Popular comedian Bright Okpocha, aka Basketmouth, says he hasn’t sued a real estate company, despite not getting real estate 14 years ago because he’s not a big fan of the country’s justice system.
In an interview with Sunday Scoophe said: “I am not a big fan of the justice system in Nigeria because of the processes involved. Unfortunately I don’t trust it. I pushed as much as I could, but the man is someone I respect a lot, and along the We became platonic friends. I bought another property and moved three years later. I kept asking about it, but they had a lawsuit. They told me they would give me another house, but so far it hasn’t happened.
“I was upset and wanted to call him out, but his brother became king and out of respect for the name of their family I withdrew.
“I later found a better construction company and I’ve been dealing with them ever since.”
The comedian also noted that entertainers who fail to show up for performances after being paid put others in a bad light. He said: “When I hear such stories, it disgusts me, because comedy is not an ordinary job. One has time to make one’s content, and even if another event comes, one can attend both if one schedules one’s time well. If a customer books one and one doesn’t show up, you’ve not only disappointed them, but they’re also unprofessional.”
On how he maintains a life without drama, he noted that he keeps his personal life private.
