Bright Okpocha, popularly known as Basketmouth, a Nigerian comedian, has said that he would retire from comedy in five years.

The comedian, who has long been a fan favorite, announced this in an interview with TVC on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, when he claimed that he plans to make every year leading up to his retirement count.

“Last year, I told myself and my team, you know what, I am going back to comedy. I want to do five years, and I am quitting. I am quitting in 5 years. I have got five years to do this, and I am done. I will still be cracking jokes, but it wouldn’t be a professional thing,” he said.

He also stated that he wishes to do something new that would live on in the hearts of many people for a long time.  “I want to experience something new, and I want to be remembered for something else other than comedy,” he added.

This comes only days after his colleague, AY Comedian, revealed the details of their long-running feud.

AY talked about how Basketmouth used to assist him to get connected with events when he was just starting out in the comedy profession, and how a 30,000 amount triggered the separation.

Basketmouth’s prior discussion of the beef revived as a result of the interview. Basketmouth said in the video that AY wrecked their relationship by disclosing confidential information to a third party.
