Basketmouth And I May Never Reconcile-AY

Famous comedian, Ayodeji Makun, aka AY, has confessed that he and another comedy ace and erstwhile collaborator, Basketmouth may never be reconciled.

Both comedians have a 17-year-old beef, which AY claimed was over an unpaid N30,00 debt owed him by Basketmouth, which the latter denied, stressing that they were never friends.

Broadway TV quotes AY from a recent interview with Teju Babyface, as saying he no longer minds going to his grave unreconciled with Basketmouth.

According to AY, their senior colleagues are aware of his efforts to reconcile with Basketmouth, adding that they told him at some point to stop forcing reconciliation when Basketmouth didn’t show interest in any form of reconciliation.

AY was quoted as saying: “The bros [senior colleagues in the comedy industry] knew [about my beef with Basketmouth] and at some point in time, they had to ask me to slow down. They were like: ‘You’re doing too much. You are putting in too much to make this thing work. Friendship is not by force.

’“I was believing that ‘No, this can work’. Even in my last stand-up comedy, I had to go on stage and I did another routine ‘My guy. How’s my guy? This is my guy. If you see this guy, tell him he’s my guy.’ And the following morning, every where exploded again. ‘We are not friends. We are not that. We are not this.’“So, for me now, I’m not pushing anything anymore. As I’m here now as AY, if I have to go to my grave without sitting with any of these guys to say ‘hello, ‘hi,’ I will be happy.”
