Why Ali Baba didn’t make my top 5 comedians list-Basketmouth on ”The Truth”


In a new episode of ‘The Truth” with Olisa, ace comedian,Basketmouth was asked to name his top 5 Nigerian comedians.He listed Gandoki,Bovi,Buchi,Okey Bakkasi,Aj Baba..

When a surprised Olisa asked why names like Ali Baba, AY,Julius weren’t on the list, he said he would have included them if he could name 10..When probed further on why veteran comedian,Ali Baba was omitted,he said

For me, I don’t like putting Ali baba on the same level.When he was grooming me,we went for a burial and Ali said, look around, crack 5 jokes with everything you have seen.I tried but could only crack one.Ali Baba then told me to listen,he cracked jokes with everything and gave me all the jokes..So that is something else.
