In five years, I’m quitting comedy, Basketmouth declares, providing an explanation


Bright Okpocha, a Nigerian actor and comedian best known by his stage name Basketmouth, said that he would be retiring from comedy after five years.

This was disclosed by the stand-up comedian in an interview with Hitz1039fm that was shared on Instagram.

According to Basketmouth, who has been floating for the previous six years, he promised himself and his team that he would return to comedy for five years before quitting.

“I have planned my life to drop the mic when at 50, though I’ll still be cracking jokes but not professionally. So you could see me doing a gig or promo, but I will not charge anyone to perform again because I have made enough.

“I would say I have made enough by committing myself long enough to the act, and it’s time to take a break or quit and just have fun till the end of time.

“I’m into TV right now, movies, series, and concert production. That’s where I want to start a new journey and experience something new.”
