Nigerian comedian Basketmouth has disclosed why he boycotted Saturday’s National Assembly and presidential elections.
In a post via his Instagram page, Basketmouth explained that his shows outside of Nigeria were planned a year in advance to secure a good venue and that changing venues due to the election date would cause him logistical problems.
“ To have changed my date on such short notice would have been a logistical hazard not to myself but to the whole crew. Elections have not always been in February. But my show always was, as a valentine special.”
The comedian said he is proud of every Nigerian Youth that participated in the poll. He also thanked his fans for understanding why he could not vote.
Meanwhile, Elsie Okpocha, the estranged wife of Nigerian comedian, Basketmouth, has advised women against rushing into marriage when they are not ready.
In a video posted on her Instagram page, she urged Nigerians to stop pressuring women to get married early.
She argued that when a woman is not married, she’s probably taking her time or has not found the right person yet.
