Basketmouth revealed this in an interview with a radio station in Ghana.

According to the comedian, he has been “floating” for the past six years and has decided to refocus on comedy for a period of five years. After that time, he plans to step away from the profession and focus on other ventures.

He said in the interview: “For the past six years I have just been floating, then last year I told myself and my team, I am going back to comedy I want to do five years and I am quitting. I am quitting in 5 years.

He continued: I have got five years to go to do this and I am done. I will still be cracking jokes but it wouldn’t be a professional thing. So if you see me doing any gig, it is maybe I am doing pro bono but I will not charge anybody to perform again.

Basketmouth expressed a desire to explore other creative avenues. He is currently focused on movie production, TV series, and concert production and hopes to be remembered for more than just his comedy.

I have made enough, I have committed myself to the art enough to take a break or quit. I am now into movies, series, and concert production. want to experience something new, and I want to be remembered for something else other than comedy, he said.

Today's Quote

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
