Basketmouth publicly apologizes to AY, ending 17-Year feud



Popular Nigerian comedian Basketmouth has publicly apologized to fellow comedian AY, also known as Ayodeji Richard Makun, ending their 17-year feud.

Basketmouth made this surprising move through a video shared on his Instagram page, extending his apologies not only to AY but also to others he may have offended within the entertainment industry.

The feud between the two comedians had been a long-standing topic of discussion in the Nigerian entertainment scene. In 2021, Basketmouth revealed during an interview with media personality Ebuka Obi-Uchendu that their falling out was due to loyalty issues. He also emphasized that they were never friends to begin with.


However, in a May 2023 interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, AY provided a different perspective, linking the roots of their discord to a business transaction gone awry in 2006.

In the Instagram video, Basketmouth expressed deep regret for his past actions. He stated, “Now to all the people 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.”

Directly addressing AY, Basketmouth added, “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.”
