Popular Nigerian comedian, Bright Okpocha, a.k.a Basketmouth is seeking an end to the bad blood between himself and his colleague, Ayo Makun.

The two have been at odds for more than ten years over a debt Makun alleges Basketmouth owes him.

During a March 2023 interview with popular media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Makun claimed that earlier in his career, Basketmouth had invited him to take his place at a comedy show.

After the show, AY claimed that Basketmouth refused to pay him the N30,000 fee for the performance even though the show’s organisers had made the payment to the latter even before the event.

Reacting to the allegation, Basketmouth said he would rather not respond. He also expressed his desire to never talk to AY again.

“To be honest, I don’t want that guy to ever hear from you,” he said in the viral video.

However, Basketmouth has taken a U-turn to apologise to Makun for his misdoings. In a video shared via his Instagram page on Monday, the comedian said he was genuinely sorry for any hurt he has caused to anyone in the industry.

“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 and I want you to know that I have forgiven you for whatever you said or did, knowingly or unknowingly. I just want peace and harmony”, he said.

The former Marlian Record signee’s demise has left fans and the music community in mourning.The announcement was made public by music executive Ovie, who shared the devastating news on his social media platform on Tuesday.

“Confirmed. MohBad is dead. Sad, sad day,” Ovie said via his X (formerly Twitter) handle.

Meanwhile, the details surrounding MohBad’s death remained undisclosed.
