Basketmouth explains criticism of Wizkid over Davido’s wedding

Popular Nigerian comedian Bright Okpocha, fondly called Basketmouth, has clarified why he made a remark about Wizkid while discussing the social media impact of Davido’s wedding.

Recall that during Davido and Chioma’s wedding on the 25th of June, 2024, Basketmouth expressed his frustration with promoting his Canadian tour due to the overwhelming attention on the wedding.

He further mentioned that even Wizkid’s social media activities didn’t receive much attention because everyone was focused on Davido and Chioma’s wedding.

This comment did not go down well with Wizkid’s fans, who threatened to “cancel” him.

While speaking on the incident during an episode of Backstage Banter with Isi Ijewere at the Toronto stop of his Canadian tour, the father of four explained that his remark about Wizkid was merely “a marketing technique.”

“Wizkid is my guy…that was a marketing technique. But I knew it was going to be edgy.

“I knew it was going to hit people. I knew they were going to get upset and they did exactly what I wanted them to do. It worked,” he said.
