Millionaire Nigerian comedian, Basketmouth ‘may be’ joining the People’s Democratic Party in the race to unseat President Muhammadu Buhari or another candidate presented by the ruling All Progressives Congress for the 2019 presidential election.
Six days ago, Nigerian ‘slippery tongue’ – Bright Okpocha popularly known as Basketmouth mocked the chances of Donald Trump’s victory at the just concluded United States of America presidential election where he defeated Hillary Clinton of the Democratic Party that produced President Barack Obama.
According to the 38-year old rapper and actor, he would run for the Nigerian presidency in 2019 if Donald Trump of the Republican Party emerges as the winner of the election.
In his words:
“If Donald Trump wins the US election, I’m so running for the Presidential election in Nigeria 2019,” he posted. Events turned against his cynicism and sarcasm when Trump orchestrated a dramatic upset in the election that saw him cruise to sensational victory despite the controversies that trailed his candidacy.
To fulfill his vow, Basketmouth declared his presidential ambition without a political party announced.
“My Esteemed people, in fulfillment of my threat/promise regarding the outcome of the just concluded #uspresidentialelection I am announcing my candidacy for the Office of the President of our dear country in the 2019 general elections. Consultations are ongoing and I will announce at a future date under what party. #MakeNigeriaBRIGHTAgain,” he said.
Well, its clear Basketmouth is up to one of his comical gimmicks from which he has made a fortune over the years of a glowing career.
Basketmouth is married to a beautiful woman named Elsie and their marriage is blessed with two kids.
