Nigerian Comedian and Actor Ayo Makun, known by his stage name ‘AY‘, have opened up on his long-standing feud with fellow comedian Bright Okpocha, with stage name ‘Basketmouth’.
The two comic actors have been on a long-standing row, which Basketmouth has previously said was about a private discussion AY had with his lawyer.

In an ‘Ask Me Anything‘ session AY organised on his Instagram page, the father of two claimed that though Basketmouth has an “uncontrollable superiority complex”, he does not have issues with him.
The 50-year-old actor further stated that he had to avoid Basketmouth’s “incessant childishness”, as such became necessary for his sanity.
A follower asked him, “@aycomedian, do you have any issues with Basketmouth?”
Ayo Makun responded by saying, “I don’t have issues with him. But people having unnecessary issues with you is the price you sometimes pay for being progressive.
“He has been battling with his uncontrollable SUPERIORITY COMPLEX for the longest. So avoiding his incessant childishness only became necessary for my own sanity.”
Another inquisitive fan chipped in, “In other words, the both of you don’t talk.”
AY responded, “We only talk to those who want to talk to us. Does this make sense?”
