You barely see him cracking jokes these days but he is using more of his time in building up talents, young comedians with great potentials and also he is organizing comedy shows.

A lot of people only know him on stage but does not really know more than that about him, but there is more about him to talk about than being on the stage. Let us get to meet the man Basket mouth.


WHO REALLY IS BASKET MOUTH?

ACTUAL NAME: We all know him as Basket mouth on stage, but the name given to him by his parent is Bright Okpocha.

AGE: He is currently 40 years old, born on the 14th of September, 1978 in Ajegunle, Lagos, Nigeria.

EDUCATION:
Basket mouth had his primary school education and secondary school education completed at Apapa, Lagos State after which he got admitted inti the great University of Benin where he studied Anthropology and Sociology and got his first degree.

HOW HE STARTED

His comedy game didn’t just start in one day, it may interest you to know that he was a rapper at a point in his life, that is in the year 1995. But before then he was discovering and improving on his drumming skills. The rapping journey for him was not really a successful one, he first formed a seven-man group, called DA PSYCOPATHS, but before they could release any official song, the group broke up. He didn’t still give up on his rap journey, he then started another group with his own brother Godwin and his friend Muyiwa. It was called DA ODDS, Although, it went a bit farther than “Psychopaths” as they were able to perform at shows but it also didn’t breakthrough in the end.

He was asked once when he was younger that what would he like to be in the future by his friend’s mother and he responded that he would like to be a comedian to the shock of everyone around, he didn’t know that would be his lifetime profession. His breakthrough came in the year 2001, when he went to meet Alibaba in Lagos when he was a student at UNIBEN.

Alibaba said he chose Basketmouth because it defines who he really is.

2 billion what?
This thread should be in the jokes section.

I think am beginning to lose interest in this site.
Topics are mostly about people and events. You only find "idea" related topics when u scroll back to 2010.
Jokers everywhere.
