Comedian Bright Okpocha, also known as Basketmouth and veteran comedian Ayodeji Makun (AY) are household names with a long relationship and history in the showbiz industry.


The two comedy icons may have started off and grown into friends and business partners at some point but via recent reports and viral news, its been brought to light that the two comical giants had a huge fall-out years back.


AY in an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo earlier this month claimed that the sum of N30,000 pay from a show was what birthed the ruckus and downfall in their relationship. 


“In 2006, Basketmouth usually had multiple wedding gigs on Saturdays’. So what he used to do at that point in time was to attend one, and at a point, leave the venue to catch up in the other venue.


“Now, one of the gigs that I got his endorsement to stand in at that time was N30,000 and 30,000 was everything to me at that time. Two weeks later, I haven’t seen 30k. and I was starving. I decided to ask for 30K, and he said this person hasn’t paid. It was very funny to discover that the full payment was made before the event," he shared.


Netizens had reacted and called out Basketmouth over his "petty behaviour". However, the entertainer has refused to respond to the claim by his colleague, Ayodeji Makun, popularly known as AY, that the cause of their feud was a debt of N30,000.


"One day, I met Basket in the club with a glass of drink, and I said to him, How far, my guy? 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.”


Reacting to AY’s claims, during his recent show, while cheered on by fans about the incident, Basketmouth said, “To be honest, I don’t want that guy to ever hear from me.”
