- Comedian Basketmouth revealed he used to be a hawker before he became successful
- He opened up about this at the recent Nigerian Entertainment Conference
One of Nigeria's most celebrated comedian, Bright Okpocha aka Basketmouth has revealed his humble beginnings before comedy.
He said this during the Nigerian Entertainment Conference on April 26. In his words: ”One thing that kept me going is the fear of failure. I used to hawk coconut in Kirikiri town”
“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”.
