Basketmouth is the name that is on our lips right now as he continues to make waves on the international comedy scene by becoming the first Nigerian comic to have his own dedicated TV special, “Comedy Central Presents Basketmouth – Lord of the Ribs”.
The channel recorded a one-hour highlights show based on the 2015 edition of “Lord of the ribs” last night, Eko Hotel and Suits, Victoria Island, Lagos.
We were very much impressed by the line up that included Basketmouth himself, and guest comedians Robert Powell (USA), Griff (USA), Buchi(Nigeria), Bovi (Nigeria), Okey Bakassi (Nigeria), Salvador(Uganda), Ndumiso Lindi (SA) and David Kau (SA) ….. Wait a minute, David Kau isn’t he dried up in some old age home??? Thanks for reviving him Basketmouth!
Basketmouth commented, “I am very excited to be working with Comedy Central and MTV Base to expand the reach of Lord of the Ribs to a pan-African television audience.”
If you didn’t catch the show last night, hold your breath for just a little while as it will be broadcast to 50+ countries in sub-Saharan Africa onComedy Central in December.
We spotted a number of celebrities 2Face and Annie Idibia, Sound Sultan, Adekunle Gold, Bovi and Seyi Shay who looked almost unrecognisable without her layers and layers of makeup! Ladies let’s talk about this now (comparison of picture with makeup and without)
We’ll just leave it right there, Well done Baskemouth!!!
