Coconut? Basketmouth? Yes! he said so, himself! Basketmouth who was a speaker and panelist at the Nigerian Entertainment Conference held on Wednesday 26th of April said he used to hawk coconut in Kirikiri during his humble beginnings . . .

According to him: ”One thing that kept me going is the fear of failure. I used to hawk coconut in Kirikiri town”

The showbiz entrepreneur also lamented on the state of the Nigerian Entertainment Industry saying we lack structures.

“There are no structures in Nigeria. How many comedy clubs do we have? The government cannot do anything about it because they don’t care. We the entertainers need to synergize in order to be able to get bank loans so as to build our own event venues”.

Basket mouth is no doubt one of the most celebrated comedians in Nigeria. Over the years, the entertainer has taken African comedy to the world stage. He is the first Nigerian comedian to host Comedy Central’s Live at Parker’s held in South Africa.

Basketmouth hosted a comedy challenge on Instagram, called the #TwoThingsChallenge which sparked an uproar from fans, after a young fan posted a video of him saying obscene things relating to sex, with a child in close view in the video.
