Nigerian comedian and actor, Bright Okpocha, better known by his stage name Basketmouth, said that he would be quitting comedy professionally in five years’ time.

The stand-up comedian revealed this in an interview with Hitz1039fm posted on Instagram.

Basketmouth said, “I’ve just been floating for the past six years and told myself and team that I’ll be coming back to comedy for five years and quit.

“I have planned my life to drop the mic when at 50, though I’ll still be cracking jokes but not professionally. So you could see me doing a gig or promo, but I will not charge anyone to perform again because I have made enough.

“I would say I have made enough by committing myself long enough to the act, and it’s time to take a break or quit and just have fun till the end of time.

“I’m into TV right now, movies, series, and concert production. That’s where I want to start a new journey and experience something new.”
