Basketmouth Is Standing Against My Growth In The Comedy Industry – Destalker




Stand-up comedian, Oghenekowhoyan Onaibe Desmond, popularly known as Destalker, has claimed that his senior colleague, Basketmouth is serving as a stumbling block to his growth in the comedy industry.

The comedian stated this during an appearance on the latest episode of The Honest Bunch Podcast co-hosted by actor, Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, aka Nedu.

According to him, his name was struck out in the past with some prospective sponsors referencing his senior colleagues.

Destalker wondered the reason he has failed to get sponsors for his shows despite bagging the title of Best Comedian for five years.

How can I win best comedian for five years, I do show, no sponsor?

“I wrote proposals, there are companies that agreed to come in, but they would say, ‘Okay, I will talk to some of your senior colleagues.’ That is my problem.

“Somebody called me one day and said, ‘What do you have with Basketmouth?’ I said nothing and he said go and beg him,” Destalker alleged.
