Ace Nigerian comedian, Basketmouth, recently lamented about
the way some Nigerians react to some issues, which he says is

The comedian, speaking on ‘Rubbin Minds’, said the
r*pe joke was taken out of context by many people, explaining that the
joke was not actually celebrating the cankerworm. He further said that
he meant no harm on anybody, pleading with those by the joke.

am sorry about it, honestly, I am sorry about it, but, I tried as much
as possible not to let it consume my creativity because if I start
saying, oh you can’t talk about this, there shouldn’t be any topic that
can’t be talked about, it’s a joke.

“I crack jokes about my own
death, do you understand, and people laugh about my own death, it’s just
a joke. Let’s grow beyond this. Definitely, I’m not going to crack a
joke about rape again, I shouldn’t even be saying the word. I’ve learnt
my lesson, but we shouldn’t have limits,” he explained.

Basketmouth also confessed that the issue helped him boost the sales of his comedy show in the United Kingdom.

I’m happy that controversy came up, it helped me sell my tickets. I
sold out, my show was sold out big time, and we even started selling
standing tickets. There weren’t meant to be standing tickets, regular
tickets were supposed to be 25 pounds but because of the controversy,
London Guardian carried the story, even compared me with Jimmy Carr, my
tickets sold out. We even sold extra 600 standing tickets at 75 pounds!
So I’m looking for another controversy, though not that type,” he said.
