Basketmouth told Peter Okocha during an interview on BBC News program –Focus on Africa – which was monitored by Vanguard Potpourri that the universality of his jokes was the reason why his jokes are well received abroad.
He said: “I try as much as possible to make my materials universal. So that way, I don’t goof.
When I come the UK to do my gigs or even in America, I try as much as possible to avoid saying anything about Nigeria.
These guys don’t know anything about Nigeria.
My jokes are always universal, which is the reason I can easily break into those grounds.”
Nigerian comedian Bright Okpocha popularly called Basketmouth has revealed why his comedy shows abroad have been hugely successful.
