Unpaid ₦30k Sparked My 17-year rift with Basketmouth –Comedian AY

Published

on

Comedian, Ayo Makun, popularly called, AY Comedian has opened up about his long time beef with his colleague, Basket Mouth.

In an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, AY revealed how Basketmouth used to connect him with events when he was starting out in the comedy industry, and how a particular event sparked the rift.

He said, “In 2006, (Basketmouth) usually will get gigs like weddings – multiple gigs on a Saturday, maybe 2/3 weddings. So what he used to do at that point in time was to attend one, then at a point, leave the venue and catch up in the other venue and then you will need someone else to stand in for you. That was the opportunity I got from him of which I am very appreciative of till date.

“Now, something funny happened. One of the gigs per se, I got his endorsement to go stand in. Usually what we get at that time is N30,000 and 30,000 at that time was everything to me. 30,000 would buy me my pack of indomie, recharge cards, fuel for my ‘I better pass my neighbor’ generator and then the opportunity to pay just one or two people to join me to do one or two skits that I can just quickly put out.

“I got this job, and the people weren’t too happy to see me around the venue because they were expecting a Basketmouth to come. Long story short, the guy was later happy after the performance. There was an exchange of contacts. Then I left.

“Two weeks running, I haven’t seen 30k. Because I didn’t see the 30k, and I was starving in Iponri, I decided to ask for 30K and he said this person hasn’t remitted, this person hasn’t paid, you they’re not happy because of this and all of that.

“And then me I was like, ahahn… but this person na, shebi you tell me say you were impressed and happy? Give my oga hin money na, make my oga take settle me and all of that. Me, I don’t care if you give Basket 100k for the job but my 30k is my 30k.

“It was very funny to now hear from them, knowing that this full payment has been made long before the event.

“I said ‘O-kay, is that the situation?’. So I forwarded this one’s message to this one and vice versa. So they now started fighting each other and all of that.

“I didn’t do that because I wanted to get at Basketmouth per se. I did that because I was hungry, I was hustling and needed food on the table at the time.”

DNA SAGA: Actor Yomi Fabiyi Writes Mohbad’s Widow; Wumi Aloba

Published

on

Dear Wunmi,

A DNA CAN BE REQUESTED BY MOHBAD’S FAMILY

I share in your family’s pain in the loss of Mohbad. May God forgive his sins. I am writing you based on the prolonged arguments on the issue of DNA concerning Mohbad’s son and ongoing investigation into the actual cause of his death.

The following reasons are why you can be compelled for a DNA TEST by Mohbad’s family:

i) From the look of things, Mohbad’s death is tilting towards “HOMCIDE” owing to events that happened in the last 48 hours before the singer d1ed. The coroner inquest is an investigation and needs closure before charges.

ii) In a saner cline, those around the deceased, those who tampered with the active crime scenes, are SUSPECTS and should have been taken in for questioning, which include you.

iii) If there is evidence/accusation of infidelity around the time of conception against you or re-occuring domstic violnce (and no clear reasons for conflicts), chances are the cause is due to paternity Only a DNA test can vindicate you, dear. It’s your advantage.

iv) if Liam will inherit the late singer’s estate and the likely cause of his muder is within the house, the family as a legally interested party can ask you honourably or through the court to conduct a DNA before you can be allowed custodian of their son’s properties on behalf of LIAM, etc. Moreso, the DNA will help investigators narrow their drag nets. NO ONE SHOULD OBSTRUCT POLICE or CORONER’S INVESTIGATION.

v) Mohbad, in an unverified audio released, equally accused you of wanting to kll him. No one knows if it is the normal couples’ fight or if it was due to any other sensitive issue.

vi) Anything that will bring clarity, absolve you of any wrongdoing, erase suspicion around you, get justice for Mohbad should interest you,including a DNA TEST.

vii) Your continued back and forth is an attempt to infuriate members of the public and pitch irrates youths against the Police and government. No sooner, people will conclude that someone powerful is shielding you. And that person can’t be more powerful than a determined masses.
