Bright Okpocha, better known by his stage name Basketmouth, a Nigerian comedian, has announced the dissolution of his marriage to Elsie Okpocha.
In 2010, Basketmouth and Elsie Okpocha were united in marriage in a lovely ceremony. In order to provide their children with the care, love, guidance, and support they require, Basketmouth pledged that they “will continue to work together.”
On December 22 in the afternoon, Basketmouth posted a statement on his official Instagram page announcing the surprising information.
He wrote: “As much as it pains me to bring my personal life to the public space, this is an unavoidable situation.
After much deliberation, 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.”
The comedian also implored all sympathisers and the general public to respect their privacy.
“We humbly ask that you respect our privacy as we navigate through these times. Thank you.”
