Basketmouth said 2024 will be a year to remembe because of the different exciting projects that he has lined up for release.

The comic act also expressed satisfaction with his comedy career of 25 years, noting that it is time for him to explore other opporunities in the entertainment industry.

Basketmouth said; “I featured in Brotherhood mostly because I was curious to see if I could pull it off, and I want to believe I did. Maybe when I get a good script with a daring character, I just might take a shot at acting again.

“However, I will be producing at least three movies this year, starting with A Ghetto Love Story. The rest will be announced as time goes on. We have some exciting projects coming up. My team and I have been working tirelessly for a couple of years now preparing for 2024.

It will be a year to remember for sure. I am embarking on a new journey and I am desperately looking forward to it. I have been doing comedy for 25 years now, and I think I’ve had a good taste of it already. I believe it is time to explore new opportunities in music and movies.”
