BASKET MOUTH: BIOGRAPHY, AGE, NET WORTH, FAMILY, AND MANY MORE


If you ever want to get your ribs cracked and you have not listened to the comedian Basket Mouth, then I guess you are the one joking then. He is a very talented comedian that have been in the comedy business for a very long time. 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.

STATE OF ORIGIN: He is an indigene of “God’s Own State”, Abia State, Nigeria.

NET WORTH: For now, Basket mouth remains the second richest comedian in Nigeria after Ali Baba, he is currently worth N2 Billion. He really takes his comedy business seriously and apart from that, he makes more money from endorsement deals with several Brands in the country.

FAMILY: He is married to Elsie Uzoma Okpocha, they got married in the year 2010 and blessed with two (2) kids, Jason Okpocha and Janelle Okpocha.



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.

"" Basket mouth remains the second richest comedian in Nigeria after Ali Baba, he is currently worth N2 Billion.""

Doesn't this sound silly n impossible to you?
Re: Basketmouth: Biography, Age, Net Worth, Wife, Children, Family, And Many More by lordtim001(m): 11:24am On Sep 06, 2018
Some people do not understand English
He is worth 2 billion naira does not mean that he has 2 billion naira in his account
His house/houses, his cars, his investments and other properties, his endorsement deals are worth 2 billion. I do not see how that is impossible.
He charges about 2 million for a performance in a show. All his endorsements are worth about 100 million naira annually and he has been in the limelight for years. I do not see how this is a tall tale
