Veteran stand-up comedian, Atunyota Alleluya Akpobome professionally known as Alibaba, has revealed that popular comedians, Basketmouth and AY used to live with him.
He said he allowed the rival entertainers to stay in his boy’s quarters years ago when they were still coming up in the industry.
Alibaba made the disclosure when he featured as a guest on an episode of The Honest Bunch Podcast co-hosted by On-Air Personality, Nedu Wazobia.
The ‘King of comedy’ said; “Basketmouth and AY… When you think about it, these are people who were living in BQ [boys’ quarters] with me back in the days.”
It may be recalled that Basketmouth and AY had a 17-year rival which was recently squashed when the latter apologised. Subsequently, Basket sent an invite to Ayo Makun to attend his comedy show at the Eko Hotel & Suites in Lagos.
