Nollywood actor and comedian, Ayodeji Makun, aka AY, says he would feel happy to leave the world without speaking to Basket Mouth and Julius Agwu.
Ay made it clear that he is done making efforts towards reconciling with his colleagues, Basketmouth and Julius Agwu, who he has had long standing issues with.
Recall, Basketmouth and AY have been entangled in a 17-year-old beef, which AY claimed was over an unpaid N30,00 debt owed him by Basketmouth.
On his part, Basketmouth debunked the allegation claiming that he and AY were never friends and that contrary to AY’s claim that he was not allowed to attend his wedding, he never invited AY.
Julius Agwu on the other hand granted an interview where he accused AY of organizing a comedy show on a date that many know he does his own show.
In a fresh interview with Teju Babyface, AY said he has made efforts to reconcile with the duo but to no avail and that at this point, he will be happy if he goes to his grave without reconciling with the duo.
He made it clear that their senior colleagues are aware of his efforts to reconcile with the duo and that the senior colleagues asked him to stop with the reconciliations if the parties involved are not yielding.
“The bros [senior colleagues in the comedy industry] knew and at some point in time, they had to ask me to slow down. They were like: ‘You’re doing too much. You are putting in too much to make this thing work. Friendship is not by force.
I was believing that ‘No, this can work’. Even in my last stand-up comedy, I had to go on stage and I did another routine ‘My guy. How’s my guy? This is my guy. If you see this guy, tell him he’s my guy.’ And the following morning, every where exploded again. ‘We are not friends. We are not that. We are not this.’
So, for me now, I’m not pushing anything anymore. As I’m here now as AY, if I have to go to my grave without sitting with any of these guys to say ‘hello, ‘hi,’ I will be happy.” he said.
