Top comedian and all-round entertainer, Bright Akpocha, aka Basketmouth, yesterday, announced marriage break-up with his wife of 12 years, Elsie, with a viral statement that their privacy should be respected, suggesting that people should not dabble into their affairs.
The statement reads: “As much as it pains me to bring my personal life to the public space, this is an unavoidable situation. After much deliberations, my wife and I have made the difficult decision to end our marriage.
“As we move forward separately, we will continue to work together to give our beautiful children all the care, love, guidance and support they need.
“We humbly ask that you respect our privacy, as we navigate through these times.”
Basketmouth’s drama is coming barely a week after Paul Okoye and wife, Anita, were officially pronounced divorced by a Nigerian court.
