Maven Nigerian comedian, Bright Okpocha, popularly called “Basketmouth”, lost his mum in the early hours of Tuesday.
Basketmouth, one of Nigeria’s most endorsed celebrities, took to his Instagram page to share the sad news and also mourn the loss.
“Last night my angel left me,” he wrote. “My first love stopped breathing and it’s the deepest pain I’ve ever felt. I love you for every sacrifice you made to make me the man I am today; I’ve loved you through the tough times. I’ve loved you through happier days and all I can say at this point is that I will love you forever. I will miss you mummy. – May her soul rest in peace Amen.”
The death comes a month after the comedian was robbed at gunpoint in his Lekki home in September.
