LILONGWE (Malawi NewsNow ) — Popular Nigerian comedian Bright Okpocha aka Basketmouth will perform  in Malawi on December 5, Qoncept Creative, the organisers of the event have announced.

You may not need to have heard about this man. You will be cracked up because he is simply funny. He has been cracking people’s ribs for the last decade.

“Save the date. Basket Mouth on December 5,”a teaser on the big screens of the Bingu International Conference Centre soon after the Ladysmith Black Mambazo show on Saturday read.

The comedian is popular across the world and whenever he holds shows in Europe and America, they are sold out.

Basketmouth is a former church boy, an instrumentalist to be exact.

His biography reveals that he is a man who thought drumming was going to win him an adorable following but without a drum, he realised he could crack up a crowd. Before he decided to go mainstream as a comedian, he was a musician under a group called Da psychopaths.

Basketmouth has a B.Sc in Sociology and Anthropology from University of Benin.
