Basketmouth, real name Bright Okpocha, is a Nigerian comedian who began stand-up in 1990, while also honing his skills as a drummer and rapper, in various bands throughout the 1990s.
Although getting booed off his first comedy stand up show in 1999, he started researching what would go down well at a local University, Benin, and his popularity skyrocketed. His gigs increased in size with each performance, and he's won various awards since, including National Comedy Award for Best Comedian of the year in 2005, and Best Standup Comedian on the year in 2006.
He formed a one man stand-up comedy show which made history in Nigeria in 2006, (Basket Mouth Uncensored 1,2,&3). Later that year he established a consulting/event & Artist management company, and has since become extremely poplar across social media platforms, with over a million followers on both Facebook and Twitter.
