV news, he said; 

“AY is not on the bill to perform but he has got a ticket. He’s attending. I sent him his ticket a few days ago.

“I knew a lot of people have been asking, ‘Is he [AY] gonna perform?’ He’s not on the bill.


“In actual fact, I don’t have that many comedians on the bill. I know Bovi is introducing me. Senator, Dan The Humorous and Aproko from Abuja are performing. I got a few people from Ghana as well.

“AY can’t even make a cameo because my show is already designed. We are recording for TV so it’s a three-hour set. As we speak the guys directing and producing they just came into the country about a few days ago.

“And before they even landed, we had already sealed the whole flow of the show. It’s not the kind of show where anybody would just get on stage. It’s not that kind of show. Everything is timed. Precision to perfection.”
