Why I took up acting role in ‘Brotherhood’ movie – Basketmouth

Popular comedian, actor and music executive, Bright Okpocha, popularly known as Basketmouth, has stated that he took up a role in the blockbuster movie ‘Brotherhood’ to test his acting skills.

He said even though he is not fully into acting, he will consider returning to the screens if he gets another good script.

Speaking in his latest interview online, the comedian said 2024 will be a year to remember because of the exciting projects he has lined up for release.
I featured in Brotherhood because I was curious to see if I could pull it off, and I want to believe I did. I just might take a shot at acting again when I get a good script with a daring character.

“I have some exciting projects coming up. My team and I have been working tirelessly for a couple of years now preparing for 2024.
I have been a comedian for 25 years now, and I believe it is time to explore new opportunities in movies and music,” he said.

Basketmouth is one of Nigeria’s most successful stand-up comedians. He started as a drummer in 1991 before drifting into rapping in 1994.
In 1995, he created “Da Psychopaths,” a group of seven people, and started performing and rapping. However, the group disbanded before issuing any recordings. In 2005, Bright was discovered by Oppa Williams when he participated in his comedy program “Night of a Thousand Laughs.”

Basketmouth appeared in “My Flatmates,” an African magic show, in 2016. In addition, he recently announced the release of his online comic series “Papa Benji” in December 2020.
