Nigerian comedian and actor Bright Okpocha, better known by his stage moniker Basketmouth, was born on September 14, 1978, in Lagos State. He is a top comic who has produced nationally recognized stand-up comedy events like Basketmouth Uncensored.
The #TwoThingsChallenge, which Basketmouth arranged on Instagram, drew condemnation from his followers after a young admirer shared a video of him speaking inappropriate things about sex with a youngster in near view.
With his brother Godwin, Basketmouth studied sociology and anthropology at the University of Benin in Edo state after completing both his primary and secondary schooling in Apapa Lagos, Nigeria.
Basketmouth received the National Comedy Award and the Best Stand-up Comedian of the Year awards from 2005 to 2006. In 2016, Basketmouth made an appearance on the cast of the Africa Magic production “My Flatmates.”

Although Basket Mou comes from the eastern Nigerian state of Abia, he was born and reared in Lagos State. In 1991, he realized he was good at drumming, and in 1994, he started rapping. He then started an unprofessional group called “Da Psychophats” with seven members.
They began going to concerts and rapping in 1995, but they disbanded before putting out any official music. He later started a new rap group called “Da Oddz” with his brother Godwin and Muyiwa Ola-Phillips. They performed at a few events but failed to gain popularity because Nigeria did not accept their brand of rap.
The majority of Basket Mouth’s income comes from endorsement deals with brands like Glo, from hosting concerts, from acting, and from other show business endeavors. He charges $2 million and more for performances. According to estimates, he will be worth N1.8 billion in 2020.
This mansion in Lagos was purchased by Basketmouth; it has a pool, two parking spaces, and other intriguing features. On her birthday, he gave it to his wife. He published a touching message on Instagram.
“I’ve been thinking of the best birthday wish, best lines, something that will blow your mind, something out of this world…..but then I realized…..those are just words, words can’t quantify what you mean to me, how you make me feel, how you’ve blessed me with love, peace, and happiness. I can only use words to wish you a happy birthday, but not what you mean to me. Happy birthday, baby.”

It is a four-door hatchback with an elevated ride height and either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, and it is based on the Accord sedan. Without looking like an SUV, it has the appearance and adaptability of a wagon or hatchback. The Crosstour benefits from the additional adaptability of the rear hatch and has a roomier interior with a cabin that is wider than the Accord.
2. Lexus LX570
He first announced the news on his Instagram with the caption, “Just got back from the naming ceremony of a new kid. She had the moniker Aunty Maria. Bravo, brother.
The interior of the Lexus 570 is exactly as spacious as the outside, providing the necessary space. Because of this, the third row’s layout has less baggage space and is a little more challenging to access.

It has been reported that the vehicle is a custom vehicle, meaning that every component was made to Basketmouth’s specifications. This is a unique order. The car can only be ordered it cannot be viewed in any showroom anywhere in the globe.
According to reports, Basketmouth was the only person in Africa to have ordered the vehicle. He spent N20 million for the automobile.
