I Was Not Allowed To Enter Basket mouth's, Wedding Hall  - Comedian AY

By Agboola Ibrahim

In a recent interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, one of the Popular Nigerian comedians, Ay Live has recounted his ill-treatment and the distress he experienced when he attended his colleague, Basketmouth's Wedding party.

Recall that in an earlier interview with Chude, Ay Live recounted what infused enmity between him and his colleague Basketmouth.

AY recounted that money had brought a rift between him and Basketmouth. This occured in the year 2006 when Basketmouth failed to pay him for the service he rendered him. The negotiated price was just N30K and Basketmouth dribbled him here and there until a rift broke out.

Shedding the light on what unfolded subsequently, Comedian AY claimed that after the 2006 incident, he attended Basketmouth’s wedding but wasn’t allowed into the venue.

According to AY, when they arrived, his wife’s name was on the guest list but his own was noticeably missing.

In his words; Verified “Do you know that I attended Basket Mouth’s wedding when all these things were going on at the time, I was at the wedding, they looked at the list of guests, wife’s name was on the list, my name no dey list. I wasn’t qualified to enter the wedding.

“I was looking at my wife, my wife dey look her husband and she was like okay, let’s be going home since you no qualify to enter.

“So quite a lot happened. So when you keep quiet and you don’t say anything; the only time I will now address it with that tweet, everybody came for me. Nobody knows what I have been going through.

“It’s so bad that, sometimes, my name will be removed from an event: ‘If AY is in, I’m not in’.

Basket will be at an event, maybe AY is on the Bill, he won’t introduce me if he’s the MC. I will just go and pick up my mic on the floor and go and do my thing. It was that bad.

“But I never gave up. Every opportunity – maybe the wife gives birth, I’d go with my wife or maybe something is going on – I kept doing everything.

“Long story short, one day Basket was in the club with a glass of drink so I walked up to my guy. I said: ‘Bright Okpocha. (He’s my senior colleague but my junior in real life), how far my guy.’

“So we got talking. So I said to my friend, ‘You see God has blessed us. You have a house in Lekki, I have a house. You have a child, I have a child, and God has blessed us. This thing that happened in 2006, guy drop am.’

“And my dear colleague looked at me eye ball to eye ball and said: ‘I’m a beast, I don’t forgive.’”
