Basketmouth accuses Jonathan’s govt of stealing



Basketmouth
Popular stand-up comedian, Basketmouth (real
name Bright Okpocha), is in the news again. This
time, it is because he has taken a swipe at the
government of former President Goodluck
Jonathan.
Midway into his show, tagged BM Uncensored,
which held in Houston, Texas in the United
States, a few days ago, the comedian accused the
Jonathan administration of doing nothing else
other than “stealing” money during its six-year
tenure.
A copy of the video posted on Youtube shows
Basketmouth, who was dressed in a sleeveless
top and dark trousers, speaking his mind about
the high level of corruption that prevailed in the
country under Jonathan’s watch.
In the video, the comedian said, “The funny thing
is that Buhari is now in power and everyone is
hating the guy under two months. I am normally
into politics, but when I see some s..t I say it.
Goodluck was there for six years and all they did
was steal money.”
The statement has since gone viral on social
media, with many users openly chiding
Basketmouth for opening his mouth ‘a little too
loud’ and others rising in his defence.
On the same day, the comedian also threw playful
barbs at Davido, who emerged winner of the 2015
MTV Africa Music Awards in the Best Male Act
category in South Africa last weekend.
Basketmouth had said,“Davido won above
Wizkid? It’s quite strange, but it’s allowed… it’s
allowed.”
Ever since the video appeared online, the
comedian’s actions have been the subject of a
debate among critics who are worried that he is
becoming quite vocal about issues not related
with comedy.
