Bright Okpocha, who is popularly known as Basketmouth, was born September 14, 1978, in Lagos state. The ace comedian, who is also an actor, hails from Abia State; and holds a degree in Sociology and Anthropology from the University of Benin.

But, because we know the usefulness of pictures when it comes to telling stories, we then decided to continue this piece with basically just photos of Basketmouth; as we try to unveil the evolution of him, from his unknown days as Bright Okpocha to now, where it can be said that Basketmouth is arguably Nigeria’s finest comedian.
