”I’m deeply sorry” – Basketmouth apologises to AY, other comedians [VIDEO]

Comedian Bright Okpocha, popularly called Basketmouth, has apologised to his colleague Ayodeji Richard Makun, known as AY, following their 17-year-old feud.

Basketmouth, in 2021, during an interview with media personality Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, noted that he fell out with AY because “he messed with loyalty”.

“To be honest, I don’t want that guy (AY) to ever hear from me,” he said.

Reacting to the longstanding rift in an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo in May 2023, AY attributed the cause of the split to a business transaction that went sour in 2006.

A few weeks ago, another comedian, Destalker, accused Basketmouth of working against him in the comedy industry.

In a video shared on his Instagram page on Monday, Basketmouth tendered a public apology to his colleagues.

He said: “Now, to all the people in the industry and beyond that I have offended. I’m saying this to you right now from the bottom of my heart: I’m genuinely sorry; please forgive me.

“To the people who have accused me of doing things that have affected their careers in one way or the other, I’m not going to accept or deny these allegations, but God knows the truth. But regardless, please forgive me from the bottom of my heart.

“Now, to my guy AY, I don’t know if my apology is still valid right now, but if it is, please forgive me for whatever I have done or said in the past that affected you in any way; forgive me.

“And I want you to know that I have forgiven you for whatever you have done or said knowingly or unknowingly. It’s gone, and I just wanted us to leave in peace and harmony.

“Now, for the people who are assuming that this apology video is birthed because I have a show coming up on the 26th of November, I will like to say you are absolutely correct. I’m trying to sell tickets for my show, but I’m also sorry for everything that I have done.”
