Ace comedian, Bright Okpocha, aka Basketmouth, opened up on how he cope with family and career as he sat for an interview with TOFARATI IGE.
Exert as gathered by NEWSCASTARS.COM below:
How would you describe yourself as a father?
Every time I get home, whether I just left the house even three hours ago, my kids are always excited to see me. That means I am doing something right. Even when I go to pick up my daughter from school every day, she is always excited. And, it’s not just with my kids; even my nephews and nieces react that way. I can say I’m one of the best dads in the world.
How much of Basketmouth, the comedian, do your children get to see?
They don’t see Basketmouth at all. The only person they see is Bright Okpocha, their father. The only time they experience Basketmouth is when we go out and people want to take pictures with me. They (my children) don’t really come to my shows, and even if they do, they stay in a hotel because of the kind of ‘rubbish’ I say on stage some times.
However, there are times an element of Basketmouth pops out and I see them laughing so hard. I try as much as possible to separate myself from my work before entering the house.
