Comedian Bright Okpocha known well as Basketmouth has disclosed that he will quit comedy after five (5) years.
Basketmouth is currently in Ghana and is preparing for his upcoming stand-up comedy show, titled “Baskemouth Unprovoked,” which will take place on April 8 at the Accra International Conference Centre.
During an interview on the Ghanaian radio station, Hitz FM, Basketmouth disclosed that he has been floating for the past six years in the industry and so he decided to go back to his old love, comedy.
In his words:
“For the past six years I have just been floating, last year I told myself and my team, you know what I am going back to comedy I want to do five years and I am quitting. I am quitting in 5 years.
I have got five years to go to do this and I am done. I will still be cracking jokes but it wouldn’t be a professional thing. So if you see me doing any gig, it is maybe I am doing pro bono but I will not charge anybody to perform again.
I have made enough, I have committed myself to the art enough to take a break or quit. I am now into movies, series, and concert production. I want to experience something new and I want to be remembered for something else other than comedy.”
