Comedian Basketmouth to grace Molapo Piazza


This year’s Gaborone International Music and Culture Week (GIMC) will see one of the most outstanding comedians alive perform at Molapo Piazza on September 4, 2015.

Dubbed Basketmouth, the Nigerian comedian enjoys international fame that has seen him hosting his own shows on MTV Base for three years running. Basketmouth prides himself as the first African comedian to host a one-man comedy concert at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo (now Eventim Apollo) in London, the United Kingdom (UK), which was a huge success.

His international fame has also seen him do nine different concerts including Basketmouth Uncensored Live at the 02 Arena, Nigerian Kings of Comedy, The African Kings of Comedy, Comedy Central in South Africa, Lords of The Ribs, among others.

Basketmouth is also famous for hosting shows featuring Jay Z, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Joe, Boys II Men, Sean Paul, Wyclef Jean, Cool and the Gang, Akon, Dru Hill, Buster Rhymes, Fat Joe, Snoop Dogg, Ciara, Chris Brown, Brian McKnight and many more.

His star rose when after being booked as part of a three-year long tour.  As part of Playsafe Rave, he toured almost all the major cities in Nigeria.

Basketmouth’s popularity grew even bigger when he was a regular act at Motherland, a monthly music concert, performing at motherland for a straight two years, in his early career.
