During a recent interview on Ebuka Obi-Uchendu’s Black Box Interview series on Bounce Radio, the conversation of alleged disunity among comedians in Nigeria came up.

Ebuka brought up the alleged comedy beef with AY during the conversation, and Basketmouth revealed that he fell out with his fellow comedian because he messed with loyalty.
“I don’t mess around with loyalty. He came into my space and messed around with loyalty,” the comedian said about his issue with AY.
He said something that he wasn’t supposed to say. That was going to cause a rift between me and this person.

The 43-year-old comedian, however, played down the situation and revealed that they have settled it and moved on.
