Rib cracking comedian, Bright Okpocha better known as Basketmouth, says people who beg on the streets and has two hands and legs are lazy people and should try to think of what they can do for themselves.

Explaining his challenges through, Basketmouth revealed that if he was not a comedian, he would have done something else that could have made him better than who he is today.

He revealed that he went as far as taking the job of a disc jockey just to survive in the street which is even the more reason why his jokes are street base.

Basketmouth also disclosed that he had to take standing from Benin to Lagos in a Luxurious bus just to come to Lagos for shows, adding that he owes a lot to Ali Baba and 2Baba who always support him with the sum of N500.

Furthermore, he explained that he earned N8.000 in his first show in Jos which he co-host with fellow comedian, Julius Agwu. He stated that he had no room to sleep and had to beg Julius to let him sleep in his room and he had to sleep on the ground.
