17years after, Basketmouth apologises to AY, others (video)

Following a 17-year feud, comedian Bright Okpocha, also known as Basketmouth, has finally apologized to his fellow artist, Ayodeji Richard Makun, also known as AY.

Remember that AY and Basketmouth have been in the news recently due to their ongoing feud?

According to Platinum Times, Basketmouth said in 2021 during a Black Box interview with media personality Ebuka Obi-Uchendu that he lost out with AY because “he messed with loyalty.”

“To be honest, I don’t want that guy (AY) to ever hear from me,” he’d stated.

He also stated that they were never buddies to begin with.

However, in an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo in May 2023, AY traced the long-standing estrangement on a financial transaction that went sour in 2006.

Basketmouth, who is trying to sell tickets for his next November event, apologized to AY and anybody else he may have hurt.

Basketmouth, who took blame for the 17-year-old conflict, issued a public apology to all parties involved in a video posted on his Instagram page on Monday, saying:

“I just want to get this off my chest..”

He added: “Now, to all the people in the in the industry and beyond that I have offended, I’m saying this to you right now from the bottom of my heart, I’m genuinely sorry please, forgive me. To the people that have accused me of doing things that have affected their careers in one way or the other, I’m not going to accept or deny these allegations, but God knows the truth. But regardless, please forgive me from the bottom of my heart.

“Now to my guy AY, I don’t know if my apology is still valid right now but if it is, please forgive me for whatever I have done or said in the past that affected you in any way, forgive me. And I want you to know that I have forgiven you for whatever you have done or said knowingly or unknowingly. It’s gone, and I just wanted us to live in peace and harmony.

“Now for the people who are assuming that this apology video is birthed because I have a show coming up on the 26th of November, I would like to say you are absolutely correct. I’m trying to sell tickets for my show but I’m also sorry for everything that I have done.”
