Nigerian comedian, AY Makun, has finally opened up about the real reason for the longstanding beef with colleague, Basketmouth.

The entertainer was a guest on media personality, Chude Jideonwo’s show #WithChude and he had a lot to get off his mind.

A portion of the interview shared online captured the moment AY narrated his side of the story and what went wrong with Basketmouth.

“In 2006, (Basketmouth) usually will get gigs like weddings – multiple gigs on a Saturday, maybe 2/3 weddings. So what he used to do at that point in time was to attend one, then at a point, leave the venue and catch up in the other venue and then you will need someone else to stand in for you. That was the opportunity I got from him of which I am very appreciated.

AY proceeded to recount a particular experience where he filled in for the comedian and the client eventually loved his performance despite initial disappointment that Basketmouth didn’t show up. According to AY, at the time, he usually gets paid N30k for gigs like that and it was an amount that could cater for a lot of his basic needs.

AY narrated how he was forced to ask Basketmouth about his payment after two weeks.

He, however, claimed the comedian said the client hadn’t paid particularly because they were not impressed with his performance at the event.

“And then me I was like, ahahn… but this person na, shebi you tell me say you were impressed and happy? Give my oga hin money na, make my oga take settle me and all of that. Me, I don’t care if you give Basket 100k for the job but my 30k is my 30k,” AY shared.

According to AY, he contacted the client and it was revealed that they had paid Basketmouth ahead of the show.

AY said the back and forth led him to send messages he received from both parties to each other and things eventually went south from then onwards.
