Artist profile: Basketmouth.

Basketmouth dazzled the crowd at Ayva center, Houston Texas, spiting out homegrown jokes with the usual crude spin.  He had the audience on a roll! Every funny bone was struck.  Basketmouth was on his Basketmouth Uncensored tour, making his gracious stop over in Houston.  The event was welcomed by a packed venue with little standing room.  There were roars and cheers as the audience were taken on the misadventures of a dysfunctional mind.  As usual, his comedy is not for kids, he warns "You all paid for this shit!" forewarning the audience on the impending unleashing.  Nothing is safe or off limits as long as this comedian is concerned, tackling issues on sex, family, religion, Nigerian police, the diaspora, the government, the gay community.  He got comfortable as he settled down to the anticipating crowd.  Basketmouth is an animated performer, every body part is engaged in his routine.  Notable are his springy step, how wide those eyes can open and how fluid his limbs fly with his fingers as an accessory.  

Basketmouth has honed his craft over many years, coming from humble beginnings during his school years, to days when he could be found on YouTube, till now, filling arenas.  He's now a highly sought after comedian on an international scale, working with heavy weights like Cedric the Entertainer. He's manged to garner so many loyal fans waiting for what would come out of his mouth next.  He can rightfully retain the title as the leading comedian in Nigeria.
